Jennifer Lopez has reportedly replaced Ellen Degeneres as a judge on the widely popular television show ‘American Idol’ (July 29). Degeneres announced Thursday she was leaving after one year as judge. Simon Cowell left last year after 9 seasons.
â€œA couple months ago, I let Fox and the â€˜American Idolâ€™ producers know that this didnâ€™t feel like the right fit for me,â€ DeGeneres said in a statement, while she â€œloved discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings.â€
J Lo was close to signing a deal to join Fox TVâ€™s hit singing contest, a person familiar with the negotiations said late Thursday. Personally, I think Lopez is the perfect fit for this position…what you think?
