American Idol to Replace Jennifer Lopez With Shania Twain or Shakira?

Jennifer Lopez is still uncertain about returning to American Idol for the next season but she better decide quickly! In case she decides not to come back, show producers have already started to look for her replacement. Currently, Shania Twain and Shakira are among the names being bandied about.

An inside source says, "Right now the star of American Idol is Steven Tyler. Everyone thought after Simon announced he was leaving that [Lopez] would fill the void. How wrong were they? It's all about Steven, who's already signed on for season 11.” Looks like Jen better think twice before demanding Simon Cowell’s $35 million American Idol paycheck.

A music exec adds that Jennifer Lopez’s contributions to the show were minimal. “Idol has resurrected her much-stalled music career. Likewise, 'Idol' didn't fall apart when Simon left and Jennifer has to get some of the credit for that. But let's also remember the show didn't increase in ratings and that is also thanks to J.Lo."

Wow, them’s fighting words! But we will agree with Pop Eater on on one thing -- Jennifer needs to make her mind up quick!
