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.
