Randy Jackson snuck away from 'American Idol' during this finale week to sit down with 'Chelsea Lately.' Chelsea Handler took the opportunity to talk to him about the new judges and ask his predictions for the finale.

"They're a little bit warmer, a little bit sweeter," Jackson said of Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez. He intimated that it might be because they are current artists, and perhaps can relate more readily to what it's like to be in the contestant's shoes.

Surprisingly, Jackson was willing to make a prediction as to this season's finale match-up between Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery. First, he said that he suspected this would be the final two from the get-go. But then he said, "I think probably Scotty's probably got a slight edge; a very slight edge."
