jennifer lopez steven tyler 'American Idol': The judges announcement announcementThe “American Idol” judges have been announced! Wait, that’s not right. The “American Idol” judges have been announced that they are going to be announced. The long national nightmare is finally coming to a close.

The big day is Wednesday (Sept. 22) at The Forum in Los Angeles, which is coincidentally the site of the recently-added Los Angeles auditions for Season 10. Which means Zap2it will be on the scene to bring all the details and drama.

Chances look pretty good that the judges panel will consist of Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, but we’re holding out hope that J-Lo and Mr. Aerosmith himself have been smoke screens for Harry Connick Jr. and Shania Twain. We are not optimistic.

Get ready, “Idol” fans. The craziness is about to begin.
