Jennifer Lopez will return as an ‘American Idol’ judge

Jennifer Lopez will return to “American Idol.”

During Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this morning, “Idol” executive producer Nigel Lythgoe confirmed that J. Lo will be back for a second season to judge the best budding young vocal talent this country has to offer. She will be joined again by Steven Tyler and “American Idol” mainstay Randy Jackson.

“I am delighted to say that all three judges, along with the brilliant host of ‘American Idol’ is back for the next season,” Lythgoe said, giving Seacrest license to reprint the fact that he’s brilliant in a news item on his own Web site.

Seacrest also tweeted the news, and noted that auditions for the upcoming season begin in two weeks.

This is technically not an “official” announcement since Fox, so far, has not confirmed it. But it’s fair to assume that the newly single Lopez will be back in primetime vocal chord-assessment mode come January, when “American Idol” returns. How much is she getting paid for the gig? Along with Fox’s official announcement, that information has not yet been revealed.
