Jennifer Lopez Returns to 'American Idol' as Performer on the Finale


Jennifer Lopez


As talks about her new album begin, J.Lo is tapped to be one of the performers on the two-part finale that will go on air this mid-May.

Jennifer Lopez is coming back to "American Idol", a source tells E! News. The singer, who sat on the judging panel along with Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson on the eleventh season of the singing competition, will return to the show as a musical guest on either the first or second night of the two-part finale airing May 15 and 16.

It's unclear what song the bootylicious singer will perform on the show's upcoming finale. It's widely known that she's currently crafting new music for her next studio installment. One of the tracks will be a collaboration with Chris Brown. She hopes to bring back "Jenny From the Block" flavor with it.

Aside from her performance gig, there's also rumor that she's wanted back as a judge for the "Idol" next season. She reportedly could step in to replace either Nicki Minaj or Mariah Carey if one of them gets the boot.

"There will definitely be changes to the judging panel for next season," a source claims. "Fox thought the Nicki-Mariah contrast would make for ratings, but there is concern it is like nails on [a] chalkboard for middle-America viewers."

Another source dismisses the report, "This is just another ridiculous Idol judge rumor, likely started by talks of Jennifer performing on the finale."
