Jennifer Lopez Returns To American Idol!


Great news, JLo fans!

Jennifer Lopez will return to the judging table for the fourteenth season of American Idol. Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. will also be back at their seats, as will host Ryan Seacrest. 

David Hill, senior vice president of 21st Century Fox, praised the returning talent. "Jennifer, Keith, Harry and Ryan are the very best in the business at what they do, and I'm thrilled that they are returning to American Idol for another season," he said in a statement. "Each brings unique qualities and expertise to the team, but they all share the same passion for helping undiscovered singers achieve the American dream."

E! reports that American Idol will likely see some changes when it premieres in January 2015. While the audition phrase will remain in a two-night format, the singing competition will likely be downsized to one episode per week during the live shows.
