Fox exec: No new 'Idol' judges announcement yet

Fans of “American Idol” are going to have to wait a little bit longer for an official announcement of the new judges.

"No one has signed a deal yet on either side of the camera for this year that wasn't there last year,” said Peter Rice, chairman of entertainment for Fox Networks Group at the Television Critics Association Press Tour.

Speculation has run rampant since judge Ellen DeGeneres announced last week that she would be following fellow judge Simon Cowell’s lead in leaving the show. Following that announcement have been reports that judge Kara DioGuardi is also out and Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler are in as replacements.

'American Idol' Season Nine finale begins

Looks like we made it. Look how far we've come, my babies.

That was my homage to Shania "I Think She'd Be a Better Judge Than Kara DioGuardi" Twain.

The show just began, and I suspect that we are in for at least an hour's worth of lovefest for Simon Cowell.

Top 2 take to the 'Idol' stage

8:48 p.m. –So MamaSox gets a cover tune, too, with "Up to the Mountain."

This song seems made for her, and she sang the mess out of it. I got chills when she sang "It's been a long time coming." You could tell she almost broke down and started bawling.

She actually had a moment there. Wow.
