The always fashionable Randy Jackson attended Nicole Richie's Fashions Night Out event in Los Angeles Thursday night, and couldn't be happier about how season 11 of American Idol is shaping up.

Jennifer Lopez signed back on after a tumultuous summer (she announced her divorce from Marc Anthony in July), but JLo is ever the professional when she is working.

"The vibes [on set] are great," Randy told Celebuzz on the carpet.

"Really great," he added. "You know what, what's funny about being back season 11 is I had no idea how much Jennifer and Steven [Tyler] loved me. It's weird, I know people love me, but God guys please- come on."

Randy told reporters that he wasn't relieved Jennifer and Steven signed back on as judges, because he knew they would all come back together:

"We had an amazing run last year, we'll have an amazing run this year. The talent has been amazing, and we had great instant chemistry. We are all performers and all industry people, so it's great. Fruitful and flavorful!"

As for former Idol judge Simon Cowell's new show X Factor? Nothing wrong with some competition!

"Listen, he's going to be truly successful he's a dear friend of mine, love him to death," Jackson told E! Online. "Wish him Paula, L.A Reid, Nicole much success. You know, they are our dear friends. It's nice to have a little friendly competition Simon Cowell!"

Can't wait to watch them both!

    I'm looking forward to both American Idol and X Factor this year. I think both will be great. I'm glad they're not competing back to back. American Idol will air after X Factor premieres, which is a good thing for all concerned. There's room for both and more. The Voice proved that.
