American Idol made it official today and announced Jennifer Lopez as one of the new judges for the tenth season!

La Lopez was announced after the lead singer of Aerosmith Steven Tyler as the final judge to complete the panel alongside longtime judge Randy Jackson. She appeared on stage in a jumpsuit and tumbling long tresses to the delight of the thousands of fans watching the live streaming announcement online.

When Ryan Seacrest asked her what she was most looking forward to in her new gig as an American Idol judge, Lopez replied, "I’m looking for the next Michael Jackson! Like Randy said, we're really looking for the best American Idol ever!"

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
