While Jennifer Lopez hems and haws about coming back for another season of “American Idol,” Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson are good to go, according to EW.com.
Tyler would be working his second year and hopefully, he’ll drop the adjective “beautiful.” And maybe Randy, who has been there since day one in 2002, might give up the “in it to win it” line.
But don’t count on it.
Host Ryan Seacrest has signed on as well.
It’s not clear how much time Lopez has before she has to make a final call. My guess is August. I’m also sure “Idol” is seeking a back-up female judge in case Lopez moves on.
And it sounds like Nigel Lythgoe, widely credited for helping resurrect “Idol” this year, will return, too.
