LOS ANGELES ( — Guess who will be our new lady judge in American Idol next season? Yes, you have read it correct. Paula Abdul has left the show and now to fill her space, enters the sensational singer cum actress Jennifer Lopez. Lopez, of course, will be joined by sole original “Idol” judge Randy Jackson and fellow newbie Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler.

When Paula Abdul decided to quit, producers of this talent hunt show started to look out for a new alternative. It’s no secret that how popular was Paula in that show. Her mere presence (or shall we say stupidity??) was enough to draw high television ratings. So, American Idol needed someone with equal grace and talent on the judges seat. It seems the producers struck gold by signing in Jennifer. Known for her magnificent voice and charming actress skill, Lopez is already on her way of becoming a popular judge in television world.

But all are not so happy with this decision. Blogger Perez Hilton has criticized quite rudely against the inclusion of Jennifer Lopez in American Idol team.

If rate the new judges by the star power, the new panel will be qualified as a tremendous success. Lopez could be the best female judge in the history of the show, with all apologies to Paula Abdul and less to Kara DioGuardi and Ellen DeGeneres. On the other hand Tyler is a rock legend for his work with Aerosmith, though most of the “Idol” viewers know him and the band more for being on their parents’ classic rock stations than anything being done today. Still, he’s a big name with musical chops and is qualified for the position.

So, what do you think of our two new judges in American Idol? Are they going to be a super hit? Or all this media hype will come down as an avalanche soon after? Do share your views with us.
