Jennifer Lopez London, April 20 (ANI): Jennifer Lopez has revealed that she declined Simon Cowell’s offer to be judge on the American ‘X Factor’ for the same role on rival show ‘American Idol’.

“We did talk about The X Factor for a little bit. But at the end of the day, thinking about my career and everything that was going on, when the opportunity to do Idol came along it seemed a better fit,” the Daily Star quoted her as saying.

“Idol has been a show for so many years. It’s an institution. To be involved in something like that felt really great,” she added.

And in her only British tabloid interview ahead of the release of her new album, Lopez admitted that she couldn’t be happier with her decision.

“I don’t know if I will do another season. I’m taking it day by day at the moment and we’ll see what happens,” she said.

“I’ve been having a great time, I can’t lie. I’m really enjoying it and having fun and enjoying working with the contestants. You can’t help but learn from them,” she added. (ANI)
