It looks like all those rumors of Jennifer Lopez abandoning the American Idol ship are bogus! The show’s executive producer Nigel Lythgoe confirmed that Lopez, Steven Tyler and our favorite dawg Randy Jackson will all be back for another season.
“I am delighted to say that all three judges, along with the brilliant host of American Idol, is back for the next season,” Lythgoe told the show’s “brilliant” host, Ryan Seacrest, during an appearance on Ryan’s KISS FM morning show.
For months, there’s been speculation that J Lo would leave Idol after one season because of pressure from her estranged husband Marc Anthony to raise their children. At the time, reps for both Anthony and Lopez denied the reports to RumorFix, and it looks like they were telling us the truth.
