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."
