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.

J-Low Blow on Idol. Not watching. She is desperate for cash apparently. Kara Dioguardi is better than J-No. Her husband is fugly besides. (Reading this JLo? You suck!)

What's the sense of watching this show anymore. Seems like every year they pick a winner and second and third place always are the ones with huge albums that come out and we never hear from the winners again. Anyone remember the name of the girl that won over Chris Doherty? I'm still waiting for her to have a hit.

I wonder how often she will stand up and turn around for the cameras while the contestants are singing.

No way, no one can even stand Jennifer Lopez anymore, and 12 million dollars for one year? Why doesnt AI go and feed a 3rd world country like the UNITED STATES hungary, poor, homeless???

I havent watched it in two years now with Paula gone.

Well this will kill the AI franchise, and frees up a lot of time for me each week not having to waste my time watching AI any longer. She is a no talented waste, that dated people to write music for her, and is one of the worst actresses ever and nothing more than Hollywoods version of an affirmative action program. Sure makes you long for the days of Paula, and even Cara. Well maybe she can coach the kids on performing the famous Queen song, "Another One Bites The Dust", because Little Miss Mambo will be the end of AI

Good God, stop the insanity! $12 million for WHAT??? No wonder the economy is so out of whack. Salaries of millions for entertainers and sports players. Something is wrong with this picture...makes me sick.
