AMERICAN IDOL:  L-R: Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy jackson on AMERICAN IDOL airing Tuesday, Feb. 28 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. CR: Michael Becker / FOX.

Jennifer Lopez is also officially leaving American Idol. She called Ryan Seacrest's radio show this morning and said that "the time has come" for her to move on from the show. "I have my music and my movies and my this and my that," she said, and that it's time for her to return to her "other responsibilities," including her children. Lopez said she'd be open to being a mentor or occasional guest, but she just can't fit the show in her schedule anymore. Ryan Seacrest might be all we have left, America.
