Everything You Need To Know About The Recent American Idol News

After recently reporting about possible judge hopefuls in case one or more of the Idol judges would not be returning for the 12th season, both Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez have went on the record to announce that they would not be returning for the upcoming season. On the 12th, Tyler made it official via a Fox press release that he won’t be back because he wants to focus on Aerosmith. In the statement, Tyler said; “Idol was over-the-top fun, and I loved every minute of it…Now it’s time to bring Rock Back.” Less than 24 hours later, Lopez also announced via Ryan Seacrest’s morning radio show that she would also not be returning. “I honestly feel the time has come that I have to get back to doing the other things that you do, and you have to pay attention to that, too,” she says. “I could keep doing Idol for the rest of my life, but that would be giving up a bunch of other things. I feel like we had an amazing run.” No news on whether or not original judge since season 1 Randy Jackson would still remain on the show but some top choices for replacements for Tyler and Lopez include Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus, and Adam Lambert.
