The latest rumor swirling around American Idol is that the woman with a closet full of saran wrap dresses and hair big enough to hide one of Joshua Ledet’s gospel choirs is leaving the series. It’s being reported that Jennifer Lopez, Queen of Goosies, may be giving her last hyperbolic standing ovation come May 23. But the big question is: How is this giant wrench in our Idol-loving lives going to affect us? From where I sit, Lopez leaving can only have one direct effect: A new judge and another squawking figurehead to detract from the important part, which is the irrational bond we form with the contestants. Please, Fox. Hold off on replacing Lopez. Come on, we can talk about this first.
