Jennifer Lopez is Psyched for American Idol

by at .  Updated at .

We can't vouch for how excited Chris Sligh is that J-Lo will be appearing on American Idol in April.

But Jennifer Lopez herself is counting down the days until she takes the stage.

"I'm very excited," Lopez told TV's Extra in Las Vegas on Thursday. "I watched it [Wednesday] night. I have a couple favorites."

Lopez was one of the many A-list names Access Hollywood first hinted would appear on season 6 of Idol, which was later confirmed the FOX show. Gwen Stefani and Jon Bon Jovi are also on the lineup as guest mentors this season.

Lopez, who is expected to perform on April 11, reveals she'll sing "one of my Spanish songs. I think they're doing a Latin album theme night."

Is it too late to book Shakira, as well, in that case?

Until that date, Lopez - who was in Sin City with husband Marc Anthony - is busy promoting their joint film project El Cantante at the annual ShoWest convention. Could another family affair â€" kids â€" be next on the couple's agenda?

"You're going to hear from me first and it's going to be me in handcuffs, because (I'll run) down Sunset screaming like a madman," Anthony tells Extra. "It's something that's important to us and God will make it possible whenever He says."

Well, okay then. Of course, the pair could adopt its own Pak Thien Jolie and make it possible right now.
