The dawg is back in the American Idol house.
Fox is expected to announce today that Randy Jackson will officially return as a mentor for the contestants, sources tell E! News exclusively.
Jackson, who announced his resignation from Idol as a judge back in May, will replace departing Jimmy Iovine, the music producer who has been with the show for the past three seasons. However, our insider reveals that Jackson's Idol gig will be much different than Iovine's.
"His role will be more involved than Jimmy's," our source says.
