After last year's train wreck of a public feud between Mariah Carey & Nicki Minaj, it appears the Fox network is trying to get Jenny from the block back in the judging seat of their long running show American Idol season 13.

Jennifer Lopez is rumored to be returning to American Idol next season. Any truth to these rumors? I heard rumors of Jennifer Hudson being a judge next season & it was announced this week that Kanye West was offered the job but turned it down to not become mainstreamed & stay true to his hip hop roots.  (news flash Kanye, hip hop is so mainstream now anyway).

JLO received $20 million for the 2011 season & served as a judge for 2 seasons of the hit FOX show. In my opinion, she was the best, most empathetic & sincere judge of all.  And there have been many.

From the crude, rude, crass Simon Cowell (who I loved!), to the weird Paula Abdul, boring Randy Jackson, knowledgeable Kara Dio Guardi, out of place comedian Ellen DeGeneres, wacko Steven Tyler, level headed sexy Keith Urban, diva Mariah Carey, & controversial Nicki Minaj, Idol has had a lot of change in the judging panel.

I personally loved Jennifer Lopez on the show, plus she is the epitome of style.

Pay her Idol! Bring Jenny back to the block please! I will even tolerate another performance with her boy toy Casper Smart!
