Jennifer Lopez, will.i.am To Judge ‘American Idol’ Season 13?
After Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson chucked the deuces to American Idol, the show is shaking things up at the judges’ panel again.
Following Thursday’s announcement that country star Keith Urban would stay on board to judge Season 13, Yahoo! reports that Black Eyed Pea will.i.am and former judge Jennifer Lopez are in talks to join.
While on Idol, J.Lo bagged a reported $15 million per season (MC made $3 million more) so manager Benny Medina is “pushing hard to do a deal” that will increase the Latina singer/actress’ pay day.
Meanwhile, will.i.am has been holding down judging duty on the UK version of The Voice for the past two seasons and has yet to decide which singing competition he shall pledge his allegiance to. There is still also no word on the status of his legal duel with Pharrell.
