American Idol 2012: Will Jennifer Lopez Return Next Season?

It’s a known fact that Jennifer Lopez is a triple threat quadruple, if you count her judging duties on American Idol.

With the show’s finale on the horizon, viewers are probably wondering: Will J.Lo return next season to judge another day?

Jen sat down with Idol host Ryan Seacrest for E!Online on Wednesday to chat about her upcoming tour with Enrique Iglesias, working with boyfriend Casper Smart (who will serve as creative director of the summer tour), and her future plans.

Despite some movie roles she’s been eying, she’s hoping to fit Idol into her jam-packed schedule. “I love the show and it hurts me to think about not doing it,” she told Ryan. “But I’m just taking it kind of day by day. We’ll see.”

Let’s not forget her 4-year-old twins, Emme and Max, with soon-to-be-ex-husband Marc Anthony. Jennifer says when it comes time to decide on Idol and other career plans, ultimately she’ll “just try to make the best decision for my kids.”

And just when we think that having it all isn’t possible, Jennifer goes and proves us wrong!
