Age Appropriate? Jennifer Lopez Shows A Lot of Skin on 'American Idol' (PHOTOS)


While American Idol is normally about the contestants on the show, it was hard not to notice the, um, revealing outfit that Jennifer Lopez wore on last night's episode.

The 42-year-old mother of two, who is currently dating 24-year-old dancer Casper Smart, wore a silver gladiator-style dress by Hervé Léger that showed off her abs -- and also gave viewers a tease of what was underneath the dress. (We'll leave that to your imagination.)

While the dress was eye-popping and admittedly stunning, we're not quite sure if it was appropriate to wear on a show like American Idol.

What do you think? Check it out in our gallery, plus more of J-Lo's Idol fashions from season 11, then sound off in the comments!

    Well I think she looks great in that dress, black bandage dress, and black matching heels. It suits her just fine.

    She looks fantastic at the age of 40, I wish I could look like that. I'm 58 and have a killer body too, but I'm alittle more buff than her, a bodybuilder of course but not overly sized. And her abs are awesome in that dress and she can wear anything she wants, why not she's got the body for it!

    obviously the age is in your mind she doesn't look 40 at all, so if she looks good on it why she can't wear it. She looks awesome

    it's going to be an interesting 21st century finally ,when so many hollyweird stars suddenly begin dying off like beastie boys members//, suddenly fame and the millions they spend on fashion won't seem very important and they'll be searchng to spend lthose millions instead on that whatever it is they think will extend their lives on this earth. these stars are just people.but they honor one another as though there's something more than human instlled //

    I completely disagree. What is disgusting about a woman being comfortable in her own body? I absolutely hate the phrase "age appropriate" I can understand if we are talking about a 12 year old child, but a grown woman should be able to wear whatever she feels comfortable and confident in.

    as long as it fits her well she looks great, but some of those super tight skirts and dresses just look like she's wearing a size too small and it's not attractive.
