  • "American Idol" wants Jenny From The Block to be a judge

Jennifer Lopez reportedly left “American Idol” because they weren’t paying her enough, but now TMZ reports that the show execs are begging her to come back and are apparently willing to dish out major bucks for the privilege. Oh, did we mention that this would be after Mariah Carey allegedly gets the boot?
