NEW YORK (July 13, 2012)--Jennifer Lopez is the second judge in two days to announce a departure from "American Idol."
Lopez is ending her tenure on television's most popular show after two years, her representative, Mark Young, said Friday.
Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler announced Thursday that he’s leaving.
That means the show's judging panel is down to one,
Randy Jackson, and there are reports that he may take a different role on the program moving forward.
Fox's "American Idol" has been TV's most popular program for nearly a decade, but it slumped in the ratings last season, and producers are looking for a way to shake things up.
