J.Lo's Idol Contract A Done Deal, Gets Huge Payraise!

| Filed under: American IdolJennifer Lopez


We know you've all been waiting on pins and needles to know for sure if Jennifer Lopez will be returning to American Idol for another fantabulous year of judging. Well, fret no longer lovelies as sources have just confirmed that J.Lo is all set to return and she'll be making quite a bit of cheddar for her trouble.

Insiders close to the show reveal that Jenny from the Block as another single year contract almost finalized. J.Lo would get paid "a smidge over" $20 million, according to one of the individuals, which is a pretty hefty pay raise from the $12 million she got last year.

We hear everything is set and ready to go. All Jennifer has to do is sign on the dotted line and it's a done deal.

It's an awful lot of money, power and privilege to say no to. If you do turn this offer down, you better have a damn good reason … like you want to bestow the position to us! Seriously, guys, we'd be happy with one-fourth of that salary! One-tenth even! You can't deny we have as much sass!!!!

    Who cares? Jlo is boring.

    Idol is SO over and boring. The Voice is taking over, Baby!! Love Xtina and Adam Levine!!

    It's amazing how they reward a failed film & singing careerist with a judging position of a contest with singers who will mostly also have failed singing & film careers…

  4. 4

    Don't make me laugh. The voice averages 12 million. Idol averages 25 million.

    She is so divine for this. She is the only reason I watched the show.

    It just isn't right one person making that kind of money when there are starving people everywhere. Self righteous whore.

    Failed singer Are you smoking crack. 64 million records sold. 4 billboard number 1 songs and 11 billboard top 10 hits. 12 dance billboard 1 number 1 hits. 18 top hits in the UK. The only singer to have a number 1 movie and album in the same week. The first singer to have a number 1 mix album to go number 1
    On the floor the biggest selling record of 2011 worldwide with 7.5 million records sold so far. Amassed over 2 billion at the Box Office with 6 number 1 movies.

    Now Justin Bieber's 12 year old fan sit your ass down before speaking shit.

    Guess I won't be watching AGAIN this season…

    No offense to Jennifer but who the hell watches American Idol still? Boring and done with!

  11. 11

    They are totally overpaying her.
    X-Factor is getting ready to CRUSH AI.
    Idol is done.

    I was DONE after 3 seasons of AI. Well, I watched bits and pieces of the 4th.

    It's so weird to me that someone "judge" singers who are better at it than you are. I would 1000% watch Perez over J.Lo

    Re: Queenmab – I agree 100% it's absolutely ridiculous.

    another single year contract, which means this time next year we'll have to put up with more of this shit about will she/won't she re-sign, payraises, outrageous diva demands, etc…

  15. 15

    Share some of that $ with Mark….

    Ah, so this is why she got divorced. When she tried holding out for more money, people started getting sick of her will she/won't she games and there were dozens more qualified people rumored to replace her. To bring back the attention to her, she pulled this divorce shit out of her ass. Poor Marc never had a chance. She hasn't lasted with anyone, she was just waiting for the time when the divorce would be just right. And Bam! she's relevant again, and she has a new contract. I don't care how many albums are sold, this woman has no singing talent. Half the buyers are horny boys and the other half impressionable young girls wondering how to get the ass she has. Talent hasn't made her career, at least not her singing. Or acting. Mostly just her dancing is based on talent. But that's it.

    Re: futuremrslabeouf – well said!!!!!!! u took every word out of my mouth except that she is all surgery/fake… i wont watch this crap….she cant even sing how is she capable of judging…last season was abt her & steven…who even remembers the contestants? she just loves publicity…yawwwn famewhore..i really hope marc comes out swinging against her…

  18. 18

    I don't understand what people see in this hack. She's barely talented, dancing aside. Her voice is terrible.

  19. 19

    huge payraise for doin nothing but cry every 2 seconds? where do i sign up for a gig like that

  20. 20

    I don't believe tha AI producer is that dumb or what??? I didn't watch AI 2011 and definitely I have a legit reason not to watch AI 2012, J.Lo. She is so boring. It's definitely an overpaid judge, for doing nothing but showing off her body and fashion show.
