The executives of ‘American idol’ thought that they could keep Jennifer Lopez as a judge for another season on the show but it turns out they were totally wrong. During a chat with Ryan Seacrest yesterday (July 13th), Lopez confirmed her departure from the show leaving the execs in quite a pickle.
She said: “It’s been a long process and you know this more than anybody… I really have been torn, since we spoke about it even before the finale. I did two years since I fell so in love with the show. I never felt so much a part of a family with something, working on it, as I did with ‘Idol.’ It was such a lovely surprise in my life to do it, but you know, even last year, when I had to make the decision, it was super tough to decide.”
She continued, “Something has to give and that’s where I am right now.” “I was dreading this phone call. I honestly feel like the time has come that I have to get back to doing the things I’ve put on hold because I love ‘Idol’ so much. We had an amazing run.”
Seacrest then asked, “Is the door open?”
She replied, “No matter what you guys need over there, I am always going to be there.” “I don’t know if I can be there every single day, all the time, the way we’ve been doing it the past two years.”
