There's been buzz of Idol producers trying to scrap a deal with JLo to return as a judge. An AI source tells E! News, "There will definitely be changes to the judging panel for next season." The source went on to say, "Fox thought the Nicki/Mariah contrast would make for ratings, but there is concern it is like nails on [a] chalkboard for middle-America viewers."
JLo left the show in 2012 after just two seasons alongside her fellow Idol judging vet, Steven Tyler. No word yet on any permanent return to the show but we're super excited just to see JLo get her groove on at her old stomping grounds.
Are you excited to see Jennifer come back to Idol? Do you want her to return as a judge? Do you think Nicki or Mariah will get the boot? Tweet us your thoughts at @OKMagazine!
