“American Idol” executive producer Nigel Lythgoe called into Ryan Seacrest’s radio show on Wednesday to talk about tonight’s “So You Think You Can Dance” finale.... and to drop an “Idol” bomb.
Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson will all be back behind the judges’ table for the show’s eleventh season.
The announcement came after Seacrest asked Lythgoe, “Do you want to go ahead and do the Jennifer announcement here, or are we still waiting?”

Following her split from husband Marc Anthony in July, Jennifer Lopez is opening up about the dissolution of her seven-year marriage.
The family she created with Anthony, including the couple’s twins Max and Emme, “was my biggest dream, and I really worked hard at it. We both did,” Lopez tells the September issue of Vanity Fair.
“Sometimes it doesn’t work—and that’s sad,” she goes on. “But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love. It’s still my biggest dream.”

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are splitting up after seven years of marriage.
"We have decided to end our marriage," the couple says in a statement. "This was a very difficult decision. We have come to amicable conclusion on all matters. It is a painful time for all involved and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time."
Lopez, 41, and Anthony, 42, wed in 2004, according to People, and are the parents of 3-year-old twins Max and Emme.
The pair also have a reality show in the works, called "Q'Viva! The Chosen," which is described as "the ultimate live show celebrating Latin music, artistry and dance."

Jennifer Lopez had the chance to show her softer side as a judge on “American Idol's” 10th season – which also saw a ratings boost – but Lopez tells BBC Radio 1's Scott Mills that she’s still unsure if she'll return.
“I haven’t been forced to make a decision and I’m glad about that because honestly I’m very on the fence about it,” she says. Last fall, Lopez signed on to fill a vacant seat at "Idol's" judges' table for just one year, a deal that was reportedly for $12 million.
The mom of twins explains that she’s just got a hectic schedule - on top of the album she just released, she's also signed on to voice a character in "Ice Age 4" and is working on a reality series with husband Marc Anthony called "Q'Viva! The Chosen."

Cute, clean cut all-American guy drives the girls crazy and takes the "American Idol" championship. That's what happened Wednesday night when Scotty McCreery, a 17-year-old, deep-voiced, supermarket bagboy from Garner, North Carolina, won Season 10 of "American Idol."
Ever since he crooned "Baby, lock them doors and turn the lights down low" during his audition in Milwaukee, McCreery consistently had the support of fans and "Idol" judges who praised him every week. FULL POST
