Good news, “American Idol” fans! Or at least, we think it is. “American Idol” judges Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler have officially signed on for more “Idol” next season. Fox confirms to E! that both judges will be back in their seats for Season 11 of the unstoppable talent competition.
We never doubted that they’d be back, but it’s still good to have official confirmation in the bag. Steven breathed new life into the show, and Randy… well. Randy is Randy, isn’t he? We just hope he comes up with a new catch phrase next year. Everyone’s in it to win it, Randy. It’s a competition.
Of course, that leaves Jennifer Lopez as the sole hold-out from the judge’s table. J.Lo remains coy about her return to the show and hasn’t officially signed on for more yet. She recently told BBC Radio 1, “I had an amazing time doing it and I loved it, but I have a lot of other
things happening, and it’s going to come down to me making a choice of
what I want to do for the next year and we’re not really at the breaking
point of, ‘You have to make a decision right now!’ I’m just really
enjoying the time of just waiting and seeing.”
