J. Lo out on 'American Idol'

Jennifer Lopez told Ryan Seacrest she was leaving the judges' table.

J. Lo out on 'American Idol'


Jennifer Lopez announced today that she was leaving "American Idol." The pop star/actress' announcement follows one made by former co-worker Steven Tyler, who announced yesterday that he'd be leaving the judges' panel as well. (Admittedly, Lopez's statement was considerably more lucid than Tyler's.)

"The time has come," Lopez told "Idol" host Ryan Seacrest on his nationally syndicated radio show, "On Air with Ryan Seacrest." Lopez joined the ratings juggernaut two seasons ago and it effectively revived her sagging career.

Lopez has been hanging out in Philly recently, practicing for her upcoming tour that hits Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on July 29.

Lopez's departure once again leaves Randy Jackson as the remaining "Idol" judge, confirming our theory that when the world ends, Jackson, Cher and cockroaches will have one hell of a party.

Does this spell uncertain doom for "American Idol"? Weigh in below, dear readers.
