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.

Jennifer Lopez recently told the BBC that she's "on the fence" about returning to 'American Idol' next season. Although many insiders have dismissed it as just a ploy to get a pay hike, 'Idol' execs are already discussing possible replacements should they not be able to entice J.Lo to return.

"Right now the star of 'American Idol' is Steven Tyler," an insider source tells Popeater. "Everyone thought after Simon announced he was leaving that [Lopez] would fill the void. How wrong were they? It's all about Steven, who's already signed on for Season 11."

Liv Tyler on 'The View' Liv Tyler didn't meet her father, Aerosmith frontman and 'American Idol' judge Steven Tyler, until she was eight-years-old. Tuesday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), Liv talked about how she was enthralled with her father after they first met, and how happy she is now to see his late-career re-invention as an 'American Idol' judge.

"I remember him talking to me," said Liv, "and I just was listening to him and I was completely mesmerized by what he was saying and I kind of got sucked into his ... Steven Tyler-ness."

Similarly, Liv felt her dad's 'American Idol' judging stint has shown America a side of him she always knew was there. "It's amazing for me to see the world kind of discovering that for the first time," she said. "It's beautiful for me to see him at this point in his life doing something completely new and different."

Christoph Waltz, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'The judges on 'American Idol' have gotten a lot of flak this season for their lack of criticism to most of the contestants. Christoph Waltz went on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) with a rather clever response to the criticism.

Using footage from the show, he set up the skit as if he was a contestant on the show, only he was judging the judges. "I'm going to sing a song and you will say something negative about me," Waltz said. "Otherwise, I'll have you all executed."

One by one, he went through the judges demanding their best negative criticism. They found a critique from Randy Jackson where he said "it was actually kind of boring," while Jennifer Lopez was almost negative.

New 'American Idol' judge Steven Tyler stopped by 'Fox & Friends' (weekdays 6AM ET on Fox News) Thursday, and answered questions about his new high-profile gig.

Tyler denied feeling any pressure to keep the show's success going, and added that he, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson are bringing something to the table this season that the previous panels of judges lacked.

"When you see the camaraderie (among the judges), that was never even in 'Idol'," Tyler explained. "I'm taking a risk in saying that. I haven't seen them all, but I don't think there ever was."

Now it remains to be seen if audiences prefer this camaraderie to Simon Cowell's sideway glances of disdain.

Jay Leno apparently ran sort on the tough questions, because after asking the gimme question f what they're looking for in talent this year, he resorted to asking which of them took the longest to get ready for a taping.

After pointing at one another, Jackson set the record straight about Lopez. "Honestly, we don't know about Jennifer ... Somehow she gets ready at home or somewhere."
