American Idol May Sign Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler as New Judges 2010-07-30 11:15:00

Idol Update: DeGeneres Out, Lopez and Tyler May Be In

After the surprising news that Ellen DeGeneres is quitting American Idol, it seems the show has already found her replacement. The latest rumor is Jennifer Lopez signed a deal earlier this week to step in; furthermore, Steven Tyler is rumored to be taking over Simon Cowell's spot. As for the remaining judges, Randy Jackson will stay, but Kara DioGuardi has reportedly been booted to bring the show back to the old three-judge format, as opposed to four.

Perhaps we should have seen this coming. So You Think You Can Dance judge Nigel Lythgoe is said to be returning to his role as A.I. executive producer, and he's been very open about his desire to "replace the entire judging panel." With Lopez and Tyler moving in, and DegGeneres and DioGuardi moving out, could this changing of the guard be just the makeover that the show needs? What do you think of Jennifer Lopez and/or Steven Tyler in the judges' seats?
