Though we haven't heard the words from J.Lo herself, an executive producer of American Idol says celebrity judge Jennifer Lopez will return for another season. Nigel Lythgoe made the announcement on the On-Air with Ryan Seacrest program yesterday morning. He acknowledged it wasn't official, but he added he was "delighted to say that all three judges" and the show's "brilliant host" (aka Ryan Seacrest) are back for the next season, its 11th.
