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.
