Jennifer Lopez will return to “American Idol’ as a judge with Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson, exec producer Nigel Lythgoe stated.
“I believe we’re still waiting for the official announcement, but I am delighted to say that all three judges, along with the brilliant host of ‘American Idol,' (are) back for the next season,” Lythgoe said.
A Fox spokesperson did not comment. In June, Lopez said in a BBC radio interview that she was "on the fence" about her return, though folks at Fox seemed confident when asked about Lopez at the recent Television Critics Assn. press tour.
