Jennifer Lopez Quits American Idol

jlo quits american idol

Say whaaat!?!

Out of the blue, Jennifer Lopez has decided to leave American Idol!!

We knew there was some indecision there, but we were hoping she was just waiting for a bigger raise. Unfortunately, it's official…

An insider explains:

There is just too much going on for her right now. She regrets she can't stay on the show. It's been an incredible experience and she is forever grateful that she did it.

As a judge, J.Lo gave many fans and contestants inspiration to keep going. And we know the show is going to miss her A LOT!!

Maybe it has to do with her tour?? This summer, she plans on blowing audiences away with Enrique Iglesias during a 20-city tour of the U.S. and Latin America. Guess the dates just couldn't gel!!

Too bad!! We'll miss her too!!

    This was all in the plan anyway. Her career before idol was fading (just a little) and she used the show to help her get her career back in motion (full speed ahead). If you noticed, once she became a judge, endorsment deals startec coming back in along with a new album and tour. Jennifer did what she had to do to help her get back out there and A.I did that for her. I'm sure she honestly loved the constants and the show, however, Idol was a stepping stoll to the road of her comeback. Now only if she would leave that young thang alone things will be perfect!

    maybe she realized Britney will be pulling in all the ratings so its best to leave idol before the embarrassment or losing to the QUEEN…BRITNEY SPEARS :) )

    Screw J.Lo….how can a singer who can't even hold a note be a judge….get someone good like Beyonce, Jill Scott, Robyn, Jennifer Hudson, Miranda Lambert….anyone….just not J.Lo , I'm so tired of her!

    I like her on the show. She was smart… she used Idol to get her music back out there and is now quitting. I hope they get a good replacement.

    I think she was expecting to come back on top like she was back in the day with a number 1 album and movie out at the same time. All of this was strategically planned and she didn't get the attention she thought she was going to. She was never on Idol to be a judge, it was always about her not the contestants and with her lame Red One song that lacked originality and that just as lame "love to make love to you" song that's just about as creative as those "all sounding the same" hip hop songs on the radio these day that no one is interested in, she quit. She's selfish. I just wish she would retire that slick back high bun circa 1995 hair do she thinks she can still pull of. Get with the 2012 girlfriend.

  14. 14

    Excuse me but she offered NOTHING to the show. All she did was giggle, get goosies and praise the contestants…even when they sucked. She got her career back on track so siyonara… lets see how long it lasts.

  15. 15

    Mariah Carey would be a good replacement for her…a singer that can actually sing.

    I hope they don't pull an X-Factor and go for a big name train wreck (that can't sing, but does have staying power) or a kid that quit her own show because she couldn't the spotlight that only has one hit to her name.

    Please Please Please Please let this be true. Leave now and don't let the door hit your booty on the way out. I miss being able to watch my American Idol. Watching this talentless lipsyncher offer advice on singing, I almost threw up.

    What's this for bullshit talks? It is absolutely not sure she will leave yes or no… Stop spreading rumors and do your work first!

    Re: MIke – Very true, awesome options :)

  19. mlready says – reply to this


    I will now watch American Idol Could not stand Jennifer she acts like a tramp!!!!

  20. Sandy Smith says – reply to this


    She can't even tell the truth that she got fired because of low ratings.That's how honest she is. Anyway how can she be a judge if she can't sing. She's only good in showing her tits and her big ass. And she's going on a tour with Enrique Iglesias.I feel sorry for Enrique.
    She just wants to copy her ex because he's going on a tour with 2 other singers.But the thing is Mark can sing good not like her( trying so hard to be a singer) Get real woman.
