So it appears the rumors are true.
Jennifer Lopez, who was hugely popular on American Idol for two seasons, is confirming reports that she may return as a judge to the talent competition show.
J-Lo, who was asked to perform on the season finale, tells ET, “That door’s not closed.”
She goes on to say, “My gut feeling is I know I love the show and I had a great time on it, but the honest truth is I really don’t know what my plans are.”
Perennial judge Randy Jackson has already confirmed he’s not returning to the hit-maker TV show for Season 13 and there is talk that Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj won’t be invited back.
“I still enjoy the show,” J-Lo says, “I still enjoy seeing those singers take that journey … for me, that’s the real heart of the show.”
