According to E! online, along with the female pop stars, Adam Lambert and Will.i.am may also be roped in as new blood for the show.
The website also claimed that producers want Jennifer Lopez to return as a judge, but she has not committed. “No one has signed any contracts yet and producers are currently putting out feelers and setting up meetings to see who they can get,” an ‘Idol’ insider told the tabloid.
“We won''t know if Randy [Jackson] and Steven [Tyler] are returning until they see who else is on board. The source added that the producers of the show, "would like to breathe some new (possibly younger) life into the series to compete with ''X Factor,'' which recently cast Britney Spears and Demi Lovato."
