Jennifer Lopez to Join 'American Idol'
She acts, sings, and dances, and now Jennifer Lopez may be adding a new gig to her résumé. The superstar has reportedly signed on to judge America’s biggest television show.
Deadline Hollywood reports that J.Lo has inked a deal to become a judge on the tenth season of “American Idol,” replacing Ellen DeGeneres who announced her exit today. The singer-actress would serve on the judging panel with Randy Jackson and
Kara DioGuardi. Negotiations began months ago, but a deal was not finalized until this week.
Lopez was the celebrity mentor on Latin night during the talent competition’s sixth season. She has been busy recording her next album Love?, set for release on her new home at Island Def Jam.
Deadline Hollywood was first to report Lopez’s move from Epic Records to Island Def Jam.
