If you’ve been following American Idol 2014 news lately, you know the rumors surrounding who will be sitting at the judges table when season 13 starts have been all over the map. From the talk of an all-alum panel and a dream team of Justin Bieber-esque celebs to one that would possibly include Keith Urban returning and Kelly Clarkson, there is plenty of grist for the rumor mill.

Jennifer Lopez has also recently compared American Idol to the mafia, saying just when you think you’re out, they drag you back in. Now more inside sources are claiming that the big-bootied, age-defying judge is, indeed, trying to make an Idol return.

The latest rumor claims Jennifer is looking for something that will allow her to do both working and mothering.

"Idol allowed her to do that," another insider explained. "The twins will enter kindergarten in the fall and stability is important for them and JLo at this time.”

Jennifer’s manager, Benny Medina, is apparently the one trying to do her bidding for her. And, as this latest rumor from film-news.com notes, the ratings plummeted after J-Lo left, so they feel there is some bargaining power there.

What do you think would Jennifer be a way for the show to get back to their ratings of old?
