Jennifer Lopez Could Be Next American Idol Judge
There’s another shake-up in the judging panel of American Idol. For next season, Ellen DeGeneris may be out and Jennifer Lopez would be her replacement.
Several sources have already reported that singer and actress J.Lo is very close to signing a deal with American Idol.
Meanwhile, Ellen DeGeneris in an interview, explained while she is leaving the judging panel: “I loved discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent- it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings.”
Thus, the next season of American Idol would have two new faces when it starts January as Simon Cowell have also bid the show goodbye last season.
FOX has still no official announcements regarding the new roster of judges for next season. However, as per their contracts, Randy Jackson and Kara Dioguardi will return.
