Jennifer Lopez is expected to announce a return to American Idol this week, sources tell the Associated Press. According to the report, Lopez, who was a judge during seasons 10 and 11, decided to return to the show because its schedule allowed her to spend more time with her children, Max and Emme. If confirmed, she’ll join the already cast Keith Urban – and possibly record producer DJ Luke, as well – when Idol returns for a thirteenth season in January.
Lopez’s return has been the subject of rumors for days. Last week, her boyfriend, Casper Smart, probably accidentally said they were true.
