It’s Official: J.Lo Joins American Idol
Surprised? Neither are we.
Jennifer Lopez has signed a one-year, $12 million deal with Fox to be the new judge for American Idol, which means she will be joining the ranks of Randy Jackson (the only veteran judge left) and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith.
Supposedly, J.Lo’s representatives and those of Fox did try to make a similar deal about a month ago, but it failed. Reports had said that J.Lo’s demands were too high and “diva,” and although her camp always denied those allegations, still no one really knows what went on. Nonetheless, the deal is finalized now and we will have her as a judge for at least a season on Idol.
Along with the $12 million, Lopez doesn’t have to make other Fox TV or film projects, so that’s nice. She can just sit at the Idol desk, make some statements, and GTFO. Sounds like a good deal to me!
