Is Jennifer Lopez Returning to 'American Idol'?
The 44-year-old singer is "very close" to signing a deal with Fox to return as an American Idol judge, People reports.
J. Lo served as a judge for two seasons on the hit show previously and left last season while Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj joined the panel.
"Both Fox and Jennifer are very happy about this and want it to happen very much," a source tells the mag.
Why does she want to be back on the show now? It's all a matter of timing, apparently.
"She couldn't return last year because she had committed to a world tour," the source explains. "But now that the tour is over, she has more time to raise her family, do movies and puruse television projects."
