So much for those rumors.

Following the near-confirmation that Jennifer Lopez would join the American Idol judging table next season, a new report says this will not be the case after all.

Speaking to People, the insider blamed J. Lo’s dive-like behavior for the dissolution of a deal, saying: “Her demands got out of hand. Fox just had enough.”

It’s true that Lopez is the only person to have the number-one album and number-one movie in the same week. It’s also true that was nine years ago and she’s spent more of the remaining time searching for relevancy. Perhaps she should check her ego at the Idol door.

So, where does the show turn now?

Steven Tyler is still a strong possibility, and Kara DioGuardi has not been officially let go yet. We’d love to see Harry Connick Jr. included, but no way the table doesn’t include at least one female.

Returning producer Nigel Lythgoe says he’d love to bring back Paula Abdul, but she’s under contract with CBS. Are you disappointed by this news? Do you wanna see Tyler and Lopez on board?
