I guess Mariah Carey or anybody else with some actual singing ability was too busy.  I mean seriously, they couldn't have ask Gladys Knight to judge.  Hell, they should've asked Christina Aguilera.  She is definitely in need of a gig since her latest album is not performing up to par.  We all know that chick can sang.

Former "Fly Girl" Jennifer Lopez is poised to return to television – this time as a judge on "American Idol."

The singer-dancer-actor was close to signing a deal to join Fox TV's hit singing contest, a person familiar with the negotiations said late Thursday. The person, who was not authorized to comment publicly, spoke on condition of anonymity.

Fox declined comment. Phone and e-mail messages for Lopez's representatives were not immediately returned.

The "American Idol" opening for Lopez comes with comedian-talk show host Ellen DeGeneres' departure from the show.

Degeneres announced Thursday she was leaving after one year as judge.

"A couple months ago, I let Fox and the 'American Idol' producers know that this didn't feel like the right fit for me," DeGeneres said in a statement. The comedian-talk show host said she realized that while she "loved discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings."

In May, Simon Cowell exited after nine seasons to start a new talent show for Fox.

  1. Come on give JLO some credit, she took what she had and made millions! Maybe the idols can learn from that, just look at last season's castoffs. With all the talent on the judges panel the contestants keep going down, maybe they'll learn something this year.
