After all that’s been said about Randy Jackson’s future involvement with American Idol, it looks like he’ll return to the judging spot he’s held down for the last ten years.

Randy gave a coy interview with The View yesterday in which he dodged questions about what his role on the show will be. Today, Deadline reports that Fox has decided to renew his contract as a judge for Season 12 of Idol after talks with Latin singer Enrique Iglesias proved unsuccessful.

Former co-judge Simon Cowell got wind of the story and tweeted, “Just heard randy is back on idol. Right decision.

Do you think Fox made the right choice?
