The rumors surrounding Jennifer Lopez and a possible return to the "American Idol" judges panel were partially true.
While JLO will be back on idol this season, it will just be to perform on the show’s finale later this month.
Last week The Hollywood Reporter released the “bombshell scoop” that Lopez would be heading back to her judge’s seat to replace Mariah Carey.
According to THR, "Idol" producers were so concerned with the show’s plunging ratings that they devised a plot to get JLO back.
The magazine said the show’s producers were still in negotiations with Lopez to make a comeback, since she was such a popular judge during seasons 10 and 11.
However, a Fox spokesman said the report was “just another ridiculous 'Idol' judge rumor, likely started by talks of Jennifer performing on the finale."
Since Lopez’s departure from the show, "Idol” has been struggling with their ratings.
While they have been on a decline for the past few seasons, last week’s ratings showed that “Idol” was losing momentum to rival singing competition show “The Voice.”
