J. Lo kisses contestant after incredible performance

Jennifer Lopez Kisses Contestant After Incredible Performance

The theme was love on "American Idol," and afterJena Irene gave an incredible performance, she certainly felt some of that love from one of the judges.

Jena sang "Can't Help Falling In Love With You" by Elvis Presley for her third love-themed performance of the night.

JLo was moved and said Jena reinvented the song; Keith called the youngest "Idol" contestant "a species of her own" and a "musical platypus."

CarterMatt was loving Jena's performance, just ... maybe not as much as JLo.

"Jennifer Lopez freaking out was a bit much, but this really was fantastic. One of Jena's best performances, and one that truly is among the best of the season."

And MTV News was happy to see Jena back on the piano this week putting her own spin on the classic love song.

"[Jena] might have broken some hearts anew with her impassioned, goosie-inducing piano ballad."

Meanwhile, J. Lo has been getting some attention of her own, thanks her new song that's sure to be a 2014 summer anthem:

J.Lo just another FAT A that doesnt know anything but voice and the stupid thing she did last night and she still calls herself a judge, glad it wasnt one of my kids singing when she pulled that stupid trick. Jena just absolutely ruined a good song if this girl can sing then my dog can also he sounds better.

I watch AI periodically, I think the show has been getting worse and worse since Simon left. I think J-Lo was wrong in her actions on last night's show, which is not fair to the other contestants. It is very obvious the she and the other judges want Caleb and Jena to be the final two, which is not right since Alex has a much better voice and unique talent.
I like Harry as a judge especially since he said that he was on the show to judge and not to be a fan. I also was shocked to find out that there will be season 14 next year.
J-Lo needs to cool it she and the other woman judge (Keith) should learn how to be better judges, and give critiques that help the contestants. Be fair to Alex he's the best.

I think Harry is the only judge reacting properly. J Lo's action was unfair to all other contestants and the standing ovations are by Keith and J Lo are not normal actions by judges. Critique the performers and move on. Don't make the show about yourself - J Lo

Your exactly right!!!! She was rooting for CJ and he sucked, he was tone deaf, she keeps knocking Jess, and Gumby (forgot his name? Any hoot, she is going out of her way to sway America to vote for her own personal choice's Jena, and Calib

Some people can sing but they are not performers, there is a difference. Jess just stands there I know she's trying. I saw she was last night, Someone just needs to help her a little.

Ah, JLO, the phony of the century. # one, this young lady has a fair voice, but not one to get kissed over. After watching " old thunder thighs " fauning over this bunch of "wanna bes" my thoughts turned to, what ever happened to good singers. Maybe they should start the season over.
