Only Jennifer Lopez can perform songs by Jennifer Lopez, says Jennifer Lopez… With Paula and Kara as judges in the past it was inevitable that American Idol contestants would try and impress them with one of their own songs performed in a new way. This year new judge J.Lo says she won’t be having any of that:
After hearing a few contestants mimic some of the 41-year-old singer’s No. 1 hits, J-Lo is warning them not to sing her songs if they want to make it to the next round.
“It was cute, super entertaining and flattering, but no,” she said to reporters Nov. 4 in Los Angeles.
Lopez claims she is only helping the amateur singers make a better impression on the judges, but who doesn’t love a good rendition of “Love Don’t Cost a Thing”?
Do you think American Idol 2011 contestants should be allowed to cover her songs? Maybe a few of them will start chasing Aerosmith songs instead if Lopez thinks her songs are above this competition. You’d think she might want to introduce a new age group to songs she released a decade ago! I guess not…
