Jennifer Lopez

Is a Go On 'Idol'

... for One Year

9/14/2010 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has confirmed ... Jennifer Lopez has signed a 1-year deal with "American Idol" for "a little more than $12 million" -- this according to sources connected with the show.

It's somewhat surprising that the deal is only for one year ... given the nature of the "A.I." franchise.

Nonetheless -- as first reported by Nikki Finke at DeadlineHollywood.com, it is a done deal and Jennifer Lopez is expected to be at the judges' table for auditions next week.

Has it been 100% confirmed that Steven Tyler is the other judge? I know it has been a foregone conclusion for a while but I haven't seen a story saying he signed a contract.

The best part of watching this show for me was Simon. He's gone, and now you're going to replace him with J-Lo & Steven Tyler???? I wasn't goin to watch before ... and I'm certainly not going to watch those 2 judge people. Way to ruin the show Idol!

Do you hear that? It's the sound of Paula Abdul screaming in agony.

I guess the producers made a good choice not to give Paula $5-10 mil for the year. Oh, wait...

Meh. Never cared for this dumb karaoke show.
I seriously don't understand why a rock legend like Steven Tyler would sign up for this awful show. Money, I guess.
