Despite a million rumors to the contrary, Randy Jackson will apparently be returning as a judge on ‘American Idol' this season, at least according to this tweet by Simon Cowell and this report in the Hollywood Reporter.

It seems the plan is still to have four judges this year, with Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj the front runners to join Jackson and Mariah Carey. Negotiations with Enrique Iglesias have ended because of cost considerations. Namely, the amount of closed captioning people they'd have to hire for a show that had Nicki Minaj AND Enrique Iglesias.
