Although FOX has not made the official statement, according to People.Com and The New York Post, it appears that Jennifer Lopez has signed a one-year deal to be an "American Idol" judge.

There’s been speculation Lopez was coming to the reality TV block for weeks, but the rumor was that she wasn’t getting the deal she wanted.

But the reports now indicate she signed for just over $12 million.

Many names have been rumored regarding the seats on the judge panel for this coming season, including Snoop Dogg and Steven Tyle. Talk about Workplace diversity!

Snoop Dogg tweeted last month, "Steven Tyler + Snoop Dogg = ??!?!?!"

Walk this way with gin and juice?

Although Snoop sounds like excited, Tyler’s best bandmate, Joe Perry does not. He said in the interview with the Calgary Herald this month: "It’s [Tyler’s] business, but I don’t want Aerosmith’s name involved with it. It’s a reality show designed to get people to watch that station and sell advertising. It’s one step above “(Teenage Mutant) Ninja Turtles.’"
