Jennifer Lopez

'American Idol' Deal

Imminent

9/2/2010 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer Lopez is in the final stages of negotiations with "American Idol" -- and we're told it's all but a done deal and Jennifer will be the last critical link in the chain.

Sources connected to the negotiations tell TMZ ... contrary to some news reports ... there has been no drama and no diva demands.  As one source puts it, "It's been typical negotiating."

We're told ... absent a last-minute snag (which is highly unlikely) ... the deal could be inked as early as next week.

"Idol" sources say producers believe Jennifer is the key to re-energizing the show.

I absolutely refuse buy or watch anything to do with Jennifer Lopez. She does not care about animals being skinned alive for her profits!

YES! I WILL still watch....it will be hilarious! She is so full of crap and herself. She is NO expert, It will be entertaining to watch her sit there week after week...with... weave after weave...and...enormous amounts of make-up plastered to her face....and...prance around like she is still 20 years old....and listen to that fake he he he laugh she has going on...and...don't forget.....that FROG looking husband will be lurking around somewhere.......probably nailing one of the contestants.It will be a Puerto Rican soap opeara!!!!!

While Steven Tyler is a classic rock god from Aerosmith, Lopez is B lister. She didn't have many hit songs and was never in a hit movie. Expect more of the same bohemian dreck AI talent.

I cannot believe people still watch Idol. It's the world's biggest karaoke contest. Viewers are fed commercials, product placement and fillers week after week, actual performances combined prob take up no more than 20 min an episode.

The judges decide who sings the best you agree and pay for text messages? Make sure you run out and buy all the CD's too.

Hypnotic consumerism wrapped up in a tv show.

I will not watch the show at all if she is put in their as a so called "Judge", and I say that very lightly too! Cannot stand this bitch whatsoever; never have & will never ever in the future. She is beyond obnoxious..

I think they would be better off giving a past few contestants or winners of American Idol the chance to be the judges

All you guys are haters, wish to have a little bit of her talent...and brain for bussines. Jennifer is a good dancer, actress and maybe she don't have a great voice but she do it nice and most important she knows what is needed to succeed!
