TVLine Items: J.Lo Hints at Idol Exit, Kristin Chenoweth Out of Hospital, Fresh Hell and More!

It’s looking more and more like American Idol will be decidedly J.Lonelier next season.

Appearing on NBC’s Today Thursday morning to promote Ice Age: Continental Drift, pop diva Jennifer Lopez hinted that she might be done as an Idol judge. As noted by TVGuide.com, Lopez ducked a question about her future on the Fox hit a bit and said, “I am thinking it’s maybe time for me to go and do other things I really love to do like films … and performing.” Lopez also stated that she’d already stayed with the reality juggernaut a year longer than she originally intended.

Would losing Lopez be a good or a bad thing, Idol faithful? Sound off in Comments!
