The new judge on American Idol drama continues! As we told you before, Jennifer Lopez has been in talks to replace Ellen Degeneres on the judging panel for American Idol, but it sounds like all those rumours about J.Lo being a diva might be true, because we just heard that the deal fell through and she is out.

Now another famous diva, Mariah Carey has announced that she would love the chance to be a judge on Idol and we think she would be a lot funnier to watch than Jennifer. Mariah's husband Nick Cannon said yesterday that everyone should start a campaign for Mariah on Idol and we agree! Just think of the silly outfits! (Source: Wenn)

What an outfit!
While performing in Las Vegas on Sunday Night, Steven Tyler confirms he is probably going to be a judge on American Idol next season, so it looks like the rumours are true! Steven and his girlfriend Erin Brady held an aftershow party at the MGM Grand's Studio 54 club and he told a reporter, "I'm doing American Idol, what do you think?".

Wow is there a shake-up happening inside American Idol this year! First Simon Cowell announced he was leaving and now new Judge Ellen Degeneres, who replaced Paula Abdul last year, has also dropped the bomb that she won't continue on as an Idol judge next season!

Elllen says she is a huge fan of the show, but she just couldn't handle handing out criticism, so there you go. The big question now is who will replace Ellen? The biggest rumour is that its Jennifer Lopez and some are saying that Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler is also in talks to join the show, but nothing is final yet. As we told you yesterday, there might be a chance that Jessica Simpson is taking Simon's seat, so its going to be a whole new panel this year!
