lopez headed to ‘idol’?
Former “In Living Color” dancer Jennifer
Lopez is poised to return to television — this time as a judge on “American Idol.”
The singer-dancer-actor was close to signing a deal to join Fox TV’s hit singing contest, a person familiar with the negotiations said. The person, who was not authorized to comment publicly, spoke on condition of anonymity.
The “American Idol” opening for Lopez comes with comedian-talk show host Ellen DeGeneres’ departure from the show.
