Nigel Lythgoe Really Wants J. Lo Back For More Idol!

| Filed under: Music MinuteAmerican IdolJennifer LopezEllen DeGeneresReality TV


Not so fast, Jennifer Lopez!

The American Idol head honchos aren't going to let you go that easily!

While the singer recently told Ellen DeGeneres that she's unsure if she'll be returning for a third season of the reality competition, executive producer Nigel Lythgoe recently revealed that he is not too keen on the prospect of replacing her!

He explains:

"We want her back. I want her back. I know how much she loves doing the show and how much she cares for the kids. It's a business. She has to weigh everything. I know she's gotten lots of offers to do movies and other things."

Well, that certainly may be true, but something is telling us that gurlfriend may just want to remind producers what an asset she has become to the show, so that they may throw a more Britney Spears for X Factor-esque salary offer her way!

Either way, we're sure we'll know whether or not she'll be jumping shark sooner or later!

What do U think?? Do U like J. Lo as an American Idol judge??

    In my opinion J lo is whats holding American Idol together and the reason why the show didn't fail after Simon Cowel left. The girl is very carismatic and always has the best advice to give the contestants. Her celebrity status is bigger than anyone's on the show, and she is also very beautiful and elegant. That believe it or not gets a lot of viewers to tune in every week. I'm scared for the future of the show if J Lo leaves, unless they get some one like Beyonce or Madonna, then they'll be fine.

    Remember when Ellen was on the show? It seems weird to think about now! That was an awkward season. Jlo definitely did better than Ellen
