It has been speculated that they’d be headed to “American Idol” in the upcoming season, and now it’s official- Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez will both be in the judge’s seat.
The announcement came from Ryan Seacrest this morning, much to the delight of “Idol” fans all over the nation.
The only original AI judge on the panel will be Randy Jackson, as Simon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres, and Kara DioGuardi have all departed.
And according to a report, J. Lo will be compensated handsomely for her time- she’s getting $12 million for the season. There’s no word on how much Mr. Tyler garnered.
A friend of Lopez told press, “She’s very excited.”
Earlier this month, it was officially confirmed that Kara DioGuardi’s run on “Idol” was over.
Joining Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres as exiting judges, Kara told, “I felt like I won the lottery when I joined American Idol two years ago, but I feel like now is the best time to leave Idol.”
Making a name for herself thanks to her FOX job, Kara adds, “I am very proud to have been associated with American Idol – it has truly been an amazing experience.”©2010, GossipCenter.com. All Rights Reserved
