As predicted, American Idol’s trio of existing judges will all be coming back for the show’s 14th season. Fox announced Tuesday that Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr. will return to the judges’ bench, along with host Ryan Seacrest. “I am thrilled our consummate host, Mr. Ryan Seacrest, is returning for Season 14, together with Jennifer, Harry and Keith,” said creator and EP Simon Fuller. “Their interaction, warmth and experience made them an absolute joy to watch. I can’t wait to see their evolution together continue next season.” Fans of the status quo, rejoice.
