American Idol judge Randy Jackson has renewed his contract with the television show, where he will remain for at least the next three seasons, according to Variety.

The multimillion-dollar deal means that all three of the show's judges and host Ryan Seacrest are committed to the program for several years to come. Paula Abdul signed a three-year contract in March and Simon Cowell inked a five-year contract last November.

Peter Liguori, Fox Entertainment's president said about Jackson "as a musician, A&R executive and referee make him invaluable to the show".

A producer, bassist and exec, Jackson has been with the show since it started in 2002. He spent time in the rock group Journey and eight years as vice president of A&R at Columbia Records, as well as four years as senior Vice President of A&R at MCA Records. He has worked with artists such as Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Madonna, Elton John and Destiny's Child.
