American Idol judge, Jennifer Lopez, is “on the fence” about returning for a second season on Idol she tells BBC Radio. J. Lo has so many other projects in the works right now that her time is very limited but she has not been made to make a definite decision…..yet. And it appears she is thankful for that.
Ratings for this year’s Idol were up and the show’s three judges looked to be getting along well. The question is with this diva’s soft heart could she really pull of a second season? Some of the eliminations seemed painful for her to watch and she actually cried during a couple. After having Simon Cowell’s nasty and cantankerous attitude on the show, some felt it was quite refreshing to have a softy sitting in the judge’s seat. Perhaps J. Lo was too soft and a second season too much for her tender feelings? Maybe after one season Jennifer Lopez felt she would do better with her own singing competition with hubby Marc Anthony, which is reportedly in the works. This show will feature Latin singers who have undiscovered singing talent.
Whatever Jennifer’s reasons are, who will Fox get to replace her? That’s a good question but it definitely leaves more options opened to American Idol. Judge Steven Tyler has signed on for another year and veteran Randy Jackson will be there as well. What singer will mesh well with these two personalities? Idol will have to have a big name to fill Jennifer Lopez’s shoes to keep the ratings up, that’s for sure.
