Here is your first glimpse of the new American Idol 2011 judges panel as the newly formed trio made their first stop in New Jersey. Nigel Lythgoe, the former executive producer who returned this year, tweeted a photo of the entire team: Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, and Ryan Seacrest.
It’s weird to see Randy Jackson sitting in Simon’s seat, but I guess it’s more appropriate when compared with the idea of putting Tyler or Lopez there.
Great to see American Idol back on track though and things moving toward the January 2011 premiere. Are you ready for things to get started?
