Let's leave Jennifer Lopez's messy personal life aside for a moment and focus on her professional universe: Just how close is the singer to returning in 2012 as a judge on American Idol?
VERY, according to Cécile Frot-Coutaz, the CEO of FremantleMedia North America, which produces the Fox competition.
“We’re in good shape," she told The Wall Street Journal. "No worries. No dark clouds on the horizon.”
An announcement may be made any day this week, which would seemingly be welcome by most Idol viewers.
Despite losing Simon Cowell and despite upheaval at the table due to the departures of Kara DioGuardi and Ellen DeGeneres, season 10 of American Idol garnered huge ratings with J. Lo and Steven Tyler on board.
