"I think you'll see us all back," Jackson told P.I., confirming that American Idol judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler will be returning for a second season.
"I know there's some negotiations to be had but I believe you'll see us all back."
"It's never about trying to be like someone else," Jackson added, of the comparisons that he was acting like the new Simon Cowell.
"I am me. I'm still the dawg. I do what I do. I'm just trying to be me."
Jackson coupled the party with a performance series by three of his breaking artists - sultry four-piece Brunette, Black Eyed Peas-esque DaCav5 and Moscow pop import Grace V.
"He pushes me to work harder," Grace told Poison Ivy, on her mentor Jackson.
"He's kind and nice, but always honest. He won't tell you anything but the truth. He's like a father."
