So it’s official Jennifer Lopez has officially signed on for Â anotherÂ season ofÂ American Idol…like she wasn’t going to sign of course she was! Jennifer was probably trying to hold out for as much money as she could…well done Jennifer!
Global icon Jennifer Lopez, rock legend Steven Tyler and Grammy Award-winning producer Randy Jackson will return to the judgesâ€™ panel for the 11th season of AMERICAN IDOL. The trio, along with EmmyÂ®-nominated host Ryan Seacrest, will begin their search for Americaâ€™s next singing superstar when AMERICAN IDOL debuts Sunday, Jan. 22 (10:00-11:00 PM ET/7:00-8:00 PM PT), immediately following the NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME on FOX.
â€œHaving both Jennifer and Steven return to IDOL in 2012 alongside Randy is such a positive reflection on what was a wonderful and hugely successful season last year, and everyone is delighted,â€ said Simon Fuller, Creator and Executive Producer, AMERICAN IDOL.
â€œI am very pleased to have our panel of judges back for the 11th season of AMERICAN IDOL,â€ said executive producer Cecile Frot-Coutaz. â€œTheir chemistry and ability to select amazing talent made last season one of our most successful yet, and we look forward to going on another exciting ride.â€
â€œFrom the very first day of auditions, we knew we had something special in our new judges panel, and weâ€™re so happy that America felt that way too,â€ said Mike Darnell, President of Alternative Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. â€œTogether with Ryan â€“ who is fantastic day in and day out â€“ they built an incredible connection with both the contestants and our viewers, and Iâ€™m absolutely thrilled to welcome them all back to IDOL for another season.â€
