Lopez, Tyler, Jackson

Encore, Encore!!!

8/10/2011 9:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

American Idol Season 11
"American Idol" Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe is way too smart to play coy with the judges who helped resurrect the show -- Jennifer LopezSteven Tyler and Randy Jackson have all re-signed.

Nigel made the announcement on Ryan Seacrest's radio show this AM, saying, "I am delighted to say that all three judges, along with the brilliant host of 'American Idol' are back for the next season."

The buzz is ... Jennifer got a huge pay bump -- from $12 million last season to $20 mil next season.  Steven Tyler still has a year to go before his contract is up, but we're hearing he got an increase as well.

I'm glad to hear this. I heard Steve is running out of money for his botox lip injections.

Maybe you should say the have all "renewed" or "re-upped". Saying the all "resigned" sounds like they bailed!!!

Shouldn't this be re-signed? After reading this, my first thought was - who will the next three judges be?

Dear TMZ,

I think you meant to write "re-sign" rather than "resign." If they had "resigned" it means they quit the show. The English language is funny.

Steven should be getting at least as much as J.Lo. Sure she's prettier, but people tuned in to see what crazy things he was going to say each night.

I don't think I can take anymore of J.Lo. The btch is a camera ho, and I think she made up the whole "divorce" thing for publicity. How does one avoid running into photos of that anchient btch? She's been around longer than my bunions.

You'd think that 30 years of freaking J.Lo would be enough!

Her AND Reese Witherspoon are ALWAYS chasing after the cameras! You can't go even one day without freaking J.Lo and/or Reese Witherspoon.

And Reese is just plain ugly.

Takes less than GED to work at TMZ. Harvey must have taken the hire the handicapped slogan a little too seriously.

$20M for a fading hasbeen singer to sit on her butt and critique other singers? Where's the justice? Sad.

What next? Madonna critiquing actors?

That is "beautiful, amazing, wonderful, great, sensational,amazing" blah blah blah boring boring boring. I hope they all get a freaking back bone and start critiquing instead of caving and saying everyone is great when they clearly aren't. Who won again?
