Will Jennifer Lopez Be Replaced By Shakira On American Idol?

July 05, 2011 09:00 AM by Lisa Princ

While Jennifer Lopez is still unsure if she is returning to the judging panel for season eleven of American Idol on FOX, rumors are starting to emerge that the triple threat may be getting replaced by Shakira. Keep reading for more!

We know that both Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler have been confirmed for the new season of American Idol, Jennifer Lopez’s fate on the panel still remains up in the air. The singer and mom of three year old twins has a very busy schedule and American Idol may not fit in this season as she tries to juggle multiple gigs.

According to The Daily Mail, as Jennifer continues to stall on contract negotiations for season eleven, Fox is being forced into looking for a replacement – just in case of course. Insiders are saying that Shakira is high on that list, followed by Shania Twain, but again that is only if Jennifer Lopez does not sign on for another season.

While we don’t know whether or not Jennifer Lopez will sign a new contract, we do know that she will be starring in the new movie “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” as well as running her own reality show with her husband Marc Anthony. Jennifer remains busy with her music career as well, so whatever her decision, fans will never have a shortage of her!

What do you think about Shakira or Shania Twain possibly taking over for Jennifer Lopez on American Idol? Did you enjoy her as a judge this season? Comment and share your thoughts with us and stay tuned as we will bring you the latest information on Jennifer Lopez’s contract for the new season!

    What? Shania has no interest in this show.
    She is a much bigger selling star and artist than either Shakira or Lopez.
    But Shania turned down Idol last year when they wanted her. Why does her name kept being brought up when she has massive Las Vegas Ceasors palace deal and a new album she is making and she lives in Switzerland and Bahamas. Shania is way too busy and has never been interested in this job.

    Same with Shakira, though. She is on a world tour right now and is selling out everywhere from the US and Europe to places many pop stars don’t even go to, like South America and the Middle East. She might not be super popular in the US but with her music, her highly profitable tour, and philanthropic efforts combined (and let’s not forget all the time she has to devote to Gerard Pique now), Shakira has no real reason to do AI right now. The only reason she would go out of her way to be on the show is if she REALLY wanted to be extremely popular in the US again, which doesn’t really seem to be on her list.

    I don’t think Shakira would take the job, but if American Idle could actually land “SHAKIRA”, their ratings would go through the roof!!!!!

    Shakira? Really?I’s kindda like asking maddona to go to that show …. Ok shakira might notbe too big I’n the u.s.a but lets not forget the us I’s not ALL the world I’s just 1 country shakira I’s prob up there with the top 5 most popular artist and successful artist around the world, of all time so unless shakira wants to try and conquer the states then she just might accept , i hotta admit if the land shakira on ai ratings will skyrocket ui know i won’t miss any show…

    I don’t want Shakira on American Idol because American Idol needs someone from America and i don’t think that Shakira will make a good juge! Well, I mean I don’t know who is the other girl but, if it is possible then I would still like for Jennofer Lopez to be on American idol! :]

    Well, I think many people in the USA know Shakira so she’s actually very popular over here. American Idol would be good for her. Her video (Waka Waka) is on the list of most popular videos all time with almost 500 million views and the USA is on the statistics.

    SHAKIRA is considered by most professional artists, to be the most tallented and successful female rock and roll artist of all time. It is common knowledge that “Shaki” has always been American Idle’s first choice, for a judge, however I think Shakira has more important things to do than waste too much of her time with American Idle.
