Now that The X Factor judging selection is sorted out, it looks like there’s yet another reality show who will be looking for a new member of their team!

There have been multiple reports saying that Jennifer Lopez will not return for her third season of judging on American Idol, but nothing is official. In the event that the 42-year-old superstar does in fact leave FOX’s hit show, they’re obviously going to need a new judge, so Celebuzz thought we’d pool together some names of who we think would make a great replacement!

So, who are some of those fit to fill in J.Lo’s shoes?

“Party in the USA” singer Miley Cyrus’ name was tossed around for The X Factor gig, so there’s definitely a possibility she could join AI. Another person who was considered to join Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid was Fergie, who we think would make a fabulous addition to the AI team.

Also, even though Mariah Carey recently dissed Britney Spears’ new X Factor gig, we think she has what it takes to find the next American Idol.

Those are some of our suggestions, but what do you think? Share you picks in the comments!
