So the rumors ARE true…
At least partially!
Jennifer Lopez WILL return to American Idol this season, but NOT as a replacement for Mariah Carey in a last-ditch effort to boost ratings.
Instead, the former singing competition judge will grace the American Idol stage to PERFORM during the show's two-part finale!
No news yet as to which night the Dance, Again mover and shaker will dazzle audiences with her sexy self OR what tune she'll sing…
But we're HOPING she'll get down to one of her soon-to-be released tunes, especially since Jenny from the Block's new single Live It Up ft. Pitbull drops May 7th and the finale airs May 15 and 16!
Although wouldn't Jen's performance be a subtle slap-in-the-face to Mariah who ALSO has a new single coming out next week?
What a major case of stolen thunder!
