While Jennifer Lopez‘s American Idol career might be a one-and-done, Fox has confirmed her fellow judges Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler are definitely coming back, and the Aerosmith front man dished on the show’s next season during a Q&A at the House Of Blues in his native Boston on Wednesday.
Tyler told The Boston Herald he hasn’t spoken with J.Lo for “about a month,” joking he’s had “major separation anxiety” from her and Jackson.
The show “was quite intense this year, and I got so much pleasure out of being a part of it,” he said. “They were all good before I met them, and they’re even better now.
“I miss Randy’s humor, Jennifer’s jokes, and Marc [Anthony,] her husband,” he said. “I miss them all. We’re one big family there, you know?”
Lopez this month told the BBC she’s not sure whether she’ll return to the top-rated Fox hit, despite a season of great ratings and good chemistry with her fellow judges.
Asked if she’d return, Lopez said, “You know, this is the question of the hour. I don’t know, I don’t know.
“I had an amazing time doing it and I loved it, but I have a lot of other things happening, and it’s gonna come down to making a choice of really what I want to do for the next year.”
