Jennifer Lopez Close to Signing ‘American Idol’ Deal
It looked like negotiations were off the table between Jennifer Lopez and American Idol producers, but we hear it’s highly likely that the songstress will join the judging panel for the upcoming season of the reality show, after all. TMZ reports the deal is in the final stages, and everything could be signed and sealed as early as next week!
It was reported that J.Lo was making some crazy “diva demands” early on, and that’s why she was taken out of the list of possible judges. Apparently, that wasn’t the case. An insider says “it’s been typical negotiating.”
Sources say Idol execs are excited to bring some new energy to the show, and are hoping Jenny from the Block will be able to give the competition a new life. She’s definitely got some big shoes to fill with Simon, Ellen, and Kara gone.
