Randy Jackson Will Always Love Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez

by at . Comments

Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez may be gone from American Idol, and chatter may already be buzzing over their replacement (Adam Lambert? Mariah Carey? Aretha Franklin?), but these judges will never be forgotten.

By their now-former co-star at least.

Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez

"Steven and Jennifer are truly two of the most talented and consummate professionals I've worked with," Jackson told Gossip Cop in a statement. "I was friends with them before we hopped on this crazy journey together and I have no doubt our friendships will continue long after. I will love them for life."

Lopez confirmed her departure to Ryan Seacrest on Friday, while Tyler released his own statement earlier in the week.

There's been talk that the series is now looking to start over and will next give Jackson the axe.

What do YOU think, THGers? Which of the following stars would you most want to see as a Season 12 judge?


Adam Lambert would make a fine judge on A. I. He is intelligent, honest, creative and very fair. He would critique the contestants with good advice. Besides that he has a fabulous voice.


How about one of the former nysnc guys other than Justin Timberlake.

I watched Marie Osmand while in LV. She was terrific. Cindy Lauper was terrific too when I saw her. How about them? They are wealthy but not drowning in money. They are pretty good entertainers.


I will tune in to the show if Adam Lambert is chosen as a judge. He is interesting and fun to watch.


No lip syncers should ever be allowed to judge others singing abilities.(Nikki, Will.I.Am) Adam Lambert is the greatest male voice of this generation & more than qualified to be a judge...not to mention, gorgeous to look at!


Adam is fascinating! Voice, charisma, intelligence.....he's got it all. I'd tune in. :) Like Fergie too.


Reba terrific.


Miley is immature.


The panel would be great if Reba,Mariah and Nick L. were judges.
