There must be a long line of folks waiting for a call from
television reality show mogul Simon Cowell to join the judging
panel of the US version of the X Factor. Jennifer Lopez got the
opportunity to be a part of the show but she had to turn it down
for American Idol.
The “Waiting For Tonight" singer was approached to join the
judging panel of the X Factor, but she chose to judge American
Idol, as she thought it fitted her better. She has reportedly been
signed for $12m to judge the American Idol, alongside Aerosmith's
frontman Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson.
The mother-of-two is however not sure if she will judge the show
next year. “I don't know if I will do another season. I'm taking it
day by day at the moment and we'll see what happens. I've been
having a great time, I can't lie. I'm really enjoying it and having
fun and enjoying working with the contestants," Daily Star
newspaper quoted her as saying.
