JLo turned down `X-factor`

London: Pop diva and actress Jennifer Lopez has said she was in discussions to join Simon Cowell`s `The X Factor`, but opted for `American Idol` instead.

The 42-year-old judges the show alongside Aerosmith`s Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson, the Contactmusic reported.

"We did talk about The X Factor for a little bit. But at the end of the day, thinking about my career and everything that was going on, when the opportunity to do Idol came along it seemed a better fit.

"Idol has been a show for so many years. It`s an institution. To be involved in something like that felt really great," Lopez said.

But the `Wedding Planner` star is not sure she will make it to the second season of the music reality show.

"I don`t know if I will do another season. I`m taking it day by day at the moment and we`ll see what happens. I`ve been having a great time, I can`t lie. I`m really enjoying it and having fun and enjoying working with the contestants."
