American Idol will be all-new,it seems, this year. Well, new in that the judges will all be new. According to TMZ, Randy Jackson has become the latest judge to leave the "American Idol" lineup. The singer/record producer was the last remaining member of the show's original panel of judges after launching the first season with Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul in 2002.

So, Randy has followed the exit sign just like Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler did at the the end of the 11th season earlier this year. Jackson does say he plans on being a mentor for some of the contestants in Season 12.

The completely new panel of judges for season 2012 are Mariah Carey, and likely Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban once their deals are finalized.

Last year's American Idol winner Philip Phillips' latest single "Home" has gone platinum. Check out the video below.
