New York, (ANI): Jennifer Lopez is out of the running as the judge
for hit television program American Idol next season, according to
reports. According to People magazine, Lopez is no longer being
considered to be a judge on American Idol after her diva act wore
thin on Fox executives.
"Her demands got out of hand. Fox had just had enough," the New
York Daily News quoted a source as saying.
Singer-actress Lopez was close to an agreement to join the
ever-popular program, which lost judges Simon Cowell and Ellen
DeGeneres after its ninth season. Lopez and Aerosmith lead singer
Steven Tyler emerged as front-runners for the spots until the
Latina superstar was bumped.
Fox officials have refused to say who was coming aboard the
show, or even if incumbent judges Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi
are returning. They did say there's a mid-September target to fill
out the panel, whether it stays at three or four.
