"The Dog" is staying in the house. Looks like Randy Jackson will be coming back for an 11th season of the highly rated "American Idol: EW.com has confirmed that Jackson is "In it to win it!"

I'm a little shocked by this one, according to EW.com, Steven Tyler will be back as a judge as well.

As for Jennifer Lopez, it appears that she is “on the fence” about her future with with the show, which returns January 2012.

I just hope in the off season these too learn how to be a little more critcal. All the sweet praise this season really hurt my sweet tooth. Please tell these kids they aren't always "amazing" and "perfect."
