Jennifer Lopez, the 41-year-old singer/actress, has reportedly signed on to become a permanent judge on American Idol’s season 10.
“It’s true. She’s excited about it.” an industry source was quoted by People as saying.
The news comes the same day after Ellen DeGeneres announced she is leaving from her position as Idol’s judge for the show’s ninth season. “It was a difficult decision to make, but my work schedule became more than I bargained for," the talk show host said on Thursday.
Additionally, Kara DioGuardi has reportedly been fired, and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has been offered a spot to replace Simon Cowell on the judging panel as well, according to TMZ.
