Hold Up! Is Shakira Replacing J.Lo On American Idol?

| Filed under: ShakiraAmerican IdolJennifer Lopez


Nah! Just another one of those fun loving rumors peeps like to get started!

The latest gossip to come out of Idol territory is that Jennifer Lopez isn't interested in returning to the show for a second season and that producers are looking for someone equally as hot and talented to replace her. While we have no idea if that is true, we can report from a well placed source that the rumor Shakira is in the running for J.Lo's spot is definitely FALSE.

In their words, the story is "not true at all."

And now, we're mildly disappointed! Though we kind of hope Jennifer sticks with it another year, Shakira, Shakira would be a FINE substitute! We know we'd tune in every week just to hear her golden Latina voice throw some truth on some singing hopefuls. That'd be amazing!!!

But if not Shakira, then who? Who will replace Jen if she packs up and books it out of Idol land???

    J-LO has signed to 4 movies. I think it is save to say she won't be coming back.

    That has to be the worst picture ever of Shakira lol She is a lot prettier than that.

    I stopped watching AI quite a while ago. They don't let the singers sing a full song and it is more about the judges than the talent.

    Can't stand Lopez.

    Shakira is a horrible singer. You can't even understand her half the time. Also, maybe AI should call it quits… it's getting repetitive and boring and the only thing keeping this show running is the judges, or for now, 'What will J.Lo do?" Who Cares what she does, obviously she just needed attention so she makes a cd, agrees to idol, then leaves for movies… how can celebrities be so greedy for fame and money. Do they not get enough attention? Pathetic.

    not saying shaki is mariah but even you, miss perez are better than jlow as a judge! Shaki IS AT LEAST A REAL LATIN ARTIST not like jl who abuses the latina role..shes american..not latina! so yeah it would be nice to see a real latin ARTIST who didnt fuck her way into the music/movie scene coach the idol hopefuls

    Seriously, Shakira???? Is AI so desperate or what???? I didn't watch AI for some years. I'm not a fan of J.Lo either. I'm glad to hear that J.Lo won't be on AI as a judge anymore. I'm so tired to see her singing with her nasally voice. Especially when I heard that her husband was on AI, come on this is not a Lopez family show. If she would still be on AI as a judge I'm afraid that She, her skinny, sleepy eyes husband, her twins and her mother (Mrs. Lopez) will be on stage singing together.

    Urg, people shakira is an amazing singer. just listen to "que me quedes tu" or "la despedida" and you will agree. anyway, i guess that's a matter of taste, but you absolutely cannot say she's an objectively a bad singer who is unfit to give singing advice b/c what it really comes down to is whether you like her style. that being said, i'm glad she wont be a judge. it seems like such a washed up thing to do and shakira still has a long career ahead of her, i hope. but i was kind of looking forward to watching her on tv every week…
