Big changes coming for American Idol? UDPATE: Randy GONE!

Ok, I personally think they should have put this show out of its misery after Simon left.  Now it seems a major overhaul from the once ratings winner is going to happen before the next season.

Multiple reports have a big shakeup coming to "AMERICAN IDOL" for Season 13.

THE WRAP.COM reports judges RANDY JACKSON, MARIAH CAREY, NICKI MINAJ and KEITH URBAN will all be gone for next season. "All four are gone," an insider told THEWRAP. "They feel they've lost their core audience and they want it back."

Exec. Producer NIGEL LYTHGOE will also reportedly get the boot.

The reported changes also includes getting rid of dated themed-nights in an effort to attract a younger audience.

AMERICAN IDOL has struggled in the ratings department, often losing to "The Big Bang Theory" and "Modern Family."

UPDATED: According to Randy Jackson has confirmed he will exit the show at the end of this season!
