Following months of negotiations, Jennifer Lopez will return to American Idol in the fall.

Exec producer Nigel Lythgoe confirmed this morning during a call to Ryan Seacrest’s radio show that JLo, along with Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson will all be back as judges in the fall.

“I am delighted to say that all three judges, along with the brilliant host of American Idol, is back for the next season,” Lythgoe said, adding that Jennifer, Steven and Randy are set to hit the road soon for season-11 auditions in Denver, Houston, St. Louis, Portland, San Diego, Pittsburgh and Charleston.

It was reported weeks ago that JLo would be returning, having cut a deal that was “a smidge over” $20 million, a nice raise from the $12 million she is said to have gotten for her first season.
