Pinch our pecs and call us Wilma, because we must be dreaming!!
According to sources close to the situation, Jennifer Lopez is "very close to signing a deal with Fox to return to American Idol next season."
Holy shiitake mushrooms, that would be AH-Mazing!!!
"Both Fox and Jennifer are very happy about this and want it to happen very much."
The source revealed:
"Jennifer never had discussions with NBC about being a judge. She was approached by NBC about performing but had to turn it down because of scheduling conflicts."
So then why did Jennifer leave in the first place?
The source explained:
"She couldn't return last year because she had committed to a world tour. But now that the tour is over, she has more time to raise her family, do movies and pursue television projects."
Ah, now we understand!
Hooray! The Queen lives!! Probably!!!
