Singer Jennifer Lopez is following Steven Tyler out the exit door
J-Lo wants to focus on other commitments and raising her twins Max and Emme, 4.
‘I honestly feel like the time has come that I have to get back to doing the other things that I do,’ Jennifer, 42, told American Idol host Ryan Seacrest this morning on his US radio show.
‘Something has to give… We had an amazing run.’
Jennifer‘s announcement comes just a day after fellow American Idol judge Steven Tyler confirmed he was quitting the show.
‘After some long hard thoughts, I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress American Idol before she boils my rabbit,’ the Aerosmith frontman, 64, said in a statement.
‘I strayed from my first love Aerosmith and I’m back – but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I’ve got two fists in the air and I’m kicking the door open with my band.
‘The next few years are going to be dedicated to kicking some serious ass – Idol was over-the-top fun and I loved every minute of it… Now it’s time to bring rock back.’
Randy Jackson is the last remaining judge on the panel.
Now producers are in talks with stars such as Katy Perry, Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus and American Idol alumni Adam Lambert to join the show.
