Jennifer Lopez will return to the American Idol, but not as a judge.
The 43-year-old former American Idol judge will bring her iconic booty shaking as she will perform on the American Idol’s finale next month. She will appear on the first or the second night of the two-episode finale which is air on May 15 and 16.
Rumors started circulating last week about Jennifer performing on the show’s finale after it was reported that the producers are trying to lure her back on the show as a judge, by replacing either the current judges, Mariah Carey or Nicki Minaj.
E! News reported citing a source that there will be some changes for the judging panel for the show’s next season. Fox believed that the show’s rating would go up if they brought in Mariah or Nicki, but it didn’t work out for most middle-American viewers.
However, a American Idol rep dismissed the rumors about the changes in the judging panel , saying that this is just another Idol rumor, which most likely started after talks about Jennifer performing on the finale.
