The rumors have been confirmed. The results are in, so to speak: Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler will join Randy Jackson as judges for the impending season of American Idol.
Jennifer is “excited” about her new gig as a judge on American Idol‘s 10th season, especially since it will allow more time at home with her family in L.A.”We’re really happy that we get to be in one place with the babies [2-year-old twins Max and Emme] for a while,” she says. “This is going to put us here for like six months. It’s unheard o
f for us. The babies can do dance class and soccer practice. We’re excited about being a little bit of a normal family for a little while.”
The move to Idol also demonstrates how Lopez, 40, and husband Marc Anthony, 42, make big life-decisions – like taking a new high-profile job – together.
