All signs are pointing to a repeat of the ‘Idol remix’ that made Season 10 such a huge success. Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson have been confirmed for American Idol ‘s Season 11 for awhile now, but negotiations between Jennifer Lopez’s reps and FOX Broadcasting Co. have kept fans in suspense for weeks. But The Wall Street Journal learned from insiders that a deal will happen soon, and Jennifer will return for at least one more season.
FreemantleMedia, the company that produces Idol, would make no direct statement regarding Jennifer’s contract, though Cécile Frot-Coutaz, the chief executive officer, did say, “We’re in good shape. No worries. No dark clouds on the horizon.” Jennifer’s team also declined to comment, saying there was nothing to announce.
Maybe it’s that $20 million price tag that’s the final sticking point?
