Jennifer Lopez Leaves American Idol

Jennifer Lopez Announces Her Departure From American Idol

It's official: Jennifer Lopez is leaving American Idol after two seasons beside Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler on the judges' panel. Lopez called into Idol host Ryan Seacrest's radio show this morning and confirmed the rumors that had been swirling for days about her indecision to return for American Idol's 13th season. Though the singer insisted that her stint on the show is "one of those special things in your life that you don't want to walk away from," she would like to focus on some of the aspects of her life that she had to put on hold while committed to Idol.

The news comes just a day after Steven Tyler announced his split from the show in a press release. No official word yet on who will be replacing Lopez or Tyler, but fans can only hope that American Idol O.G. Randy Jackson will be staying on to hold down the fort.
