Jennifer Lopez and Will.i.am Considered Major Contenders for Idol Judging Panel
With much of American Idol's reboot going on behind the scenes, fans are itching to find out who is going to be leading the judging panel on Season 13.
A source told The Hollywood Reporter that the Fox show is beginning to finalize deals with potential judges and a familiar face might just be returning to Idol. That would be none other than the multi-talented Jennifer Lopez, who was a judge back in 2011 and 2012.
As for what's holding her back from making the deal, one insider says it's money. Given Mariah Carey's $18 million payday and the fact that JLo only made $15 million, it's reported that her manager Benny Medina is asking for an extra incentive to come back to the show.
