In case you weren’t getting enough gentle weeping or fabulous four-foot-long extensions in your life, The Hollywood Reporter claims that Jennifer Lopez’s American Idol gig will continue for a second season. “I believe weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re still waiting for the official announcements but I am delighted to say that all three judges, along with the brilliant host of American Idol, is back for the next season,Ã¢â‚¬Â AI producer Nigel Lythgoe said on Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show today. We guess J. Lo just couldn’t stay away from her loving fans. Or the soulful performances. Or the big beautiful paycheck that’s being deposited directly into her beige bandage dress fund as we speak.
Earlier this summer J.Lo’s return to AI was a subject the singer/actress danced around like she’s now dancing around her divorce papers from Marc Anthony. “I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know,” she told BBC Radio 1 in June. “I havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t been forced to make a decision and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m glad about that because honestly IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m very on the fence about it.” She’ll join Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler, who have already signed on for Season 11, because honestly what else were they going to be doing with themselves?
