Paul Zimmerman/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) — While chatting with ABC News earlier this week about her decision to leave American Idol, Jennifer Lopez suggested Jon Bon Jovi might be a good choice to fill her slot, but quotes a source close to the New Jersey rocker as saying that’s not going to happen.

TMZ quotes one Bon Jovi source as saying, “With all systems go for a new album and a mega-tour on the horizon, Jon wouldn’t be able to give those aspiring singers the guidance they deserve.”

“Jon wouldn’t commit to anything unless he can give 100 percent.  With planning for the next album already underway, he’s focused on the band,” the source went onto say.

Lopez had also suggested during her interview with ABC News that Bono or Mick Jagger might also be good choices to fill the Idol slot.  No word from Bono or Jagger yet.
