On Tuesday, Fox confirmed that Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick, Jr. will round out the judges' panel on the upcoming season of "American Idol," along with previously announced judge Keith Urban. Randy Jackson will return as a mentor and Ryan Seacrest will continue to host the show.



"'American Idol' has always been about discovering the next singing superstar and the next season our judging panel will deliver a most impressive combination of talent, wisdom and personality to do just that," Kevin Reilly, Fox's chairman of entertainment, said in a statement.

Ratings reached an all-time low last season, which some attribute to the hostile relationship between departed judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. Still, fans were excited for Urban's return, as was he.

"Thrilled to be back on @AmericanIdol with my pal @RyanSeacrest," he tweeted last month. "Dying to know who the other judges will be!!!!"

    He is the only good judge. I can't comment on J-Lo because i have never seen her style of judging and i HATE Harry Connick Jr because he is a jerk. All Harry will be after is someone with his style and his taste in music to be a winner on the show.

    Post went POOF! Anyway, if they'd get rid of the has been Lopez, put in someone like Cee Lo, it would be better. Cee Lo is more musically diverse than I ever knew before.

    It's not going to be the same without Randy, but anything is better than Mariah and Nicki's ridiculousness.

    I like J-Lo and I don't mind the other two, but the table doesn't seem dynamic enough. First off, they'll never replace Simon, period. They should put Randy back on the table too. I actually really hoped P!nk would take the part, as she is incredibly ranged and can give good advice to a variety of contestants. I actually hoped Nicki Minaj would stay. She was a good judge tbh but the drama with Mariah overshadowed a lot of that.

    I watched Ted Mack's Amateur Hour when i was a kid, so I got over this kind of show. Talent is one thing, American Idol, and all the copycats, is a freak show with egotistical judges with diarrhea of the mouth.

    Can't stand Jlo....and Harry Conehead Junior? Really? This is the best we can do for judges of ALL the hack talent agents and producers out there needing money? Sorry, but I am in the minority of people who actually liked Nikki. Keith was and is okay, but I am permanently done watching AI.

    I don't care for Jennifer Lopez. I would have loved to see Pink,Gwen Steffani, and Justin Timberlake. Artist who have made a name for themselves...with GOOD music of course. Keith Urban is good too though.
  • Sass 2013/09/04 15:26:46

    Actually, how about a "wait & see" choice. So far the only one I really like is Keith Urban.
