Jackson Wants 'Idol' Focus On Talent, Not Judges

Tuesday, 19 Jan 2010 06:12 PM


It seems as if all the buzz about "American Idol" has been on the status of the judges and not the talent, and Randy Jackson says that needs to change.

Jackson feels that there's too much focus on "how we judge, who's on, who's not on, what's happening, all of that."

That's because the changing faces of the judges have provided the biggest news.

Simon Cowell recently announced he's leaving "Idol" for the U.K.-based competition series, "The X Factor," and Paula Abdul left after her contract deal fell through.

Jackson, along with Kara DioGuardi, Cowell and guest judges, kicked off the ninth season of "Idol" last week. Ellen DeGeneres will begin her stint on Feb. 9.

Jackson says he's "got some time left" on his "Idol" contract.
