REPORT: American Idol Tried to Replace Mariah Carey with Jennifer Lopez

The Hollywood Reporter has come out to say that Jennifer Lopez may be coming back to American Idol—to replace Mariah Carey! Their sources say that Idol producers, along with Fox executives, began negotiations with J. Lo, who was a fan-favorite judge during seasons 10 and 11, to rejoin the show. However, when Mariah got wind of it, she threatened to sue! THR also went on to report that producers want to bring Jennifer back for the season finale next month regardless, and that no judge’s job on the panel (not even Randy’s) is safe!
Reps for Fox and Mariah both denied THR's report. Show producer Nigel Lythgoe told THR: "I have not been included in any conversation regarding replacing Mariah with Jen this season."

A show source also tells THR that possible replacements include a music professional, "not necessarily a star" to join the panel next year (THANK YOU!).

These are all reports, but who knows what’s going to happen with AI. This is why I think that this show should have been canceled quite a few seasons ago. When your focus is on who’s on the judging panel instead of who’s singing on stage, there’s a problem. But whatever. FOX will keep this show going until the last wheel falls off, it looks like.

Do you think that Mariah will be replaced, either with Jennifer or someone else? Is it time for the whole show to end?
