July 13, 2012 10:34 AM by Lisa Princ

Surprise, surprise! Jennifer Lopez made the official announcement today that she will not be returning next season to American Idol. We all knew this was coming, after her “iffy” comments yesterday, and Steven Tyler’s announcement, Jennifer took to her Idol co-worker, Ryan Seacrest to share her sad news! Hooray for no more sugar coating on Idol – more after the jump.

The months of wondering are finally over! Jennifer Lopez paid Ryan Seacrest a visit on On Air with Ryan Seacrest, where she tearfully announced that she is officially leaving American Idol after two seasons. Jennifer Lopez explained why she was leaving: “I honestly feel like the time has come that I have to get back to doing the other things that I do that I put on hold because I love Idol so much.” Jennifer may have been full of tears, but Idol fans all over are rejoicing this news and hoping for a better judge.

Jennifer went on to reveal that leaving American Idol was one of the hardest decisions she has ever made, and added: “I could do Idol for the rest of my life, but that would be giving up a bunch of other things. We had an amazing run.” J LO’s announcement comes after last night’s news that Steven Tyler would also be stepping down, although fans had an idea for a few days now that J LO would be leaving after the comments she made Thursday on the Today Show.

And then there was officially one….will Randy Jackson be the next judge to step down? Rumor has it that he may be…that story is still developing, so hang tight! We’ll keep you up to date with the latest Idol news and information!
