Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, And Steven Tyler Officially Announced As 'American Idol' Judges
The announcement came during a glitzy show hosted by Ryan Seacrest. The judges had little time to party with the ecstatic crowd, as the first auditions were apparently underway soon after.
The new lineup comes after a tumultuous time for American Idol. Paula Abdul left in 2009 after a contract dispute, Simon Cowell has moved on to head X Factor, Kara DioGuardi only lasted two seasons, and Ellen DeGeneres had no intention of returning after her first year.
What do you think of the new judges? Let us know in the comments.
