ellen degeneres idol fox No 'American Idol' judges announcement forthcoming MondayThe rumors of who is replacing Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres on the “American Idol” judges’ panel have been coming fast and furious — but FOX is not ready to show their hand just yet.

A source close to the show tells Zap2it that no deals are signed yet, no judges’ panel is set and there is no imminent announcement, as was previously speculated because FOX’s Summer Press Tour panel is Monday, Aug. 2.

The latest rumors have been that Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler are taking over for the departing Cowell and DeGeneres, with Kara DioGuardi being let go and Randy Jackson left as the only remaining current judge on the panel.
