Jennifer Lopez may be returning as an 'American Idol' judge
Jennifer Lopez may be planning to return to American Idol next season, which no one thought she would do. A reported $15 million can change anyone's mind, though.
RadarOnline says the deal also includes bonuses, which is equal to what Britney Spears got for The X Factor, but not quite the amount Mariah Carey won for her single season on Idol. It's also less than the $20 million J.Lo made her second season on the show in 2012 (she started at $12 million the first year).
The show is slated to have a three-judge panel next season instead of the usual four. Keith Urban has already been confirmed, and Deadline Hollywood is saying will.i.am will be the third. And to think, Kara DioGuardi is the only one who wanted to stay.
