The judges were joined at the table for a photo with the show’s host Ryan Seacrest.
That same day, the four of them made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show via satellite to chat about the new season.
“Um, it was actually a difficult decision because I had a lot of stuff going on,” Jennifer said about returning to the show. “It was going to be hard to fit it in. To be really honest, I just love the show and I love working with the singers and I love the family here. And, this (points to Keith and Harry) is working really great. So yeah, we’re having a great time. So at the end of the day everything that’s meant to be happens.”

The 45-year-old crooner will be joining returning judges Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez for this year’s three person panel. Harry has previously appeared on the show multiple times as a guest mentor to the contestants.
There have been rumors swirling that Harry would be signing on after industry professionals Dr. Luke and Scooter Braun both passed on the judging position as the job would interfere with their current careers.
Auditions for the show begin next week so time was of the essence in signing the third judge or else production may have been delayed.
