Jennifer Lopez Announces American Idol Exit: It's Official!

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!

Thank god Jlo is admitting she is leaving Idol, but she not admitting she been fired and was going to be replace, just like when Sony Records fired her back in 2010, and Ryan Seacrest knew all along back when he sign his 40 million new contact that the judges were going to replace because of poor TV ratings and that the show need “New Fresh Energy� for season 12, anyway Jlo better find another career because she doesn’t have any career now that she is leaving Idol, and I don’t mean concert tours, because that tour is already in trouble and falling apart , artist are already quitting the tour before it even got started and that the fans are really mad and are demanding their money back, putting the whole tour of being canceled completely (Bait and switch, promoting big artist to sell out the concert and then switch back without the big artist, sly move Jlo) Jlo, Failure after failure it doesn’t seem to amazed anyone anymore. Get help please.
