Jennifer Lopez gives hint of bidding adieu as American Idol Judge

The popular “American Idol” show may go another round with Jennifer Lopez. She announced that after two seasons of sitting next to Randy Jackson and Steve Taylor, she is ready to bid farewell to the show. In her interview with Savannah Guthrie on NBC’s “Today” on Thursday morning, the 42-year-old entertainer put her views that she is thinking that it is time to say goodbye to the show as she has other assignments to do. Lopez was there to promote her latest movie Age3: Continental Drift – The Squeakquel: Ghost Protocol and when Guthrie asked if she would be back for Season 12, Lopez replied in the aforesaid manner.

Jennifer Lopez further added that she has signed on the “American Idol” for one year period but ended up doing the show for about two years and for now she is in a dilemma to continue or remain in this show or not. She loves the show so much and had enjoyed doing the show. The whole process of the show has fascinated her and it is quiet a touch decision to leave the show and it is a heart breaking decision if she has to go. Lopez did not give the exact reason about why she most likely would not return.

However, Lopez just hinted that she wanted to get back to other aspects of her life whether it is family, career or for her boyfriend Casper Smart.  However, it is not the first time that Jennifer Lopez made her desire to leave “American Idol” publicly in a show. Last year also in an interview with the BBC’s Radio 1 she was in two minds about returning to Season 11 only to get back to the show after signing a contract that may be worth $20 million with Fox Broadcasting Network according to some informed sources.

Since May this year, Jennifer Lopez has been dropping hints that she is ready to leave her place by the side of fellow judges Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler after two seasons.   Speculations are now ripe about who will replace her and any other existing judges for the next season that starts in September. As per the reports, some of the names being considered for “American Idol” show as a replacement include former “American Idol” runner up – Adam Lambert and “Part of Me” singer Katy Perry.
