    There is an article that JLo has been offered the judge's job & that JHud is out. Keith Urban is confirmed as returning for sure. :cheer2: The auditions have already started & without the judging panel set I'm wondering how they are doing them. I know the producers make the 1st or 2nd cut but then it's the celebrity panel who decides who goes to Hollywood week.

    I despise JLo as a judge. She adds no value whatsoever for me. I was hoping for Melinda Doolittle & Adam Lambert.

    On the radio this morning, they said that Jennifer Lopez approached the producers of The Voice to be one of their judges. The kindly said, "no thanks". The DJs wondered if it was because Lopez got such a high payment for being on AI that she had outpriced herself on a spot on another show.

    Interesting. I thought everyone saw AI as a sinking ship and they were scurrying away like rats... :lol:

    It would have been a great gig for Doolittle as her recording career never took off, but not for the others. They're still working towards hitting their peak. They should focus on music. (I hope both stop singing about such depressing topics. Take that to your therapy sessions. Pop music should be FUN!)

    Maybe the contestants will sing to a green screen and the judges will be edited in come November. :lol:

    I don't think JLo's salary demands have anything to do with why The Voice doesn't want her. She's not nearly as entertaining or articulate as The Voice judges. She basically just said that people were beautiful or did the producers' bidding when they wanted to get rid of someone like Haley. She was useless. If Idol is seriously considering bringing her back, it shows how incompetent the new folks running things are.

    They have a little bit of time to get judges. The judges aren't there for the cattle call auditions. The show up for the ones who make it past the producers in the initial auditions.

    Congrats to Kris Allen and his wife. (And, oh yeah, rumor has it Simon Cowell is going to be a daddy: http://www.latimes.com/entertainmen...ife-lauren-silverman-20130731,0,2716381.story So, um, congrats to him, too? And to the baby mama? But, um, not to the baby mama's hubby?)

    Oh please no more Jennifer Lopez. I don't think I can listen to her getting "goosies" for another season. :scream:

    I liked JLo on the show. I thought she was way better than either or both of last year's women...........at least in the few episodes I managed to watch last year.

    I predicted Jhud would be out when it was "confirmed" she was a judge right after last year wrapped up. It was too soon. She may still be a judge but they had to drop her first and may reconfirm her role weeks before the judges begin taping.
