This sucks! As we prepare for the upcoming fourteenth season of "American Idol," the show has now suffered a major loss. Original judge turned mentor Randy Jackson has made the announcement that he will not be returning when the show does in the Winter. "After 13 seasons, I felt now was the perfect time to leave American Idol," according to a statement.

We will miss you Randy-dawg!
