“To put all of the speculation to the rest, after 12 years of judging on ‘American Idol’ I have decided it is time to leave after this season,” he told E! Thursday

Word on the street is that all the judges will be tossed as Fox and the producers look to resuscitate the show which took a ratings nosedive this season. Jackson is the only member of the original judge panel to survive to this season.

Fox is scheduled to unveil its new primetime plans to advertisers Monday afternoon at the Beacon Theatre in Manhattan.
