American Idol JudgesIn the showbiz world, nothing is official until the ink dries on the contract. That's why, despite 'American Idol' producer Nigel Lythgoe telling host Ryan Seacrest on the radio last week that Jennifer Lopez would be back for Season 11 of the Fox hit, we couldn't be certain if J.Lo would actually be back in 2012.

Thankfully, both sides were able to work out a deal, and now Fox has officially announced that all three of last season's judges -- Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy "Dawg" Jackson -- will return to gage the singing prowess of America's superstar hopefuls on 'American Idol' this spring.

'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM on CBS) reported on the poll Tuesday, talking to people on the sidewalk in Times Square to see who they'd choose.

LA Fitness polled 2,000 people to come up with Mirren, who appeared nude at 58 in the movie 'Calendar Girls.' "She's got a fabulous body, she really does," said one man on the street, looking at a photo of Mirren in a bikini. "But I don't know, I'd still pick J-Lo over her."

A couple of younger women in Times Square also thought it was "awesome" that a 66-year-old woman could top the poll. "I think she has a better body than I do right now," said one.

Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez on 'Good Morning America'Judging by their recent public appearances, Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez seemed to have a happy, healthy marriage. They performed together on the season finale of 'American Idol,' which ended with a passionate kiss. Three weeks ago, Anthony was on 'The Talk' waxing romantic about the first time he met J-Lo, and talking about being "all in" for the marriage. So it came as something of a shock when they announced Friday that they were divorcing after seven years of marriage, which 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC) reported Monday.

'GMA' quoted the couple's statement to the press Friday, which said, "We have decided to end our marriage. This was a difficult decision." The report also mentioned Lopez's banner year, including her job judging 'American Idol,' People magazine naming her the "World's Most Beautiful Woman," and her new single 'On the Floor.'

'GMA' also mentioned that Lopez has had several high-profile relationships, and was married twice previous to her marriage to Anthony. The report also mentioned the cliché "Seven Year Itch," which seemed like a reach for an explanation.

Anthony said he first met Lopez backstage at Paul Simon's Broadway musical 'The Capeman,' in which he was a co-star. "She walked in and I was just like, 'You're my wife and you don't even know it.'" Lopez apparently thought that was "intense," but it obviously didn't put her off.

Sharon Osbourne called Lopez "the most beautiful woman I think I have ever met in the entire world." She asked if it made Anthony nervous to be married to her. Anthony said 'People' just found out what he's known all along. "I signed up many years ago," he said. "I went all in."
