jlo idol floor Jennifer Lopez on return to 'American Idol': 'It's too early to tell'Who knew being a judge on “American Idol” would be the best thing to ever happen to Jennifer Lopez? Or her career, at least.

Since joining the FOX reality show eight months ago, Lopez has enjoyed a career resurgence — her latest album “Love?” sold well, her single “On The Floor” hit No. 1 on iTunes in 18 countries and People magazine named her The Most Beautiful Woman in the World.

So it should seem like a no-brainer that Lopez will return for Season 11, right? Wrong. Lopez has yet to sign on for next season and tells FOX411, “It’s too early to tell.” The 41-year-old is said to be in contract negotiations with FOX.

Steven Tyler
will definitely be returning (alongside original judge Randy Jackson) for Season 11 as he signed a multi-year contract, which earned him a reported $18 million for Season 10 alone. Lopez reportedly signed for $12 million.

Earlier this week, FOX chief Peter Rice said, “Everyone has multiple-year contracts. Jennifer has [a] single-year contract. We loved having her — the hope and expectation is she’ll return.”

Would you like to see Jennifer Lopez return to the judges’ table for another season, Zappers? Sound off in the comments.
