Jennifer Lopez Signs 1-Year Idol Deal


According to People, the papers have been signed — Jennifer Lopez will be a judge on American Idol, bringing to the show the musical expertise that's served her own singing career so well these past few years. Her deal is for "a little more than $12 million" and, interestingly, is only for one year (hope's not lost, Kara DioGuardi fans!). Lopez is expected to begin judging auditions next week. [People]
