As we all know, Randy Jackson is the last man at the American Idol judges' table right now.
So what does Mr. Jackson think of their departures?
"Steven and Jennifer are truly two of the most talented and consummate professionals I've worked with," Jackson tells E! News exclusively in a statement. "I was friends with them before we hopped on this crazy journey together and I have no doubt our friendships will continue long after. I will love them for life."
Jackson's future with the show is still up in the air. Although producers are said to be talking to Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus and Adam Lambert, a source says no final decision has been made about Jackson.
