Nigel Lythgoe may be on the verge of returning to American Idol.

According to a person close to the show, the So You Think You Can Dance judge is in talks to come back to the Fox show next season in the producing role he left two years ago.

The person said Nigel would return as a member of the Idol executive producing team to represent CKx Inc, the holding company of 19 Entertainment, co-producer of American Idol.

Fox declined comment on Nigel's possible return or whether his judging role on So You Think You Can Dance, which airs on Fox, would be affected. Nigel is co-creator and an executive producer of the dance contest.

The new season of Idol will be without Simon Cowell, who left the judging panel to concentrate on the US version of The X Factor.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Your forceful personality makes people sit up and take notice of you. This is a great time to show off your expert knowledge. Demonstrating a command for facts and figures will result in a teaching or media position. Make sure you don't impose this air of authority at home. Your family won't appreciate being ordered around. You may be a superstar in intellectual circles, but you're just another relative on the domestic front. Don't bristle at your loved ones' irreverence. It's good for your ego.More
