'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Has 'Idol' saved J.Lo, or has J.Lo saved 'Idol'?

Did you hear that People magazine has named Jennifer Lopez the World's Most Beautiful Woman?! Not bad for someone who, just last year, had a floundering music and movie career and was barely a blip on the celebrity radar.

These days, Jennifer Lopez is at the top of her game thanks to her gig as a sensitive, emotional judge on “American Idol.” But let’s face it – J.Lo isn’t the only one benefiting from it! “American Idol’s” having a great season after last year’s mess – ratings are strong since “Jenny from the Block” got on board.

I think J.Lo is a GREAT addition to the judges panel. She really cares, and it shows! Also, Lopez has never looked better and she is having one heck of a year. Congratulations to her!

So I’m asking today: Has “American Idol” saved J.Lo or has J.Lo saved “American Idol”? What do you think? Tell me below.

Here are some other big stories we’re fired up about on the show today…

Has Charlie Sheen been banned from “Two and a Half Men” for good, and what's up with Justin Bieber’s Israel controversy?

See you live at 5 p.m. ET and 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN!

    JLo is a beautiful woman but not natural – its pretty phony with all the fake hair and makeup but she keeps fit and works hard at the beauty routine so kudos for that ... but as an AI judge she's as useless as the rest of them.

    She started out pretty good but i think she is listening to her hubby Marc Anthony too much because now she's starting to babble alot of nonsense similar to the way Paula used to do. All the judges offer encouragement but little criticism so theres not much point in having them.

    I think JLo would be a distant memory without AI ... if she had turned down the judges spot she would definitely not be on the cover of People magazine !

    @Laura..seriousl..what does age have to do with this? Do you think people of her age and older should crawl into a hole and die? I bet she looks better than you at your age now and when you get to be her age. I'm not even a fan of J Lo. Seriously..s t f u about age! I have seen women in their 50's that looks better than some of girls that's in their 20's . I bet you are a fat piggy and you must be sitting at home right now chowing down on ring dings and cup cakes.

      This age talk is stupid. Tyler is an experienced performer, which was never part of American Idol in past years.
      Jlo is experienced as well, although I agree not as strong...but she is a music lover and that much is very clear.
      For those commenting negatively on her talent and age...I say that smacks of jealousy. She is fun to look at and I like her comments.

      It seems to me there are alot of Idol bashers who continually lament they will never watch idol again due to Simon and Pia. Do these same people ever accept change and eliminations by votes?

      This is music done hollywood style and I am glad I am finallly hooked on watching. Yes, I am a rock fan, hence my interest in watching (Tyler & James)

    I have mixed feelings about Jennifer Lopez. I stopped liking her years ago when it became obvious she was a self absorbed diva without that much talent as either an actor or singer but who had achieved fame and fortune for doing both. She seemed very phony, pretending to be Jenny on the Block. I definitely have liked her better since she has been on Idol as she seems sincere and does give good advice. However, she needs to accept her age at some point and not put out videos trying to compete for the teenage dance club market. Someone needs to tell her she is past that
    age! I prefer Steven Tyler. But they all need to give more constructive advice on actually being a pop star, not just singing well.

  46. Hmmm...

    The only thing that will save Idol is to change how they take votes. I think DWTS is close. Allow so many calls per phone, but, leave the judges out of the voting! Just my opinion.
