Still A Rumor

FOX announced Thursday morning that country star Keith Urban would be returning for his second season on the American Idol judge’s table. But they claim no decisions have been made yet as to who will be joining him.

But Brad Bessey, Executive Producer of omg!/Insider claims he’s got word from a top source on the show that Jennifer Lopez and the Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am will be joining Keith when season 13 gets underway.

Brad broke the news on his Twitter account shortly after the Urban announcement was made, saying  “brace yourselves my @adamlambert friends. I just heard from a VERY INSIDE source @AmericanIdol judges: @JLo @KeithUrban & @iamwill.”

If true it’s bad news for the legions of fans who wanted to see former AI finalist Adam Lambert on the judge’s panel.  But fan favorite and seasons 10 and 11 judge Jennifer Lopez’s return would help get the show a much needed ratings boost from it’s disappointing season 12, which featured a self-obsessed Mariah Carey and an obnoxious Nicki Minaj as the female judges.

RumorFix has confirmed that J-Lo is indeed in talks with Idol and no word from will.i.am’s camp yet.
