Word has just come in that FOX and Jennifer Lopez have come to a contractual agreement and that Jennifer Lopez will be the newest judge on the hit show, American Idol!Â How did this happen?Â Read on to find out!
Just a few weeks ago it was announced that Jennifer Lopez was playing the diva and that her demands were too great.Â FOX didn’t want to pay her the $15 million dollars she was reportedly asking for, and could not guarantee her other opportunities, like movies and TV pilots, would be coming her way.
Yesterday we reported that talks were back on and that it looked like she was close to agreeing to $12 million in compensation.Â People just announced that the deal is done!Â It looks like J Lo will be joining prior judge Randy Jackson, and if all the reports are true, Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler on the judging panel when Hollywood week begins.
So what do you think of the new judges and Jennifer Lopez becoming one of them.Â Nigel Lythgoe has vowed to get American Idol back to the great show it once was and get the ratings back up.Â Do you think this group of three judges will be able to do that, or do you think that it is a case of too little too late.Â Let us know!
If you didn’t take our poll yesterday, take it now and let us know if you want to see Jennifer Lopez as judge or not!
