Jennifer Lopez on American Idol: 'It's Time for Me to Go'

Originally posted 07/12/2012 11:00AM

Apparently all the buzz about fresh faces on the American Idol judges' panel is not premature.

Jennifer Lopez, who's been on the show for two seasons, appeared on Thursday's Today show and said that when it comes to doing a third season, "I am thinking that it's time for me to go."

But leaving the Fox show, which crowned Phillip Phillips the season 11 winner in May, won't be easy for Lopez, who, besides being mom to 4-year-old twins Max and Emme, is currently on tour with Enrique Iglesias and stars in the new animated movie Ice Age 3: Continental Drift.

Natalie Morales, co-host of the TODAY show, recently adopted a rescue dog named Zara. After a considerable amount of time spent without a dog at home (though two cats have kept the journalist, her husband and two young sons company), Morales has been reacquainting herself with the life canine.

While training the young pup comes with its challenges, Morales has reason to be patient with Zara. The look in her grateful dog's eyes is enough to forget even the biggest accidents.

Natalie Morales Adopts a Dog She Met on Today

As news anchor and cohost of the Today show, Natalie Morales has a job full of surprises. But the biggest one of all came this week, when she walked into a backstage production area and met a dog named Zara.

"Zara, she picked me," Morales tells PEOPLE. "I was playing with her and petting her, and she was so good with me already. I think she sort of said, 'Hey, I'm coming home with you.'"

Zara had come to Today with North Shore Animal League America to participate in a segment about pet safety and travel. The 1-year-old "muttigree" with a little spaniel and a little Lab had been rescued from a kill shelter in Georgia, and having already been trained, she showed off some tricks when she got to the studio.
