Jennifer Lopez returning to Idol
Jennifer Lopez will definitely be back on the judging panel for the 11th season of American Idol.
The Fox network has made J-Lo's return official, along with her fellow judges, Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler and record producer Randy Jackson. In addition, Fox said that Ryan Seacrest will be back as host.
Singer-actress Jennifer made her debut as a judge on the last series, but in recent weeks, she had publicly been coy about whether she would stay with the hit musical competition.
Any lingering scepticism was dispelled last week by Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe. He declared, unofficially, that Jen would be back while interviewed on Seacrest's radio programme.
American Idol begins its new season on January 22, 2012.
