Jennifer Lopez An American Idol Judge – It would seem that the opened spot of “American Idol Judge” has just about been filled. According to gossip website TMZ.com, Jennifer Lopez has all but signed the contracts that puts her in the judges seat on the hit show.
There has been a vast amount of speculation as to who would replace the quickly emptying judges roles, especially after Simon Cowell announced that he was leaving, along with Ellen Degeneres.
Not only that, but it would seem that the show’s producer, Nigel Lythgoe, decided against re-hiring judge Kara DioGuardi. This leaves the lonely veteran judge, Randy Jackson, and two empty seats to fill.
Numerous celebrity names have been thrown around, including everyone from Sir Eltong John, to Justin Timberlake, to Jessica Simpson. As of now, the rumor of Jennifer Lopez stepping on as a judge seems to be the most solidly confirmed.
According to the TMZ sources, the finalization of the deal is set to be confirmed sometime next week. And despite the diva-ish behavior that has been reported of Jennifer Lopez, it would seem that she too has gone through the “typical negotiations” before officially being hired onto the show.*Sponsored Links*
