HOLLYWOOD - The powers that be at American Idol have been working 24/7 trying to get all of their ducks in order before the start of the next edition of the hit music show.
Noted producer Nigel Lythgoe was fired along with music mentor Jimmy Iovine, and judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey.
The word now is that Randy "The Dawg" Jackson will be taking Iovine's place as the contestants mentor.
According to Music Moments Magazine Jackson has been told that he is not to use the phrases "Yo, Yo, Yo," or "Ryan, (she or he's) in it to win it!" or "Listen dawg."
The lone returning judge is Keith Urban the very popular country artist from down under (Australia) who was a viewer favorite.
Urban has reportedly asked one of the shows top executives if they can hire his statuesque wife Nicole Kidman to be the third judge, along with him and Jennifer Lopez.
Keith smiled as he said that it would be great to be sitting between a stunning brunette and a gorgeous blonde.
SIDENOTE: Calcutta Cotton with Music Moments Magazine spoke with Ryan "Peaches" Seacrest and he said that he would love to see the lusciously lovely, long legged Nicole become the third judge.
