Jennifer Lopez will return to American Idol on May 16th to debut her new single, but rumor has it Fox producers have there way the return will be a little more permanent.
According to TMZ she has been asked to return to the show as a judge and take over Mariah Carey’s seat.
The move makes sense considering the show had it’s worst ratings ever last week.
A Fox spokesman has told the entertainment news site that, “This is just another ridiculous “Idol” judge rumor, likely started by talks of Jennifer performing on the finale.”
That may be true, but something will have to be done if American Idol wants to be on the air for another 11 years.
