Jennifer Lopez Plays Coy When Asked About Returning to American Idol

jlo-extra

Rumors about Mariah Carey being ousted from American Idol have set tongues wagging and former Idol judge Jennifer Lopez is said to be on tap to replace Mariah. But if she’s in negotiations, she’s not telling … yet.

While on the red carpet for an event in Las Vegas, Extra asked Jennifer about the rumors swirling about her replacing Mariah on Idol.

“I don’t have much to say about that right now,” J.Lo said with a laugh.

When pressed on if she would return if given the opportunity next year, she said, “I don’t know. I don’t know. It’s too far off to say right now.”

Welp. Mimi, your seat is in danger, girl.

Truth be told, I don’t think Jennifer should come back to Idol. The show’s on the decline and its ratings are dropping like houseflies. She’d be better off hanging out with the crew over at The Voice.
