american IdolAll the speculations will finally end Wednesday, September 22, when Fox and Ryan Seacrest will announce the judges for the tenth season of reality hit show American Idol. The time and place of the announcement were not released though.

“Looks like I have some new plans on wed! I will be able to introduce the @AmericanIdol judges panel! We will send u a pic! Can’t wait,” host Seacrest said via a Twitter message.

It has been repeatedly reported that the new judges will be Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith. So the announcement may just turn out to be a formality.

Lopez is being reported to have made a 12 million dollar one year deal.

Others who were previously reported to be considered for the vacant posts were Shania Twain, Chris Isaak, Elton John and Harry Connick, Jr.

Vacant seats went up for grabs when Simon Cowell did not renew his contract, Ellen DeGeneres quit and Kara Dioguradi left the show. Randy Jackson remained as the only pioneer judge in the show.

The final auditions will also take place on the same day in Los Angeles, California. The time of the announcement was not released.
