BREAKING: Two New Judges Confirmed for Season 10 of American Idol
Last year, American Idol lost three of it’s judges. Simon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres and Kara Dioguardi all left the show, leaving fans wondering who would join Randy Jackson at the judges table this fall.
Well, via a live Ustream chat (with broken sound) and a live broadcast on KISS FM, we have confirmed season 10’s two new judges: Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez.
Tyler, of course, is the long time frontman for rock band Aerosmith, who during their career have released 10 platinum albums and been nominated for 17 Grammys, winning 4.
Jennifer “J’lo” Lopez is a triple threat singer/dancer/actress. All 6 of her currently released studio albums have gone at least platinum, and her estimated worldwide record sales are between 17-25 million. More importantly, in this case, is that Lopez is a long time fan of AI and has appeared multiple times on the show as a celebrity mentor.
While this comes as no surprise (the internet had confirmed Tyler and Lopez as the new judges weeks ago), we’d still like to offer our congratulations to the two and wish them luck. After all, anyone who’s seen AI audition footage knows they’re going to need it.
