It’s time to breathe a sigh of relief. American Idol judges Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson have officially confirmed that they will be back for Season 11 of the show. Steven and Randy were widely expected to return as both their contracts run through next season.

Jennifer Lopez still hasn’t indicated whether or not she will return to AI. The pop star claims she’s “on the fence” about  next season — though some rumors speculate she’s just holding out for a pay raise. Meanwhile, producers are throwing around names like Shakira and Shania Twain as possibly replacement judges.

We’re glad that at least two of the three judges are returning next season. But c’mon, Jennifer, make up your mind already!
