The sole remaining original judge on “American Idol” has finally left his post.

Randy Jackson, who tried to quit after the end of last season (almost the same time that Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler left the show and before the final Season 12 judges rounded up), has decided not to return for the upcoming season—for real this time.

It’s probably a good move, considering the fact that ratings are sinking fast.

“The Dawg” announced in an official statement:

“Yo! Yo! Yo! 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 continued:

“I am very proud of how we forever changed television and the music industry. It’s been a life changing opportunity but I am looking forward to focusing on my company Dream Merchant 21 and other business ventures.”

One can only guess the show’s fate from this point on…

Are you sad that this is Randy‘s last season on the show?
