New American Idol Judges Finally Confirmed

Surprise! The American Idol judges are exactly who you already knew they would be! Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, and Randy Jackson will hold down the judges' table for season ten, which starts in January. Jimmy Iovine, the chairman of Interscope Records, who has produced everyone from U2 to Eminem, will also be on hand to help the contestants as an "in-house mentor." During the press conference announcing what you already knew, Lopez said she was "looking for the next Michael Jackson," so expect to see some sequined gloves at try outs.
