J. Lo sends 'Idol' audience wild with performance critique

'American Idol': Emily Piriz Takes On JLo

On "American Idol," Emily Piriz paid tribute to her Latin roots -- and to judge Jennifer Lopez -- with a performance of JLo's
"Let's Get Loud."

JLo said she loved the performance (she actually was lip-syncing throughout) but wished Piriz would have gotten a little more into it -- then demonstrated what she meant with a hard hair flip that sent the audience wild.

Harry Connick, Jr. said it was incredibly brave to take on the song, but thought Emily got lost in the big production.

Agreed. Poor song choice; poor execution.

I so agree with you. All thru the audition weeks I heard quite a few that were more talented than this group. No more for me, I'm bored.

I agree with grndbab....this is the worse group EVER. The judges really messed up this time, eliminating many, many really good performers for this bunch. At first I thought it was just nerves, but now its getting comical. And, what's worse, the judges are not giving valid critiques.....they are being passavists. I hate to think what Simon would be saying about these performances...now that X Factor is cancelled, maybe he'll come back as a guest jusdge and whip this group into shape....

I agree, this is the absolute worst bunch of finalists ever, and they had found some good talent, but they sent them home. I couldn't believe it. There are 3 guys are ok or good. It is never any good with JLo on there. I think Harry and Keith are trying to give them help and critique, but JLo doesn't know anything about music, she is just a performer. They have got to get better or they are done for. Horrible show anymore.

I couldn't believe they sent Spenser Lloyd home. He was, as they say "the full package." They will have to invite him back to get me to watch any more episodes.

American Idol is awful this year. Only 1 or 2 good performances so far. None are fantastic, I think they hand picked and picked the wrong ones.

They have already let two of the best get away. The girls FAR outshine the guys at any rate.
