Rest easy all of you Jennifer Lopez and American Idol fans! Nigel Lythgoe has confirmed she will be returning.
The executive producer said, “I am delighted to say that all three judges, along with the brilliant host of American Idol, is back for the next season.”
So that means we get Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, and Ryan Seacrest on our television for another season of the singing competition show.
There were so many reports going back and forth as to whether or not she would return to her judges’ chair. Jennifer Lopez at one point told BBC, “I don’t know. I haven’t been forced to make a decision and I’m glad about that because honestly I’m very on the fence about it.”
She went on to say, “I had an amazing time doing it and I love it but I have a lot of other things happening, and it’s going to come down to me making a choice of what I want to do for the next year.”
With her divorce from Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez’s participation in the iHeartRadio Music Festival and her return to American Idol will keep her busy.
