Did Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler resign from their judging seats at American Idol or were they fired instead? A rumor says the two aren't leaving of their own volition. Do you think that's true?
According to a report from Hollywood Life, JLo reportedly asked for a raise and didn't get oneÂ—leaving herself no choice but to leave the show. And they reportedly didn't even offer Steven Tyler another shot at being judge.
American Idol has been seeing a significant decline in ratings. Do you think producers want to shake things up so that hopefully the ratings will rise? Was getting rid of Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez part of some strategic plan?
Or is it simply hearsay? Both JLo and the Aerosmith frontman seemed sincere in their statements about leaving the show.
So what do you think the real scoop is? Did Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler really resign or did the powers-that-be at American Idol deal them bad hands that forced them to make these decisions?
