American Idol Judges Panel Will Be Announced on 9/22

Fox announced this afternoon in a press release that Idol host Ryan Seacrest will FINALLY introduce the judges panel at a press conference at the Forum in Los Angeles on Wednesday September 22, Noon PT. Idol producers will also be present at the big reveal.

Ryan Seacrest tweeted: “Looks like I have some new plans on wed! I will be able to introduce the @AmericanIdol judges panel! We will send u a pic! Can’t wait”

It’s expected that the announcement will confirm what we’ve heard in countless reports, that Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler will join Randy Jackson on the Season 10 judges’ panel.

Interscope/Geffen/A&M Records chairmain Jimmy Iovine–is also expected to play a role on the show.  Parent company UMG will distribute Idol music for 19 Recordings beginning in Season 10.

Erm. Does anybody care? The producers dragged out the announcement too long. At this point, the reveal is anti-climatic.
