Though he's the last of the original lineup of judges, Randy says being a judge on American Idol with Steven and Jennifer is fun. "We've just kind of morphed into this Season 10 thing that is really exciting," he says. "I think it's a good pairing and, what's most important about these kinds of shows, Oprah, is that we're having a good time. It's great camaraderie."
Randy says even though former American Idol host Simon Cowell is on to new projects, they're still friends and talk regularly. "He's my boy," Randy says. "It's like you're graduating high school and you're going to different colleges."
