J. Lo Undecided About Returning to American Idol

She Has a Latin Competition In the Works

Published June 15, 2011

Looks like Jenny may be taking her knack for scouting talent elsewhere. She told BBC radio 1 that she’s “on the fence” about returning to American Idol. "I don't know. I haven't been forced to make a decision, and I'm glad about that because honestly I'm very on the fence about it."

According to Reuters.com, Lopez, who signed a one year deal with Idol for a reported $12 million, seems to have her heart set on searching for Latin talent. She and her hubby Marc Anthony are developing “Q’Viva! The Chosen” a Latin competition show. The couple travels around the world with director-choreographer Jamie King in search of undiscovered Latino talent, starting in July. It will be filmed in English, Spanish and Portuguese and broadcast simultaneously on TV networks across the Americas.

"I had an amazing time doing it and I loved it, but I have a lot of other things happening, and it's going to come down to making a choice of really what I want to do for the next year," she said. "We're not really at the breaking point of 'You have to make a decision right now!' So I'm not. I'm really enjoying the time of just waiting -- and seeing."
