by at . Comments

American Idol needs judges! Just a day after Steven Tyler announced he will be leaving Idol, Jennifer Lopez has decided to hand in her notice as well.

Lopez teased the decision on The Today Show yesterday morning, but now it's official. Just like Tyler, Lopez cites a desire to focus on other things as her reason for leaving.

The singer told Ryan Seacrest this morning on his radio show, "I honestly feel like the time has come for me to doing the other things I do that I’ve kind of put on hold."

So who will take the places of the departed judges? Adam Lambert seriously wants the gig, with Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and - why how when why WHY!?? - Charlie Sheen also being thrown around.

What do you think the judge's table will look like for Idol Season 12? Let us know in the comment section!
