While none of the original “American Idol” judges are still on the show, that doesn’t mean that the panel for the upcoming season won’t feature a number of familiar faces.
At a TCA panel, Fox’s Kevin Reilly announced that Keith Urban would be the sole returning star from last season’s judges table, Wetpaint reports.
However, a “fan favorite” judge might be rejoining the show for season 13, and that judge is none other than Jennifer Lopez.
While Reilly said that JLo has not officially signed on for what would be her third season on the hit singing competition series, he would confirm that the network was currently negotiating the icon’s to return.
As for the rumored addition of former “Idol” contestant Adam Lambert and Jennifer Hudson, scheduling conflicts have reportedly made that difficult, though the option hasn’t been entirely ruled out.
