Although the people at Fox have already stated that they love Jennifer Lopez and "don't want her to leave" the 'American Idol' judges table, her return next season is definitely up in the air with some saying she won't be returning at all.
Now with more news surfacing that the TV network is reportedly browsing around for new additions to the show, it seems more and more likely that she'll need to be replaced and Fox is apparently looking no further than former 'Idol' contestant Adam Lambert.
We're certainly hoping to learn a bit more about 'Glee' season 4 when the cast shows up to this year's Comic-Con 2012, given how precious little information is available. How much of the show will follow Rachel Berry's adventures in New York, and with whom? How much will stick with the New Directions in Ohio?

It takes a special kind of person to judge America's talented performers, be they auditioning for 'The X-Factor' or 'American Idol,' and an equally special viewers to keep with both shows season after season.

Sixteen-year-old Jessica Sanchez sang for "the save" last night on "American Idol" and the judges did not let her down. In fact, Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler swarmed the stage as if it were the beaches of Normandy, before Sanchez could even get to the chorus of Deborah Cox's "How Did You Get Here?" But did it work?
Ah, that special time of year when our favorite shows hopefully find renewal, and where some of the worse efforts of the season make their last stand. We don't sit around penting our fingers in nefarious malevolence toward FOX's 'I Hate My Teenage Daughter', but there's nothing wrong with a little schadenfreude now and again. It would seem that Jaime Pressly sitcom 'I Hate My Teenage Daughter' might be on its way out, as its low ratings and critical revulsion have turned FOX's hand to a decidedly dark decision.
There's two things that will get you kicked off 'American Idol:' having a record deal or just a plain old record. Unfortunately, for Top 13 finalist, Jermaine Jones, it's the latter.
