by at . Comments

We have an update on Jennifer Lopez, and it does not concern her personal life for a change.

The newly-divorced singer may not be go back to Marc Anthony (no matter how much he begs and pleads), but American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe confirmed today that she's signed a deal to return to the show for season 11.

Season 10 Panel

"I am delighted to say that all three judges, along with the brilliant host of American Idol, is back for the next season," Lythgoe said on brilliant host Ryan Seacrest's radio program today.

Terms of J. Lo's contract were not disclosed, though earlier reports claimed she would be receiving a salary of $20 million/year, a wild sum of which Steven Tyler is allegedly jealous.

That is merely a rumor, however. All we can say for certain: you won't be seeing the above act repeated on next May's finale.


I am very sorry Jen will be around. She is very self serving and one way - her way. I will not watch and I know you don't care. Thwe slanted way the judges acted toward Scotty Mccreery did it for me. big bye bye


Jst go ahead my dear


But a deal is a deal, and anytime a show performs with monumental success, it becomes a hard act to follow. Some things are meant to just level out and maintain course.


I`m glad cos she`s very talentad and she csn give a very good advice.
When i see this photo i always ask myself how did they manage to look so good together,so much in love??? in a million times i wouldn`t have guessed that after a while they will split
