And then there were none? TMZ reported late Thursday that Randy Jackson would be stepping aside as a judge on "American Idol," leaving none of the originial judges on the show. Jackson won't be leave the show totally -- he will be staying on in a mentoring role. As for who will be joining Mariah Carey as judges on the new season, nothing is confirmed, but sources tell the gossip site that "Idol" is "99 percent done" on a deal with Nikki Minaj. But after that, who knows. Despite reports that the show was interested in bringing on Kanye West or Diddy, they are both reportedly out of the picture.
