Nigel Lythgoe Fired from 'American Idol' After 12 Seasons
The 63-year-old So You Think You Can Dance judge confirmed his firing via Twitter.
“just had 10 days in the Bahamas, rain everyday. I get back to the States and get fired,” Nigel tweeted. “Sad! Monday we choose our top 20. I’ll smile again.”
“Yes, don’t worry I’m on #SYTYCD. FOX still loves me. It’s not a personal thing they just feel IDOL needs new leadership after 12 Seasons,” he added.
This year’s American Idol‘s finale lost seven million viewers compared to 2012. It is likely they are looking to revamp the show. Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj, and Mariah Carey have all confirmed they won’t be back next season.
