Jennifer Lopez the Latest to Quit American Idol

Guess 12 hours wasn’t enough time for American Idol to convince Jennifer Lopez to stay.

Lopez followed Steven Tyler out the door, calling into Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show on Friday to break the news.

“I honestly feel the time has come to get back to do what I do. I have put it on hold because I love Idol so much. You have a lot of other responsibilities and other things you want to do,” Lopez told Seacrest. ”We had an amazing run.”

That leaves just Randy Jackson (dog) and Seacrest as the show will scramble over the next two months to lure two new victims … err … judges.

Mariah Carey anyone?
