Twelve years ago, Randy Jackson was hired to work as a judge on American Idol. Over the years, hes watched the show charge to more than thirty million viewers an episode. Hes watched the show sink to the single digits. Hes watched stars like Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood meet America for the first time, and, of course, hes watched a ton of his co-workers come and go. In fact, apart from Ryan Seacrest, hes the only piece of on-air talent from the first season still involved, but apparently, his tenure is rapidly drawing to a close.

Earlier today, the Dog announced he will resign his judgeship at the end of the current season. Over the past week or so, there have been rumors that producers might axe Jackson at the end of the year anyway, but regardless of their intentions, we know its now official. That being said, its unclear whether or not this is a good thing.

On the one hand, the show definitely seems like its broken. The format that has worked for so long isnt bringing in nearly as many viewers as it once was, and theres really not a whole lot of chemistry between any of the judges on this panel. Something needs to be done. On the other hand, however, Jackson has been a part of numerous successful panels during his run. Hes proven hes capable of bouncing off of many different personalities, and his music knowledge is the most impressive of anyone in the history of the show.

I see why Randy decided enough was enough, but that doesnt mean I necessarily think hes making the right decision. What do you think? Is this the right time for Randy to leave? Let us know your thoguths by voting in the poll below
