Jennifer Lopez is ‘being lined up’ for American Idol RETURN after Katy Perry announced her exit

American Idol producers are hoping to get Jennifer Lopez back on the judging panel, according to show insiders, who claim bosses could consider shaking up the entire panel after Katy Perry announced her shock exit this week.

Fans were left stunned after the 39-year-old pop star confirmed she is stepping down from the popular ABC show on Monday, leaving a slot open for a new star to join regulars Lionel Richie, 74, and Luke Bryan, 47.

But the insider claimed producers are also considering other possibilities, including recruiting younger names to draw in a new demographic – and even Taylor Swift.

‘The show could also go younger and have a younger voice in the mix, because if they keep Luke and Lionel, they want someone who is a bit of a firecracker,’ they continued.

‘They would consider changing the entire panel if need be, even though they love Lionel and Luke.’

The pair have both served as judges since the revival in 2018.

‘Show host Ryan [Seacrest] has told higher-ups to go for someone that is out of the box if they do a complete overhaul,’ the source continued. ‘No one thought Steven Tyler was going to be what he was and he was a fun choice.
