Various sources are now reporting that Jennifer Lopez has officially signed on to join the American Idol Season 10 judges’ table.
The speculation comes just days after Ellen DeGeneres announced she has resigned from the show and rumors started swirling that Kara DioGuardi had been fired. So who else will replace Simon Cowell (who left the show back in May), Kara & Ellen? Apparently, the producers want Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, and they’re working on negotiations with Tyler this weekend.
This means an announcement could still happen Monday at FOX’s TCA Summer Press Tour, depending on how things go.
Tyler is definitely the producers first choice for the new male judge, but if a deal cannot be reached sources say Harry Connick Jr. will be signed instead.
It looks like Randy Jackson will be the only AI judge to return to for another season.
FOX won’t confirm anything and has repeatedly said “no comment” to all requests for information.
