With the continual merry-go-round of the judging panel for The X Factor USA and The X Factor UK, keeping everyone confused as to actually who is judging what, American Idol have decided to keep it simple and stick with the same panel for next year’s season. It is still a long way away but the plan is for Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson to all return for American Idol 2012.
recently admitted that he wasn’t so sure about doing the show
to begin with but was won round by the vast array of talent that came through the show. Steven Tyler
has also released a new single and an autobiography off the back of the show, which is probably the main reason he will be sticking around.
confirmed that he is definitely going to be back on the judging panel of the show, which will return for its 11th season, and he is extremely confident that J-Lo and Tyler will also be returning. Scotty McCreedy was the eventual winner of American Idol 2011
, making him the tenth Idol to come from the hit show.
