Jennifer Lopez New York, July 30 (ANI): Singer and actress Jennifer Lopez is reportedly set to take up the role of a judge on ‘American Idol’ by replacing Ellen DeGeneres.

Lopez is close to signing a deal to join Fox TV’s hit singing contest, a person familiar with the negotiations said, reports the New York Daily News.

DeGeneres will leave the Fox talent show immediately, opting out of a four-year contract.

“A couple months ago, I let Fox and the ‘American Idol’ producers know that this didn’t feel like the right fit for me,” DeGeneres said in a statement.

The 52-year-old wrote on her Twitter account, “Dim the lights. … I’ve voted myself off ‘American Idol.’”

Tryouts for season 10 of the singing reality show began July 17 in Nashville. (ANI)
