New 'American Idol' Judge Is a Blast From the Past

GossipMonger 10

american idolDid you love Jennifer Lopez when she was on American Idol? Good news for you then -- the singer and mother of two will likely be a judge on the 13th season of the show. Well, so says boyfriend Casper Smart, anyway.

Fox has confirmed American Idol XIII will begin airing in January 2014, and auditions were held at the Clinton Presidential Library in Arkansas this weekend. But at this moment, Keith Urban is the only judge the network has confirmed will return, along with host Ryan Seacrest. They've been mum on Lopez.

Nice job, Casper! Looks like you spilled the beans, buddy!

Lopez has been through two seasons of Idol so far, so she's more or less a veteran, especially with true veteran Randy Jackson departing from the show. And with twins Max and Emme starting kindergarten this fall, she'll certainly have more time on her hands for her career.

Are you looking forward to J-Lo's return to American Idol? Who is your favorite judge?

I am happy that Nikki will be gone. She was waaaay too much drama. I loved Jennifer when she was on Idol, so if she's back, that's a big plus for me!love you sign

As long as Minaj is gone then I might watch. AI has went downhill IMO and bringing Nikki Minaj on was the end of the road for me.
