Jay-Lo and Steven Tyler are leaving Idol. But there are reports that the split might be over budget cuts and not just the stars leaving on their own. Jennifer made $15 million and Steven made around $10 million. Though Idol is huge, ratings were down a bit and there are rumors that some purse tightening is needed. So, who will producers bring in? Looks like Miley Cyrus, Mariah Carey, Fergie, Adam Lambert, and Wil.i.am are being considered.
