The 'I'm Into You' singer prepares for another series of the US show.

American Idol has managed to hold onto Jennifer Lopez as a judge for the new season of the talent show.

"It is such a positive reflection on what was a hugely successful season last year," show creator Simon Fuller said.

"From the very first day we knew we had something special," Fox's Mike Darnell added.

After Jen announced her and husband Marc Anthony are set to divorce, the 'On The Floor' star has been focusing on work, filming for new movie What To Expect When You're Expecting.

But J-Lo took time out to have a celebratory lunch with the American Idol crew, including judges Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler and show host Ryan Seacrest.

"So excited!! RT @ryanseacrest first lunch w/ the crew for @americanidol season 11," Jen tweeted.
