Ryan Seacrest, presenter of American Idol, announced at a press conference in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Sept 22 that the new panel of American Idol’s upcoming 10th series judges are Aerosmith, Steven Tyler and singer Jennifer Lopez. Only record producer Randy Jackson remains from the original four judges. Judges Simon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres and Kara DioGuardi recently left the show. Simon Cowell quit the programme in May to concentrate on a US version of his show “The X Factor”. Lopez said the judges would be \'\'looking for the next Michael Jackson\'\' and  she feels excited to see who they find.

Before the decision-making was informed, many people and newspapers guessed Jennifer Lopez could not have chance to join the American Idol judging table next season although the fact is that Lopez is the only person to make the record: one album and one movie in the same week.
