Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler Officially Returning to 'Idol'

Jennifer Lopez may not be sure where she'll be as the new season of American Idol begins, but one thing is certain: Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler will back on the judges' panel!

Fox has confirmed to EW.com that both men will return for season 11 of the talent competition -- which means Idol will continue to be flooded with Tyler's wild outfits and crazy comments and Jackson's continual "dawg" references. 

In May, Jackson appeared on Lopez Tonight, where he said that all three of the panelists would be back next season. Yet Lopez still seems to be holding out on her decision. Whether she's really unsure about her future plans -- or she's just hoping to score more than her already enormous $12 million paycheck --  remains to be seen. And, as previously reported, Fox may already be looking into replacements for J.Lo, should she choose not to grace them with their beauty once again.

Idol's season 10 was refreshing with Tyler and Lopez on the panel, and with the Aerosmith singer's unpredictable nature, we're sure we're in for another fun ride. As for the third judge, whether it's Lopez or Shania Twain or Shakira (the names recently thrown out as her seat-filler), we're hoping she has a wardrobe snazzy enough to compete with Tyler's!
