American Idol will return on January 22, 2011 with the same panel of judges seen during Season 10: Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson.  The departure of Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell left many viewers concerned the show wouldn’t be able to pull through without the two who were staples on the show, but season 10 was a surprising success.  Earlier rumors circulated that Lopez might not return for a second season and with news of her separation with husband Mark Anthony and her filing for divorce on July 15, 2011, many wondered if she would make it back to the show.  Her return has been met with great approval from fans across the board.  Season 10 of American Idol not only outweighed viewer’s expectations, but it was nominated for a whopping 10 Primetime Emmy Awards.

Simon Fuller, Executive Producer and the show’s creator said, “Having both Jennifer and Steven return to IDOL in 2012 alongside Randy is such a positive reflection on what was a wonderful and hugely successful season last year, and everyone is delighted.” Randy Jackson is the only judge who has remained with the show since its inception.

American Idol’s return will follow the NFC Championship Game and will air from 10:00-11:00 pm, ET and 7:00-8:00 pm, PT on January 22, 2011.
