Jennifer Lopez Idol Deal Reportedly “Imminent”

I guess TMZ couldn’t let the Labor Day Weekend begin without throwing some Idol gossip out onto the internets?

Apparently, Fox is just about to close a deal with Jennifer Lopez to become Idol judge (Yawn).

Sources connected to the negotiations tell TMZ … contrary to some news reports … there has been no drama and no diva demands. As one source puts it, “It’s been typical negotiating.”

We’re told … absent a last-minute snag (which is highly unlikely) … the deal could be inked as early as next week.

“Idol” sources say producers believe Jennifer is the key to re-energizing the show.

Ugh. Now I’m going to have to sit on the internet and wait for the usual suspects to respond with their own “sources”.

Really, all the spoilers came early…and then it was regurgitation after regurgitation of the inevitable. The Idol judges WILL be Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler. We’ve known this for awhile. All the other reports were just noise.

I cannot wait for the official announcements to be made. This sh*t is getting SO old.
