American Idol Finale: Will Tonight Be Jennifer Lopez’s Last Night On The Show?

May 23, 2012 02:30 PM by Lisa Princ

It’s no secret that Jennifer Lopez has been thinking about leaving American Idol, and with added pressure from Nigel Lythgoe, J LO will need to make a decision soon. Could it be possible that tonight’s live finale will bring an announcement from her? This could very well be Jennifer Lopez’s last night as an Idol judge!

Last week, Jennifer Lopez publicly revealed that she may not be returning to American Idol next season, and we could very well have an announcement tonight. Nigel Lythgoe recently spoke out, declaring that Jennifer Lopez needs to make up her mind, although he does not want to lose her – give me a break, it’s just easier keeping her than looking for someone else.

Ironically enough, days after J LO made those comments, it was revealed that she would be debuting a new reality series with her boy toy, Casper Smart. The New York Post is reporting that J LO has made a deal with Oxygen for the series, which will highlight Casper Smart prepping the rest of the dancers for Jennifer’s tour. Because, after all, Casper is the main choreographer for J LO’s new tour – contain your shock, folks.

Meanwhile, American Idol mentor, Jimmy Iovine thinks that losing Jennifer Lopez would be a big blow to the show. “She’s incredible, I hope she does it again. I know nothing about this. … I just mentor the kids and do my thing. And Jennifer’s wonderful. Funny and beautiful and talented. So I hope they keep her,” Iovine explained in a press conference last week.

We aren’t so sure we agree with Jimmy though. Jennifer Lopez seems too soft on the contestants, and most of the time  she only seems to reiterate what Randy or Steven have already stated. Aside from a pretty face, what does she really add to the show? Nada, and honestly, we can think of plenty other big name females to take her place.

What do you think? Should Jennifer Lopez walk away from American Idol? Will you be anxiously awaiting that news tonight? It may or may not happen, but we’ll be sure to have that information for you as we will be live blogging the finale! Comment and share your thoughts with us below!

    Jennifer Lopez may be an accomplished actress but when it comes to singing….she has a weak voice. Many of us don’t feel that she qualifies to be a judge on American Idol. Good Bye Jennifer…..you won’t be missed.

    -Jennifer was not the best of judges on the show. Her biased opinions and encouraging people to vote for the cute guys that could not really sing was pathetic. It was so obvious that the girls on the show were the real talent and is was said to see that Jennifer did not support the girls enough.

    She is getting over exposed in the world and that is a danger to anyones’ career.
