After all the drama… Who is in? Who is out? How many will there be? It now appears that one thing will stay the same on “American Idol,” Randy Jackson.

“Idol” producers now appear to be sticking with one of the few constants on the show, and are reportedly turning back to Randy Jackson to fill one of the judges’ seats.

The Hollywood Reporter states that producers have pulled out of talks with Enrique Iglesias, and are now set on bringing Jackson back to the mix. Jackson, of course, joins Ryan Seacrest as the only talent to remain on the show since its 2002 debut.

Jackson would join Mariah Carey and likely Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban on the show. Both Minaj and Urban are said to be wrapping up individual deals to join the FOX series.

Meanwhile, former fellow judge and now rival Simon Cowell was quick to tell the world that he approved of the decision, tweeting, “Just heard randy is back on idol. Right decision.”
