One down, three to go.

A couple days after Randy Jackson quit American Idol, sources now confirm that Fox will make sure Keith Urban, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj all follow him out the door.

Reps for Fox and Fremantle are yet to comment on the report, but insiders tell E! News that all panelists will "definitely" be gone soon after Season 12 ends, as ratings have hit an all-time low for the series.

Look for this announcement to be made at the network's Upfront Presentation tomorrow.

Who may replace Mariah, Randy, Keith and Nicki?

It's far too early to really have an idea, but speculation thus far has ranged from Harry Connick Jr. to Justin Bieber to Kanye West.

Expect pretty much every big name in music to be mentioned as a possibility over the coming months.
