Jennifer Lopez may be vacating her seat at the judges' table on "American Idol," according to E! News. No formal announcement has been made.
If J.Lo walks, she'll be leaving a hefty salary on the table. She was reportedly paid $20 million for her second season on "Idol." Yesterday, Forbes ranked her No. 1 on the Celebrity 100 list and credited "Idol" with revitalizing her career.
This summer, Lopez will embark on a 20-city tour with Enrique Iglesias and Wisin & Yandel, which Rolling Stone reports will conflict with "Idol" auditions and pre-taping. The tour stops at TD Garden on July 25.
Would you be glad to see J.Lo go? If she does leave, who should replace her on the show?
