AMERICAN IDOL Is The Show Firing The Entire Judging Panel?

FOX 'American Idol' finalists party

I think it’s no secret that the ratings for American Idol have been less than stellar this season, even with the whole Mariah Carey/Nicki Minaj ‘fued’ that’s happened.  And now it looks like things are going to have to change on the show, namely the judging panel.

This season the show brought on 3 new judges Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey to join original judge Randy Jackson, but according to US Weekly all four judges are going to be fired;

“All four are gone,”

“They feel they’ve lost their core audience and they want it back.”

I don’t know if that’s the judges fault or the fact that there’s so many other shows similar on the air now?  I do miss Simon Cowell and his sharp tongue, and I think that it became more about the judges than the talent in recent years.  I guess a change really can’t hurt anything!
