Jennifer Lopez Says She Won't Return as 'Idol' Judge
Singer follows Steven Tyler in leaving Fox reality show
By Andrea Morabito -- Broadcasting & Cable, 7/13/2012 12:34:37 PMSteven Tyler announced he was leaving American Idol, fellow judge Jennifer Lopez said she also would not return to the Fox reality show for its 12th season.
Lopez made the announcement on Ryan Seacrest's radio show Friday morning.
"I honestly feel like just the time has come," she told Seacrest, who is also the host of Idol. "I have to get back to doing the other things that I do that I've put on hold because I love Idol so much."
Lopez did leave the door open for occasional appearances on Idol, just not the full-time judging gig, saying, "I feel like no matter what you guys need, I'm always going to be here. I just don't know that I can be there every single day, all the time the way we've been doing the past two years."
A spokesperson for Fox had no comment.
WOW is this girl full of herself...she feels she needs to be there? Who is she kidding here? She helped ratings go into a freefall along with Tyler, who added nothing to the show to begin with and maybe it's time to oust Seacrest as well. This show needs to attain people who know what they're doing and not just be there for the sake of collecting a paycheck. If they can't follow this formula, then maybe FOX needs to cancel this show next year.
