Despite all the buzz and talk, it seems now J.Lo is a no go for American Idol Season 10.

According to sources close to the situation say Jennifer Lopez was very close to securing a spot as a permanent judge on the popular show but “her demands got out of hand, Fox had enough” and the deal fell apart.

Talk remains that Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler may still fill one of the judge slots and now Idol producers are revisiting earlier celeb picks they were originally considering. There’s also a possibility they will go back to the three judge format instead of their supersize four person show panel.—Ronke Idowu Reeves
