New ‘Idol’ Judges Speak, Officially, for the First Time: Lopez Says She’s Looking for the Next Michael Jackson; Steven Tyler Wants More Rock ‘n’ Roll on the Show

Today, Fox had a big press event at the Los Angeles Forum to announce the three judges for the upcoming season of "American Idol," and it was just who we thought were going to be judges — Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson.

Lopez declared that she was looking for the next Michael Jackson, according to People.com. Tyler described the new gig this way: "[It] feels like the perfect feathered nest. It’s being a part of something much bigger than yourself. I want to bring some rock to this roller coaster," the article said. 

Fox also confirmed that legendary record exec Jimmy Iovine–co-founder of Beats Audio and chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records–will be a part of the show, serving as in-house mentor, B&C reported.


  1. This show is going to really suck this year!

  2. I have to agree. This doesn’t look like a direction that will bring back the viewers that were lost last year. Two Peacocks who will be stealing the spotlight from the contestants is not what the show needed. And do believe either of these two will be hard hiting critics?

  3. They’ll make great judges

  4. No great opera plot can be rational, for people do not sing when they are feeling rational.

  5. Love the blog here. Nice colors. I am definitely staying tuned to this one. Hope to see more.
