American Idol judge, Jennifer Lopez, suggests that contestants don’t sing her songs.
Lopez is not impressed with contestants that attempt to win her vote by singing her songs.
“It was cute, super entertaining and flattering, but no. They know we’re not out to cut them down or make a joke of them. We’re trying to mentor them to the next step,” the pop diva told reporters Thursday in Los Angeles.
Lopez reveals that after visiting seven cities, they’ve found around 15-20 “real superstars who could be recording artists for sure,” adding that they’ve seen great country singers.
In true Idol fashion, though there are several great performers, there are also dozens of contestants that have to be sent home. Lopez reveals this can be quite emotional.
“I’ve cried. We get a lot of elation when we put them through and devastation, almost, when they’re not. But it’s been a ball,” Lopez said.
Yikes, can you imagine trying to impress Jlo by singing her song, then have her tell you “but no”? Leave the diva’s songs to her!
