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.

Steven is really funny but I dont think it's the judges who upped the ratings for the show. Hello, it's about the contestants.

Randy, Lopez and Tyler are full of s---. they have their favorites picked. Randy praze all the Idol contestant by saying their name last night, except Hollie he never said her name. Randy you are a low-life, it about time they kick your ass off of the show. Tyler, if you could scream like a idoit he loves you, and the same goes for Lopez. The word is Lopez may not return to Idol next season, GOOD, take Randy with you. From what I heard last night, I say their was no one in tune except for Hollie, Skylar and the other little girl.
