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.

Jennifer Lopez has no real talent - she's their token hispanic female for the panel. I was excited to watch Steven Tyler, at least he has earned the right to be there with 40 years in show business to his credit, but now that they have added her, I'm not so sure I will watch.

BOO!!!! I can't stand her and will certainly not watch this show again if she is on it. Granted I do only watch the try outs.

Pull the plug, this show is DOA. Lopez is like nails on a chalkboard to most people. No talent hack that was created by a record label.

Yep! Final nail in the coffin for the show. Who wants to watch a washed up has-been that doesn't get it? It's time for J-LO to GO-GO.

That. . . or no more Idol for me.
