Jennifer Lopez Reportedly Close To Joining American Idol Judge Panel – After rumors and rumors that Jennifer Lopez demands were too high for American Idol, it seems as though a deal is supposedly really close to being done.
According to TMZ, Jennifer Lopez is close to agreeing to a deal that will add her to the American Idol judge panel. It is said that her contract demands weren’t as overwhelming as people rumored it to be and FOX execs are working with her to get the deal done. If this is true, the deal could be done as early as next week.
American Idol has been looking to re-energize the show for quite sometime and now that Simon Cowell is officially gone, they are looking to try new things out to spice up the show. We’ll see how it goes but personally, I don’t think the show will be the same without Simon there.
Jennifer Lopez would be an interesting fit if she does end up being a judge on American Idol especially since she was a mentor on previous seasons. Though, I don’t feel like she would be that type of replacement we are looking for.
We’ll see if she even becomes a judge next week!
