Diva Dilemma: Jennifer Lopez or Jennifer Hudson For American Idol Judge Spot?
To J. Lo or to J-Hud, that is the question.
With American Idol looking to fill their judging panel (not completely, if Keith Urban sticks around), the search for worthy judges is building and building, and now it looks as if we have a battle over which Jennifer should join the panel. Will it be Jennifer Hudson or Jennifer Lopez? Pick only one. Go!
Former judge Jennifer Lopez is in negotiations to make an epic return to the show, an individual with knowledge of the situation told The Wrap. If she does come back, chances are she won't be making the $15 million she did last time, as the show's future is already shaky.
If producers and J. Lo can reach an agreement, that might mean J-Hud could be out. The Season 3 alum struck a deal with producers to be a judge for between $4 and $5.5 million, but the contract was never finalized and is open-ended, meaning it could be dismissed.
It appears Idol is still hoping to put together a 3-person judging panel, with 2 men and 1 woman. With one of the Jennifers destined for the female spot, Keith could fill the first male spot and music icon Will.i.am is still likely to fill the last spot.
What do you think? Is the judging panel shaping up like you had hoped? Which Jennifer would you choose? Hit up the comments with all your feels!
