Jennifer Lopez Says ‘No’ to ‘Idol’ J-Lo Covers

Now that Jennifer Lopez is an official judge on American Idol, she is executing her power!

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”?

Still, Lopez says it’s all about helping the kids, and not about being mean now that Simon Cowell is gone.

“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.” 


What do you think about J-Lo’s no cover policy? Should she let ‘Idol’ hopefuls belt out her tunes? Let us know in the comments!
