Simon and Ellen have left the panel. Kara DioGuardi was reportedly ‘fired’ and speculation was rife that singer/ actress and businesswoman Jennifer Lopez would be joining the American Idol panel (or rather Randy). Well it’s not officially confirmed. J Lo will be the other judge on the hit show- and it’s believed to be a deal worth $12million bucks. Shame, shit life for some hey! According to Deadline.com, the star and her team made several demands, which included a $15million package for one year on Idol. That would put her on par with the show’s host, Ryan Seacrest who signed a whopping $45million contract for three years. Fox saw past her demands and now it’s believed J Lo didn’t have an issue with settling for 12mill (who would? Damn).
So what do you think about J Lo being on American Idol? She’s a talented woman no doubt, but damn 12million for someone whose last movie tanked at the Box Office and was dropped from her record label too comes as a bit of a surprise to me. I also think the bosses at A.I. are desperate to get their ratings back up to number 1. Let’s see how they do!
