NEW YORK - (AP) - Jennifer Lopez is the second judge in two days to say she's leaving "American Idol."

Her representative, Mark Young, said Friday that Lopez is ending her time on television's most popular show after two years. Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler said the same thing on Thursday.

That means the show's judging panel is down to one, Randy Jackson, and there are reports that he may take a different role on the program moving forward.

Fox's "American Idol" has been TV's most popular program for nearly a decade. But it slumped severely in the ratings last season, and producers are looking for a way to shake things up.
