JLo signs on as the new Idol judge

It’s finally confirmed! Jennifer Lopez had everyone hanging by a thread when she kept on changing her mind about being an Idol judge. The reality TV show is all about finding the best talents in America (duh?). Recently though, it has turned out to be more about finding the next judges to replace everyone who has left (everyone but Randy has gone, FYI).

JLo was reportedly having problems because she wants a $15 million dollar contract (demand much?), which FOX didn’t agree to. A month after her initial demands were turned down, she finally said yes and “settled” for a $12 million dollar contract. Probably realized that it was better than doing nothing at all.

The auditions for the 10th season have already started and the show is scheduled to air on January 12, 2011. Things will be much different with Simon gone. Fans and even haters will surely miss him.

Other celebs being considered to judge are: Shania Twain, Steven Tyler, Elton John, Harry Connick Jr. and Chris Isaak. The shortlist doesn’t impress me at all. Still hoping for Paula and Simon to come back on the show…

    I can’t see JLo as being anything but nice. Which is a shame. Part of the greatness of American Idol is that Simon was mean and like you said, Paula was crazy.

    …. and I’d love to “settle” for $12m!
