"American Idol" executive producer Nigel Lythgoe says Jennifer Lopez will be back for another season of "Idol," but Fox hasn't made an official announcement.
With all due respect to Jenny from the Block, I doubt too many "Idol" fans are waiting in suspense for formal confirmation of her return.
At this point, they could have replaced the entire judges' panel without affecting my opinion of "Idol."
After 10 seasons of watching the show, I've become decreasingly invested in the judges' opinions. There's really only so much they can say.
I now believe that regardless of the judges' qualifications, they'll eventually resort to airy critiques that overuse "beautiful."
