Jennifer Lopez On 'American Idol' Return: 'I'm On The Fence'

"American Idol" may be hunting for more than singers this summer -- they may need a new judge, too.

In a new interview on BBC Radio, Jennifer Lopez was very non-committal about her future on the singing competition, saying that she was unsure if she'll return to the show.

"I don't know. I haven't been forced to make a decision and I'm glad about that because honestly I'm very on the fence about it," the first year judge told Scott Mills of BBC 1 (via The Hollywood Reporter). "I had an amazing time doing it and I loved it but I have a lot other things happening, and it's going to come down to me making a choice of what I want to do for the next year and we're not really at the breaking point of 'You have to make a decision right now!' I'm just really enjoying the time of just waiting and seeing."

Lopez signed a one year contract last August, netting her a cool $12 million. The comments jived with what Lopez said in May, when she told Fox 411 that it was "too early to tell," whether she'll come back.

Perhaps she's angling for money; the Fox 411 report said that while Lopez made $12 million, her fellow new judge, Steven Tyler, took home $18 million.

Tyler is signed for another year.
