Randy Jackson: Returning to American Idol!

by at .

Who let the Dawg back in?

Just a couple months after resigning his post as an American Idol judge, Randy Jackson is reportedly on his way back to the show that made him famous:

Reports indicate he will take over for Jimmy Iovine as competition's ongoing contestant mentor in 2014.

Following a disastrous season, American Idol is attempting a reboot... but failing miserably so far.

Keith Urban will return as a panelist and will likely be joined by Jennifer Lopez.

But Kanye West turned the show down. And so did Diddy.

Sources now say Lopez is pushing for Scooter Braun, the manager and BFF of Justin Bieber, to become the third judge, with producers likely open to the idea simply because some connection to The Biebs is better than none.

What a ratings-challenged mess.
