Jennifer Lopez To Rescue American Idol!?! Returning To Replace Quitters Mariah Carey & Nicki Minaj!!

| Filed under: Music MinuteMariah CareyAmerican IdolJennifer LopezNicki Minaj


While other divas like Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj have abandoned ship after American Idol’s season of low ratings, Jennifer Lopez is not phased by the lack of viewers!!!

J.Lo is going against the grain and unlike ALL of the other judges, hopes to return to the Idol judging panel for next season!!

We don’t see how the producers of this flailing show could refuse!

A source reportedly has said:

“J.LO’s manager, Benny Medina, was in talks with FOX even before Mariah and Nicki announced their departures last week. Benny told FOX that she does indeed want to return. They’re talking. Negotiations are in their infant stages, but they’re underway to get her back to the judges’ table.”

We had heard rumors that Idol executives had wanted to replace Mariah Carey with Jenny Lopez, which may have prompted Mariah to skip the standing ovation J.Lo received for her AI performance with Pitbull.

Now it’s sounding more and more like those rumors might have been true!!

Good thing Mariah had a chance to quit before being replaced with Nicki Minaj’s bestie, LOLz!!

    It's such a boring show - it became ghetto, they need to cancel it. JLo isn't going to save it. Move on people, the XFactor is much better anyway.

    I don't think anyone can rescue idol. Idols concept need to change.

    Even though the ratings sucked this year it is still one of the most watched shows on Fox. It isn't going anywhere. X-Factor is however better.

    I really dont believe mariah was the problem for the show. i really truly believe it was Nicki that made ratings drop. How can a real true artist like Mariah not be good for the show? she is a song writer prodcer and has been making music for years. i just DO NOT understand how Jlo can help. she has absoutley no singing talent whats so ever. NONE. how can she coach the conestants when the girl cant sing herself? omg i just do not understand. they should have just left mariah drop nicki and see how the ratings go from there. i really honeslty dont belive mariah had anything to do with the rating dropping. man i dont get it. i will never understand

    You know what would save this show? Canceling it.

    I Love J-Lo, she amazing/talented/ beautiful and my imaginary gf but NOTHING and NO ONE can save Idol. Producers pls let it go right now; its ending is here. Time for them to come up with a different show and concept and make their millions doing what they do best!

    SORRY~ J LO also sucked on AI. If AI wants to get there rating back, bring back Simon. Forget these celebs. JLO can't sing!

    The show's decline started with JLo. Viewers were turned off when she shamelessly used the show to promote herself and all her sorry songs and movies.

    The desperate and previously fired JLOW wants to return to Idol because for her, this was a career highlight! She shamelessly got the promo she wanted and a fat paycheck so it makes sense how underhanded and tacky she has been to jock for a vacant spot….
    REMEMBER it was jlow who called AI and not the other way around!!
    If she does return i hope she isnt allowed to be the only female judge, just like Mariah. she deserves a barracuda 4th judge to banter with….AMANDA BYNES ANYONE?!

  14. Anthony says – reply to this


    Jennifer Lopez JLO is soooooo overrated as a singer or actress. I think she is a DANCER and that's all!!!! She can't even SAVE her own ACTING career OR her Flopping SINGING "career"!! She absolutely sucked as a judge and the ratings were sliding when she was on ,so how can she save it??? Mariah warned them that a 4 judge format wouldn't work (it didnt in the past) and it didn't. Nikki manj also hepl pull the ratings down even lower with her unprofessionailism, but Perez loves Nikki!!!

    Re: DLOC – actually love if you really look up sources AI producers wanted JLO after her appearance on AI the season Jordin Sparks won. JLO NEVER had to call them. they WANTED her!

  16. 16

    DUH. IDOL ratings PLUMMETED TWENTY PERCENT with J. Lo on the panel. She was a huge WASTE OF MONEY and her douche "source"/manager Medina is playing Perez like a fiddle. LMAO

  17. Ryan says – reply to this


    The shows ratings dropped because it's getting old, and it's nothing new. J-Lo won't save it, she can't even save her flopping single! Mariah still has good music coming out. J-Lo has entered the reality TV phase of her career. So good for them both

    Perez, you have to get this correct…E! already reported the Mariah DID eventually stand up for JLo at the American Idol performance. They showed the wide angle shot that showed it. She was last to stand…but she did stand…check it out.

  19. Honeywest says – reply to this


    Please J.Lo won't save the show, it's already a disaster as it is. I don't think Mariah Carey was the problem, it was Nicki Minaj and her unprofessionalism that brought the ratings down plus her foul mouth along with it. I think if J.Lo goes on A.I. the ratings will go up to a decent margin but not a whole lot. She can bring in some fashion sense with the clothes she wears and her talent like dancing and singing. The concept needs to change, that will help. Cancelling the show might be a 2nd choice but I don't think so. The only way that will be saved if they bring Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul back, now that will bring the ratings through the roof!

    How is she going to rescue American Idol when it needed rescuing when she was a judge?
