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.

If she becomes a judge I will stop watching the show altogether. She has no talent whatsoever, how can she "judge" other people? On top of being dump, she is a very bad actress and a lousy signer, all she has are her looks. Plus she thinks so much of herself like she is some kind of princess...

"JLo has no talent ... she's a diva ... shes this, shes that". These things may or may not be true. One thing is for sure - the girl knows how to make some money and she should be able to spot a star in the making considering that she's got a successful music career, acting career, designer, perfumer ... I mean what she does she does well! The million$ are proof of that $$$

Her ex- boyfriend Diddy should get the job because he did well with Making the Band!

Jennifer Lopez thinks she is a diva on a stick...the fact is Jennifer Lopez is a lost cause with no talent and a whole lotta need for money... I will NOT be watching AI anymore and I do NOT miss it.
