J-Lo to join American Idol

Actress is close to sealing a deal with the show

Jennifer Lopez is in the final stages of negotiations to serve as a judge on the upcoming season of American Idol, according to the website TMZ. The report of a J-Lo deal comes with rumours that Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, 62, is another top choice for the show’s 10th season. Also, contrary to earlier reports, a source told TMZ that the diva did not overwhelm Fox executives with drama and demands. Instead, the Idol source said, “It’s been typical negotiating.”
