'American Idol' Season 13: Jimmy Iovine out, Randy Jackson back in as in-house mentor - report

Just when he thought he was out, they pulled him back in.Deadline reports that for the upcoming Season 13 of "American Idol," former judge Randy Jackson will be back -- albeit in a different capacity. Music producer Jimmy Iovine is reportedly leaving the series, where he's served as an in-house mentor since Season 10, and will be replaced by the inescapable Top Dawg.Jackson had served as a judge on FOX's long-running singing competition since its inaugural season, but was shown the door at the end of Season 12 when a near clean sweep of the judges table was made, seeing the exit of one-term judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. (Keith Urban, however, escaped a pink slip.)Jennifer Lopez is reportedly returning to the judges table after a season away, as well, meaning that the fresh start that Season 13 was supposed to represent will now look awfully familiar instead.Are you happy Jackson will be back...
