American Idol just confirmed the worst kept secret in Hollywood.

Jennifer Lopez will be back on the judges' panel for the Fox reality competition show's season 13, joining new judge Harry Connick Jr. and alum Keith Urban, Fox announced Tuesday, according to CBS.

Ryan Seacrest will also be back for his hosting gig, as will Randy Jackson, who will leave the judges' table to replace Jimmy Iovine as the in-house mentor.

"#IDOL2014TheRemix ...see ya soon," J. Lo tweeted Tuesday morning, later posting a photo of Harry while they were on set together for their first day on the job.

A couple of weeks ago, J. Lo's boyfriend, Casper Smart, accidentally broke the news to E! News, telling the network she would be returning to the show before it was ever confirmed.

American Idol's season 13 kicks off Jan. 14 on Fox.
