Jennifer Lopez made an announcement this morning but it wasn’t about her decision to sign with American Idol for season 11. She totally tricked us. Jennifer Lopez appeared via satellite on the Today show this morning to tease a big concert announcement with iHeartRadio. Read on to find out the details…
News is swirling that Jennifer Lopez is ready to make a big announcement concerning her fate with American Idol’s season 11 and that still seems to be the case. However, Lopez also appeared on the Today show this morning to make another big announcement that everyone assumed would be her decision regarding Fox’s American Idol — but wasn’t. You following? Keep reading, it will make sense.
“I’m here to announce iHeartRadio’s launch with their new concert. Me, Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys, Coldplay, Steven Tyler, Carrie Underwood, Steven Tyler, Black Eyed Peas. So many people. It’s going to be this amazing concert in Las Vegas on September 23 and September 24 to launch the new I Heart Radio, where you can kind of custom your own radio station. It’s pretty exciting. I’m glad to be doing it.”
Even co-host Ann Curry eluded to the fact that everyone thought they’d be getting the big American Idol news. Curry asked, ”A lot of people were thinking you were going to make an announcement about American Idol. When can we expect that?”
Jennifer Lopez coyly said, ”I love working on American Idol. I have no announcement to make as of this moment, but I promise you guys will be the first to know.” Then, we swear we’re not making this up, she seemed to look over her should and mention the E! network. Check it out and tell us if you noticed her say it.
E! online has been reporting that Jennifer Lopez is making her big American Idol announcement “any day now” and the way she said their name towards the end could be one more clue this is going to go down soon.
Either way, what do you think of Jennifer Lopez’s iHeartRadio announcement? Would you head to Las Vegas to see that big concert?
