*Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly took questions about the status of “American Idol” during a conference call this morning.
According to TV Guide, he confirmed that Randy Jackson will be exiting the show after the current season wraps this week, but would not comment on the statuses of the other three judges — Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban.
He did, however, say that it’s very likely that the panel next year would consist of only three judges and that the upcoming 13th season would feature some “new twists” to the show’s format.
“Our new season begins Friday morning after the finale,” Reilly said. “Everything at this point is on the table.”
