REPORT: American Idol to Drop All 4 Judges
Posted Thursday, May 9th 2013 @ 1pm

American Idol may look a bit different next season - the show reportedly will be replacing all four judges.

According to The Wrap, Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban - and even Randy Jackson won't be asked to return for season 13.

A show insider told The Wrap, "All four are gone. They feel they've lost their core audience and they want it back."

The Wrap also indicates that executive producer Nigel Lythgoe will not be returning; Ryan Seacrest seems to be the only veteran staying.

Ratings for this season of Idol have been way down, hitting a record low of just 11 million viewers last week.

At its peak the show pulled in 30 million viewers.

Fox has declined to comment on the report.
