Other acts signed to the label include Tim McGraw, Florida Georgia Line, Reba McEntire, The Band Perry, Brantley Gilbert, and The Voice‘s Danielle Bradbery.

The mentor position has previously been held by Jimmy Iovine and Randy Jackson, who entered the role after ending his run as a judge.

Randy Jackson Is Leaving 'American Idol' For Real This Time

After thirteen years on the hit reality competition series, Randy Jackson is officially going to be leaving American Idol for real this time.

The 58-year-old music producer served as a judge on the program for twelve seasons before announcing his departure to work on other ventures. He then returned to the show in the mentor slot vacated by Jimmy Iovine.

It has now been announced that Randy will not return for season fourteen next year.

Randy has been such an integral part of American Idol since Day 1, both as a judge and as a mentor. He’s provided great advice and support, shaping the success of so many Idols we have discovered over the years. We wish him all the best in his next chapter. Randy will always be part of our Idol family and we hope he’ll visit from time to time,” Fox, Idol producers FremantleMedia North America, and 19 Entertainment said in a statement (via The Hollywood Reporter).

Jennifer Lopez Has Been 'Mentally, Emotionally, Verbally' Abused in Past Relationships

Jennifer Lopez struts her stuff looking as gorgeous as always as she arrives for more American Idol Hollywood auditions on Wednesday (October 29) in Los Angeles.

The 45-year-old entertainer was joined by fellow judges Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr.

Jennifer is opening up about past abuse in her book “True Love.”

“I’ve never gotten a black eye or a busted lip, but I’ve felt abused in one way or another: mentally, emotionally, verbally,” Jennifer wrote.

“Every day that you don’t walk out that door, every day you accept things in your partner and in yourself, is a day that you’re saying it’s okay,” Jennifer added. She told People, “I had to learn to take care of myself and know my worth. When things are not working out, and you’re not being treated in a way that you want to be treated, you have to look at that because it’s nobody’s fault but yours. You have to take control and you have to set up your own boundaries. You have the power to change it.”

FYI: Jennifer is wearing a Naeem Kahn shirt, alice & olivia pants, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and Melinda Maria jewels. Keith is wearing Levi‘s Jeans.
