J.Lo's 'on the fence' about returning to 'Idol'

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."

Nice guy finishes first again on 'Idol'

We have so been here before.

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

And we are done with Season 10 of "American Idol."

It's been a good ride, with some ups and downs and a few shockers along the way.

Plenty of people predicted a Simon Cowell-less "American Idol" would sink, but the ratings went up as did the voting tallies. FULL POST
