After a series of ratings bum notes, Fox is planning to fire all four American Idol judges after this season, according to a report by The Wrap. Mariah Carey, Keith Urban, Nicki Minaj, and Randy Jackson, who so far has survived every round of Idol judges’ musical chairs, are expected to get the boot along with longtime producer Nigel Lythgoe as the network hopes to retool the series to compete in the ratings with NBC’s The Voice. In addition to the judges shake-up, Fox is reportedly planning to redesign the show and nix dated tribute theme nights.
