Her representative, Mark Young, said Friday that Lopez is ending her time on television’s most popular show after two years. Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler said the same thing on Thursday.
Lopez broke the news to “Idol” host Ryan Seacrest on his radio show.
“I really was dreading this phone call with you,” she told him. “I honestly feel like the time has come that I have to get back to doing the other things that I do that I’ve put kind of on hold because I love ‘Idol’ so much.”
Boy oh boy, that didn’t take long! Ellen said she didn’t feel is was the right fit for her. She didn’t like hurting people’s feelings and her schedule became more hectic etc…. Wonder if Simon leaving had anything to do with it? I will be hard pressed to watch anymore unless something magical happens. Could it also have something to do with Ellen starting her own record label???
Nigel Lythgoe, who is awesome IMHO, is being wooed to come back. If you watch So You Think You Can Dance, Nigel is a great judge. He won’t blow smoke up your dress but he can be very complimentary, when warranted etc… I would definitely tune in if Nigel came back!
Randy “you’re pitchy dawg” Jackson is still under contract…ugh…. Kara is year-to-year but she is ready for Season 10….don’t like her at all. No Simon and no Ellen. That sucks for viewers.
