According to People.com, Jennifer Lopez is no longer being considered to join the judging panel of “American Idol” because of her escalating demands.

The singer/actress was named alongside Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler as possible replacements for exiting judges Ellen DeGeneres and Simon Cowell. But the offer is now said to be off the table.

“Her demands got out of hand. Fox had just had enough,” a source told People.

Tyler, who has confirmed he has met with TV bosses, has emerged as a strong contender to sit on the panel with existing judge Randy Jackson, while the rest of the line-up remains a mystery.
