Despite intimate involvement in this years American Idol resurgence, emotional judge Jennifer Lopez may not return for a second season.  It seems that the “most beautiful woman in the world” may choose instead to return to acting, while continuing to make pop records.  J-Lo had previously signed a year contract valued at 12 million dollars, which sounds an awful lot like my contract with Beliefnet!

This would be a huge blow to a show that seemed revitalized last season thanks in part to a slick new cast of judges.  The three of them had solid chemistry, and Lopez was able to become attached to the contestants without seeming as crazy as Paula Abdul or as frigid as Kara Dioguardi.  At least it seems J-Lo wouldn’t be leaving the show in a blaze of controversy like those two did, but it certainly would look like she used American Idol just to remind the world that Jennifer Lopez exists.

If that’s the case then well played J-Lo, well played.
