Jennifer Lopez Isn't Returning to 'American Idol', Source Says


Jennifer Lopez


Though J.Lo hasn't publicly denied the rumors, the source claims the 'On the Floor' singer has no intention to return as an 'Idol' judge

Those hoping to see Jennifer Lopez back in the judging panel of "American Idol" may need to prepare to get disappointed. Following reports that the show's producers wanted the Latina singer to assume the role of an "Idol" judge again, a source now tells E! News, "It's not happening."

J.Lo herself didn't instantly shut down the rumors when she was asked about the matter. "I don't know what's happening over there," she said Monday, June 10 on "On Air with Ryan Seacrest". "I don't know. We will see. I'm always open to the infinite possibilities that the universe has to offer. So you never know."

Speculations about who will be the new judges in "Idol" season 13 had started floating around even before Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj confirmed their departures, following the footsteps of longtime judge Randy Jackson. Keith Urban's future is still unclear as the country music star said back in May, "I have no official information of anything."

Meanwhile, former "Idol" finalist Jennifer Hudson was reported to have signed up to be a judge in the upcoming 13th season. Per Blankens has been tapped as the new executive producer for the show, replacing longtime executive producers Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick.
