Will Jennifer Lopez be new “Idol” judge?
The guessing game as to who will replace Simon Cowell on American Idol continues but the question of who will replace Ellen DeGeneres is apparently already answered: Jennifer Lopez.
Deadline Hollywood is reporting exclusively that negotiations with Lopez began in secret about a month ago and was closed earlier this week clearing the way for Ellen’s departure to be announced. DeGeneres apparently made it clear a few months ago that she wanted off the show which saw its ratings drop last season.
It seems like a terrific time for Lopez to join Idol since her once red-hot recording and movie career has cooled.
What do you all think?
