Life is good for Jorge Nunez.

Not only is the aspiring singer a member of American Idol's final 13, but he's receiving support from a pair of hometown heroes.

This morning, Nunez  was a guest on on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM L.A. radio show when the host shared a text message from Puerto Rican icons Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. It read:

"Hey bro, just finished watching the show. This guy is really special. Please tell Jorge that Jen and I could not be prouder. We were in tears witnessing, honestly. Pure talent."

What was the Idol contestant's reaction to such support?

"That [was] so awesome!" Jorge told E!. "I mean... if they're famous here you really can't imagine how famous they are in Puerto Rico. They're like the biggest people ever. I love them. I'm so happy."
