Jennifer Lopez - Jennifer Lopez To Be Replaced By Shakira On American Idol?

Jennifer Lopez is continuing to stall her contract negotiations with American Idol, but her plans could backfire as television executives begin to search for her replacement, according to the UK's Daily Mail. Lopez is the only judge yet to sign on for the show's eleventh season, with Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson already confirmed to return.
The multi-award winning singer is thought to be in two minds about returning to the reality singing contest. The heavy filming schedule is likely to add strain to her family life - she and husband Marc Anthony are parents to three years old twins Max and Emme. As Lopez continues to stall on a new contract, bosses at Fox have been forced to consider other options. Pop star Shakira and the country star Shania Twain are thought to head the list of potential replacements should Lopez look to move on. The singer was recently cast in the big-screen adaptation of the parenting book 'What to Expect When You're Expecting', which also stars comedian Chris Rock, supermodel Brooklyn Decker and the actress Cameron Diaz. The singer will play 'Holly', a woman who decides to adopt a child from overseas after having trouble conceiving.
Jennifer Lopez has also confirmed plans to release 'Papi' as the third single from her album 'Love?' An official release date is yet to be confirmed, but the singer has signalled her intention to put out a double A-side release.
