Much has changed on “American Idol” since the show began 14 years ago, but fans need not worry, because Jennifer Lopez will be back next season.

Along with J.Lo, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. and host Ryan Seacrest will also return.

In the official press release, creator and executive producer Simon Fuller said, “[I am] thrilled our consummate host, Mr. Ryan Seacrest, is returning for Season 14, together with Jennifer, Harry and Keith.”

“American Idol XIV,” as it is being called by its producers, will premiere on Fox this January, and we can’t wait to see our judges back in action.

There had been some question whether Lopez, who has a new album out and has already left the show once before would return for the next cycle.

She has already signed on for an undercover cop drama, “Shades of Blue,” set to air on NBC during the 2015-16 season, with Seacrest as a producer.

Will you be watching “Idol” next season?
