So far I have heard (and I apologize for not crediting as I can't even recall where I heard what, a mixture of online, the radio and tweets) that Steven Tyler may do it, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson, Justin Timberlake, and the list continues...
Steven Tyler was quoted saying yes he was planning to do idol.
Jessica Simpson apparently was turned down after her daddy/manager made too many demands.
And now JLo - the news today says she was being a diva, making too many demands and so they do not want her.
PEOPLE reports -
Jennifer Lopez won’t be a judge on American Idol after all, according to a source close to the situation.
The singer-actress had been closing a deal to be a permanent judge on the show for its upcoming 10th season but the deal fell apart.
“Her demands got out of hand,” says the source. “Fox had just had enough.”
With Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres both departing the talent search, the network had been pursuing a number of celebrities as potential judges, including Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler.
But now that Lopez is out of the running, the network may be looking at their earlier top picks again.
Other reports have said that the panel could go back to the original three-judge format.
Fox had no comment. A rep for Lopez did not immediately return calls for comment.
So, basically they are looking for a has-been singer who won't ask for much money or demands... and they expect the season to go well when the main drawing judges are gone?
Good Luck Fox, Good Luck.
