Ryan Seacrest: Idol Judges not revealed for weeks

Ryan Seacrest is believed to have claimed that the new judges to join American Idol will not be named for weeks.

The host of the Fox competition said that fans of the series might be waiting a while to discover who will sit alongside Randy Jackson when the show returns for its tenth season as well as saying that he is unsure of the lineup of the judges; whether there will be a four judge panel or a three judge panel.

The ninth season of the show had a panel that consisted of Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi and Ellen DeGeneres (who replaced Paula Abdul); however with Cowell announcing that he was leaving the show earlier this year and DeGeneres recently revealing that she had also resigned, rumours are circulating that DioGuardi will leave too although Fox has yet to confirm this.

A whole host of stars have been linked to the roles in the press including Jennifer Lopez and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler.
