*file photo* * LOPEZ AND TYLER CONFIRMED AS NEW AMERICAN IDOL JUDGES JENNIFER LOPEZ and veteran rocker STEVEN TYLER have officially been unveiled as the new judges of hit U.S. reality show AMERICAN IDOL. Rumours about who will replace exiting judges Simon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres and Kara DioGuardi on the forthcoming season of the show have been swirling for weeks, with Harry Connick, Jr., Shania Twain and Chris Isaak being named as possible new additions alongside Lopez and Tyler. Reports surfaced last week (ends17Sep10) suggesting Lopez had finalised a one-year deal worth a whopping $12 million (£8 million) and TV producers confirmed the news on Wednesday (22Sep10) in a live broadcast from The Forum in Los Angeles. Lopez and Tyler will join the only remaining original judge, musician/producer Randy Jackson, on the panel when the talent contest returns to U.S. screens next year (11). Taking the stage in L.A., Lopez said, I've watched this show, I've seen it grow... I'm so excited. It's about concentrating on the moment... do the best you can, and just live, just live - it's your moment. But the star warned wannabe contestants she's not looking for just any singer: I'm looking for the next Michael Jackson, we're looking for the best American Idol ever. I'm excited, real excited.

Fantasia Barrino has pledged to support former Village People co-founder and star Victor Willis in his bid to become an American Idol judge. Willis has met with show producers and admits he's keen to join Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler on the new season to the talent search, which Barrino won in 2004 . And after backing the Y.M.C.A. hitmaker on Twitter.com, Barrino, who was recently hospitalised after taking an overdose of aspirin and sleeping pills, agreed to meet Willis face to face over dinner in Culver City, California. The two stars met for the first time on Wednesday night (25Aug10), when Willis told Fantasia he was still in secret talks to take over the vacant Idol judge's chair. His publicist, Linda Miller, tells WENN, According to Victor’s American Idol representative, no final decision has been made. He’s still in the running but all meetings between Victor and the Idol rep thus far has been very secretive. Fantasia's verdict: I was happy to meet him in person and he’s a nice guy. Simon Cowell's vacant chair on the show has been filled by Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler, but Idol producers have yet to confirm the rest of the new judging line-up. This is a PR photo.
