Rumors have been swirling that all 4 American Idol judges will be fired at the end of season 12. The rumor came closer to reality when Randy Jackson shockingly tendered his resignation on Thursday afternoon.

Now, E News is reporting that all four judges will indeed be leaving American Idol, and that sources say the announcement will come during the FOX upfront presentation to advertisers and media in New York City on Monday.

I’ll be participating in a conference call with FOX brass at 9 am ET and will be live tweeting all of the results! Heh.

Stay close to the blog on Monday, both FOX and NBC will be making announcements from their respective upfronts regarding their fall/winter schedules.
