J.Lo reportedly set to return to 'Idol' next season

Jennifer Lopez is coming back to "American Idol."

A little over a week ago, it was announced that Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson had signed deals for more time at the judges' table. Now, I'm being told...


Lopez has also agreed to return. A source tells me exclusively an announcement could be coming any day now.

The singer-actress said in an interview about a month ago that she hadn't decided what she was going to do.

"I don't know. I haven't been forced to make a decision and I'm glad about that because honestly I'm very on the fence about it," the first year judge told Scott Mills of BBC 1, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"I had an amazing time doing it and I loved it, but I have a lot other things happening, and it's going to come down to me making a choice of what I want to do for the next year and we're not really at the breaking point of 'You have to make a decision right now!' I'm just really enjoying the time of just waiting and seeing."

Lopez sat at the Fox table at BAFTA's Brits to Watch gala Saturday night. She was invited by Fox television boss Peter Rice.

I'm told she had also surprised her mom, Lupe, by flying her to L.A. to attend the BAFTA event with her. Marc Anthony was not there.

As royal watchers already know, Prince William and Kate Middleton attended the gala. Other celebs include Nicole Kidman, Tom Hanks, Kristen Chenoweth, Derek Hough, Ed Westwick, Stephen Moyer, Ed Helms, Jonah Hill and many more.
