New York: Jennifer Lopez won’t judge singing reality show "American Idol".

The singer-actress had been closing a deal to be a permanent judge on the show for its upcoming 10th season, but the deal fell apart. "Her demands got out of hand," quoted a source as saying.

With Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres leaving the show, the Fox network had been pursuing a number of celebrities as potential judges, including Steven Tyler.
