American Idol Judges Jump Ship

On Thursday, Steven Tyler confirmed that he’s leaving American Idol after just two seasons as a judge on the FOX smash; earlier in the day, Jennifer Lopez hinted (as long suspected) that she’s splitting as well.

Now, a source tells Us Weekly that Tyler and Lopez’s fellow judge Randy Jackson is also making a big move — with plans to leave the judges’ panel but remain involved with a mentoring role on the show.

“After some long… hard… thoughts… I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress American Idol before she boils my rabbit,” Tyler, 64, said in a statement. “I strayed from my first love, Aerosmith, and I’m back — but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I’ve got two fists in the air and I’m kicking the door open with my band.”
