Despite rumors and prior reports of former American Idol judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler quitting the show, they're actually saying they really didn't.

Jennifer Lopez, who was paid over $27 million dollars in her two seasons on Idol and was expecting a $2 million dollars increase for her third season, was dumped from the struggling series! Steven Tyler was given the pink slip as well!

Why? Low ratings. Fox execs are looking to revamp the series, which may not even include veteran judge Randy Jackson!

The rumors for the next judges include Mariah Carey, Kanye West, and Mary J. Blige.

Can American Idol be saved?
