After weeks of Will She or Won't She speculation, Fox has finally confirmed that Jennifer Lopez has officially signed on to return as a judge for American Idol season 11. "Having both Jennifer and Steven [Tyler] return to Idol in 2012 alongside Randy [Jackson] is such a positive reflection on what was a wonderful and hugely successful season last year, and everyone is delighted,” said Simon Fuller, Creator and Executive Producer of American Idol.

The news was unofficially confirmed earlier today when Lopez showed up in Savannah, GA for the first round of auditions.
