Jennifer Lopez fans, rejoice! Seems the diva will be returning to American Idol for season 13. Lopez had served as a judge for two previous seasons in 2011 and 2012. 

Lopez will be joining Keith Urban on the panel, who has already been confirmed. When asked by E! News whether Lopez would be returning to Idol, Lopez's boyfriend Casper Smart responded with a simple, "Yes." 

"Returning to American Idol makes sense for Jennifer this season," a source tells E!, "as the show's schedule will allow her to focus on new film and TV projects at the same time. And, of course, her twins are starting school this year and she will have time for her family."

Fox has yet to comment and a third judge has yet to be announced. Season 13 auditions are already underway.
