Clarkson isn't the only pop star the network has their eye on."NBC wants J.Lo to be a part of it,” the source said. "She is the one person they would want to acquire before they figure anything else out.”

J. Lo might be on board. She told Ellen Degeneres about the finale in 2016, "You remember why you love this show. It just gives opportunity where there is none, you know, and it’s about dreams. And it’s about everything that America is about."
