Jennifer Lopez lost it on American Idol last night.

She barely got through the elimination of beloved Chris Medina before breaking down in front of Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler, afraid she didn't handle the news well and simply sad to see Medina go.

"After he left, it really hit me. I just couldn't believe that I had to deliver this news to this person who I felt had been through a lot and is going through a lot," Lopez told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show this afternoon. "I felt like I didn't do it well enough for him, to send him where he needed to go in his life and be okay. I didn't want to be part of that."

As for how Medina handled it? "With so much dignity and so much class," J. Lo said.

Regarding the selection of the top 24, Lopez understands that it plays a major role in future viewership.

"I think if we do a good job right now, people will tune in later and I think we're doing a good job right now. We're being honest, we're being real, we've having fun and I think that's all we have to do."

Five singers advanced to the semifinals on season 10 of American Idol last night:

  1. Naima Adedapo
  2. Clint Jun Gamboa
  3. Ashthon Jones
  4. Paul McDonald
  5. Haley Reinhart

But many viewers are talking this morning about one contestant who did NOT make the cut: Chris Medina, whose story of heartbreak regarding his brain damaged fiancee was featured on the show a couple weeks ago.

Jennifer Lopez delivered the bad news to Chris, tearing up as she explained the panel's decision and then breaking down in front of Randy and Steven as soon as Medina exited the room. It was raw, emotional stuff. Watch now:

Jennifer Lopez really is attempting a comeback.

As you may have heard, the former A-lister will judge American Idol this season, while also pushing a few new singles on the public. The first, titled "On the Floor," has been released online.

It's upbeat, it features (extended) guest rapping by Pitbull and, we're sorry to say, but this artist would have been better off living with Michael Vick a few years ago. Seriously, this is pretty bad stuff...

Before Jennifer Lopez can critique American Idol contestants this season, we're here to judge the singer and her style at last night's Golden Globe Awards.

As she tries to climb back on to the A-list, J. Lo showed up at the event and handed out hardware alongside Alec Baldwin.

Jennifer Love Hewitt, meanwhile, was also present because she was actually nominated for a Golden Globe. No, seriously! Alas, she lost out to Claire Danes in the category of Best Actress in a Television Movie. But could JLH make up for that loss with a victory in the following poll?

You tell us.

Having already sat in for numerous season 10 auditions, Steven Tyler has a clear idea of how he'll serve as an American Idol judge. And it won't be akin to a certain cantankerous Brit.

"I'm really not one for giving insults," Tyler says. "[Contestants] have a voice and I don't want them not singing to their kids when they grow up."

The show will likely feature fewer trainwrecks during its opening set of episodes, which should make things easier for Tyler. Below, however, this Christmas promo does give voice to those without a good voice:

As for his new partner in judging, Tyler has nothing but great things to say about Jennifer Lopez.

"First and foremost, she's a lady and she's not afraid to show that at any given time... she's exactly what I thought she'd be. She's street."

Well... okay then. Chime in now, readers: Are you excited about the addition of Tyler and Lopez to American Idol?

You can sue anyone here in America, but a lawsuit filed against Jennifer Lopez by the girlfriend of her first husband Ojani Noa may take the frivolous cake.

Claudia Vazquez filed a $10 million suit against the American Idol judge, claiming that Lopez "attempted to torpedo a movie" about Ojani Noa's life.

A few thoughts:

  • Is this the J. Lo sex tape he tried to peddle last year?
  • How would Lopez torpedo a movie about him exactly?
  • Who the HELL would watch a movie about OJANI NOA?!

Ojani Noa was one of several people briefly married to Jennifer Lopez.

Over the past few weeks, we've expressed our disdain over the young Jenner siblings posing for a supermarket tabloid, and over 13-year old Ava Sambora walking down the runway.

But these burgeoning stars are senior citizens compared to Jennifer Lopez's two-year old twins, Max an Emme, both of whom join their mother in a new set of Gucci ads.

"It was a totally special experience," Lopez told Us Weekly of the spread. "It's exactly why I'm excited to be a part of this. Now there are two Gucci spokesbabies for a beautiful cause!"

  • Too Young to Model
  • Gucci Family

The details of the cause are as follows: in honor of the collection, the company donated $1 million to UNICEF's Schools for Africa initiative. We certainly can't take issue with that.

The new American Idol team has been together for about a half hour, and there's already a report of dissention on set.

A source tells the latest issue of In Touch Weekly that Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Seacrest are engaged in a power struggle over such pressing items as who gets which dressing room.

“Ryan was the one who first suggested Jennifer, but now he’s starting to regret it, because she’s acting like she’s a much bigger star than he is,” said the insider. “Ryan knows the diva behavior is likely to get worse before it gets better. Producers are trying to get them to make peace, but their egos are both pretty big.”

American Fight-ol: It's reportedly J. Lo. versus Ryan Seacrest!
