Jennifer Lopez Exits 'American Idol'

Jennifer Lopez has officially announced that she plans on leaving American Idol.

“I honestly feel like the time has come for me to doing the other things I do that I’ve kind of put on hold because I love Idol so much,” the 42-year-old singer said to host Ryan Seacrest on his radio show this morning.

“No matter what you guys need over there, I’m always going to be here. I feel there’s that tie there. I just can’t be there every day like I was for the last two years,” Jennifer added.

News of Jennifer‘s departure comes just one day after Idol judge Steven Tyler announced his leave from the show.

As for who will be replacing the judges, Miley Cyrus, Adam Lambert, and Mariah Carey‘s names have all been tossed into the mix.
