Last week, when Jennifer Lopez announced that she was leaving American Idol less than a day after Steven Tyler did the same, the ever-shrinking Idol audience may have wondered why, exactly, Lopez left so suddenly. And now we have an answer: Because Steven Tyler did.
“We had magic,” Lopez told ABC News. “I don’t know, with him gone, it might be a different formula.” She also suggested a few potential replacements for her seat: "I think like Bono or Bon Jovi or Mick Jagger. You know me, I think big."
Another name that may come to mind is Enrique Iglesias, who is currently touring with J. Lo. But he apparently doesn't want the job: “I wouldn’t be a good judge," Iglesias said. "It’s a lot of pressure, just thinking about, ‘Oh my god, I just ruined this person’s career.'"
J. Lo clarified that she might return to Idol in the future: “I love them and they love me and it’s hard when I feel like I should move on. I don’t know that it’s even done yet. I don’t know. I feel like I’m moving on.”
Do you think J. Lo's departure was wise? Let us know in the comments!
