Adios J.Lo!

Jennifer Lopez has finally confirmed that she won't be returning for a third season of American Idol. The "Dance Again" singer revealed the news exclusively to American Idol host Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, On Air With Ryan Seacrest radio show.

"I really have been torn," said Jennifer. J.Lo is currently on tour with Enrique Iglesias and Frankie J along with her 4-year-old twins Emme and Max. She's also producing a new show about a gay couple that decide to adopt for ABC, and launching a new online t-shirt company, Teeology.com.

"When I signed on to Idol [in 2010], I signed on to do one year. I wound up doing two years because I fell in love with the show," she emotionally expressed. "I didn't know I would be so moved emotionally ... it was just such a lovely surprise in my life to do it. The time has come."

What do you think about J.Lo's American Idol departure? Are you still going to watch the show?
