LOS ANGELES, Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Jennifer Lopez's boyfriend Casper Smart told E! News the "Jenny From the Block" singer would return as host for the 13th season of "American Idol."

Thinking Fox had already made the announcement, Smart confirmed the news to E! Friday.

The Season 11 host took a break from the reality show last year, but a source told E! she wanted to take back her hosting duties so she could have more time for new film and television projects.

"And, of course, her twins are starting school this year and she will have time for her family," said the source, whose name was not reported.

The only judge returning from Season 12 is country singer Keith Urban. There's no word on who will be taking over judging duties for departing judges Mariah Carey, Randy Jackson and Nicki Minaj.

"American Idol" alums Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert have all been mentioned as possible replacements, as well as will.i.am, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Fergie.
