New York: Jennifer Lopez is reportedly in negotiations to come on board the second season of `American Idol` as a judge.
Initially, Lopez had said that she wasn`t sure whether she would return to the popular reality show.
Lopez, who recently separated from her husband Marc Anthony, is closing in on a deal that would see her back on the American Idol judging panel for at least one more season, Wall Street Journal reported.
C`cile Frot-Coutaz, CEO at FremantleMedia North America, which produces the Fox singing competition, declined to comment on the negotiations.
But Lopez said, "We`re in good shape. No worries. No dark clouds on the horizon."
Lopez joined Idol last season amid a judges` shake-up that saw Simon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres and Kara Dioguardi exit the show and Lopez and Steven Tyler come on board alongside veteran Randy Jackson.
Tyler will be back next year. Jackson also is set to return for Idol`s 11th season, which debuts in January.
