After weeks and weeks of unconfirmed reports and rumors, Fox has finally announced Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. will be joining Keith Urban on the judging panel for the 13th season of American Idol.
In addition, the network has confirmed that Randy Jackson will be returning to the show as the "in-house mentor," replacing Jimmy Iovine. And, of course our boy Seacrest will be back as host.
“I have always been a huge fan of American Idol and really enjoyed my time as a mentor on the show,” said Harry in a statement. "And I am honored that they’ve asked me to be a judge this season. As an entertainer, I am truly excited to bring my perspective to American Idol, and to help emerging performers find their way."
