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.

JLo is just very mediocre, whether it's her singing or acting. I won't watch AI if she is on. Plus she wears fur and that makes her ugy.

OK -- I love J-Lo! F*ck all u haters. Paula had no vocal talent ,but you all love her. Lo is hot and one of the most down to earth person's in the industry.

How can Jennifer Lopez be the 'key' to re-energizing the show? Her career (if you can call it that at this point) is in complete tatters - no one sees her movies or buys her albums/singles. Most people think she is a bitch and they are probably right.

Lopez is boring and nothing special. Bad choice. Watch the ratings tank. Mark my words. I stand by them.

Yawn. Is this show still on? It's well past its prime, and nothing and nobody is going to revive it.

Will not watch the show - it will not be the same without Simon! Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler - no thanks, I'll pass what I think will be the final season of Idol.

So I see they are gong the Paula Abdul route again. A dancer that can't sing, but sucked her way to a record deal.
