Jennifer Lopez & Will.i.am To Join Keith Urban As Next Season’s ‘American Idol’ Judges: Report

0de6259ee19ea04d8c81c5f5cb924db3 Jennifer Lopez & Will.i.am To Join Keith Urban As Next Season’s ‘American Idol’ Judges: Report

Yahoo! is reporting that will.i.am and Jennifer Lopez are joining American Idol as judges for season 13. FOX earlier Thursday (August 1) confirmed that Keith Urban would be the only season 12 judge returning. Shortly after, the executive producer of Yahoo!’s omg Insider! (that’s a lot of exclamation points!) tweeted that a “very inside” source confirmed that JLo and Will would join Urban on the judging panel.

(Perhaps somebody leaked the news to distract from that pesky lawsuit?)

Keep in mind, though, that earlier this year, we saw reports that Jennifer Hudson had finalized her Idol deal and that Kelly Clarkson and Adam Lambert were also in the running. Then the show’s EPs were canned, and it looks like the network went back to the drawing board and scrapped the Idol alumni idea.

Lopez was the latest to be thrown into the mix: there were rumors that she would return to the judges’ table ever since it was announced she would be performing on the season 12 finale. As for will.i.am, he has appeared on the show numerous times as a mentor, so a judging gig would be a natural transition.

Got all that? Yeah. Until FOX trots out those “here are the judges together” promo pics, we’re not putting too much stock into these reports.
