Jennifer Lopez Agrees to $12 Million American Idol Deal

She`s been in and out more times than The Situation on Jersey Shore, but Jennifer Lopez appears to finally have agreed to a deal with Fox.

About a month after reports indicated the singer would NOT be joining the revamped judging table on American Idol, Nikki Finke of Deadline Hollywood now says a deal is complete.

The hold up, reportedly, had been J Lo`s insistence that Fox agree to a movie deal along with the Idol gig, but sources say the network "called her bluff several times."
"That`s when real or imagined `Plan B` feelers put out to other talent would wind up in the media," Finke writes. "It was left to returning Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe to deny these unconfirmed reports circulating that J-Lo was losing the job because of her diva demands."

All signs now point to Lopez signing a deal that pays her $12 million per year. An astronomical amount? Of course. But it`s pocket change compared to what the show brings in each week via advertising.

While Fox still is yet to make any official announcement, Kara DioGuardi is definitely out, leaving a season 10 panel of Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler and J Lo. Does that make you excited to tune.
