Too busy juggling her own music career and kids?

This E! Online report quotes unnamed sources saying that J.Lo has no plans to return for a third "American Idol" season because "she's just too busy" with tour plans.
"That's so very true," the report notes, before going into detail about the plans.
While she hasn't said as much herself, Lopez did not exactly squash the rumors while asked about them on "Ellen" on Tuesday. Instead of touring, however, she provided a different motivation.
"I don't know if I can go for a third year," Lopez said. "I miss doing other things. It really does lock you down, which was nice the first year with the babies being three, but now they're getting more mobile, they're about to go into school ... So I just don't know."
Of course, this could all just be a negotiating ploy. Lopez's contact comes up every year and hefty pay raises are the norm. (According to E!, she earned $12 million for her first season and $20 million this time.)
"American Idol" airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
Joshua is a soul singer and not everyone likes soul.
the teeny bobbers are the ones who decide who will go and who will stay.A lot of them do not like soul. I would not have voted for him. As far as J LO going, I say good riddens. Jimmy is the only one who makes any sence.
I happen to like these judges...I think they do a good job of picking the best talent.
.As far as Josh being voted out...I think it's a crime. He and Jessica should have been going head to head...they both are awesome singers...Philip should have been ousted long ago....
It's these damn teenie boppers with tin ears that are ruining the show... these kids don't care about talent. This has happened many times..it is so unfair! Until they change the rules...this sh*t will continue!
There should be a limit to how many times a person can vote!!!
I lost ALL respect for J.Lo's opinion when she made such a big fuss about 'saving' Jessica a few weeks back. The judges are their to give advice and guidance to ALL contestants, and showing that much favortism toward one person was extremely tacky. And if Jessica DOES win next week, it just proves to me that America isn't really picking these winners.
JLO CAN GO.....THANK YOU IN ADVANCE .
AMERICAN IDOL IS ASLO ON THE WAY OUT...
