American Idol: Jennifer Lopez Approached FOX to Rejoin Panel

According to Radar Online, “sources” tell them that Jennifer Lopez approached Idol about rejoining the judges panel…next year.

It was Jennifer Lopez – not FOX – who initiated talks for her to return to the American Idol judging panel, has learned.

“J.LO had her manager Benny Medina approach FOX to alert them of her interest in rejoining Idol,” a source close to the situation revealed.

The 43-year-old pop superstar, the insider said, realized after her 2012 “Dance Again” world tour that she no longer wanted to endure the grind of touring and the constant travel it required.

I’m beginning to think all this gossip has been initiated by Jlo’s people. She’s got a new album coming out. It’s time for a fresh round of promo! Ugh. Idol. Is Jennifer really worth the 18 million asking price to return to the show? If you’re going to shake up the panel, REALLY shake it up.
