Sources are telling E! News and other media outlets that Jennifer Lopez will be returning to American Idol next season. Lopez herself, however, is still refusing to confirm whether she will be joining Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson for another seasonÂ as anÂ American Idol judge.
According to Marc Malkin of E! News, Jennifer Lopez has signed on to join Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler for the next season of American Idol but she is waiting for the ‘right moment’ to make the announcement.
Just a month ago, Jennifer Lopez told the BBC she was still debating her return to American Idol. “I don’t know. I haven’t been forced to make a decision and I’m glad about that because honestly I’m very on the fence about it,” Lopez said. “I had an amazing time doing it and I loved it, but I have a lot of other things happening…”
Appearing on the Today Show this week, Jennifer Lopez was still avoiding the question of whether fans would be seeing her on the next season of American Idol. “I love working on American Idol, love doing it,” Lopez told host Ann Curry. “I have no announcement to make as of this moment, but I promise, you guys will be the first [to know].”
