Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler have been confirmed as the new 'American Idol' judges and will join Randy Jackson on the panel.
Auditions will be held in Los Angeles later today (22.09.10) before heading to New Jersey next week.
It had been reported Jennifer had agreed a $12 million deal to be a judge on 'American Idol', after bosses allegedly turned down her demands for a $15 million deal.
A source revealed: "I think it was just positioning. In the end, she didn't turn up her nose up at $12 million."
Lopez's manager Benny Medina arranged a meeting between the 'Jenny From the Block' singer and producers in June and she accepted the judging role in July.
