Those who have been keeping track of the “American Idol” judges’ shuffle know that Ellen DeGeneres and Simon Cowell are both out, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler both might be in, Kara DioGuardi is reportedly out, and Randy Jackson is in limbo.
The big “dawg” himself recently told E! News that there is only one person locked in for Season 10.
“The only thing that’s for sure is Ryan [Seacrest],” Randy told E! at the 2010 Farmers Classic tennis tournament presented by Mercedes-Benz.
“Nothing has been decided,” he added of the judges.
Randy did note, however, he’d love to see J.Lo in the fold.
“If Jennifer Lopez is a judge I would be very happy,” Randy said. “I love her.”

Despite reports that J.Lo is likely to be the newest “Idol” judge, FOX Entertainment Chairman Peter Rice announced at the Television Critics Association Summer Session in Beverly Hills on Monday that nothing is set in stone.
“There are no signed deals with anybody,” the executive told reporters. “There has been tremendous speculation.”
“American Idol” Season 10 auditions were held on Monday in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The judges won’t be having their say over the contestants until mid-September.
