Jennifer Lopez quits American Idol

Jennifer Lopez has quit the American Idol judging panel

Jennifer Lopez is the second judge in two days to say she's leaving American Idol.

Her representative, Mark Young, said that J Lo is ending her time on television's most popular show after two years.

The news comes just a day after Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler announced his departure.

That means the show's judging panel is down to one, Randy Jackson, and there are reports that he may take a different role on the program moving forward.

Fox's American Idol has been TV's most popular program for nearly a decade. But it slumped severely in the ratings last season, and producers are looking for a way to shake things up.

Mariah Carey is rumoured to be in talks to join the judging panel.
