"American Idol" was a love fest for the judges last season, but Jennifer Lopez says this season things have gotten more heated.
People reports the singer told "Idol" host Ryan Seacrest on his radio show that she and fellow judges Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler have already butted heads.
"Me and Randy and Steve got into our first fight," she told Seacrest. "I got really, really upset."
It seems the argument centered around a young woman's audition for the show. Lopez loved her, but the other two judges were not as impressed. While Lopez was ready to vote on sending her through, Tyler requested another song and then he and Jackson nixed the singer.
"I thought I was being Punk'd," Lopez said. "[I thought], 'How can we let this girl go?' I was upset. When I believe in something … I knew this girl deserves the chance."
Our advice to the judges: Save your fighting energy for beating "The X Factor" in the ratings.
Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. Nevertheless think of if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this blog could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field. Very good blog!
CANDACE–ITS PHONEY FROM THE BLOCK..NOT JENNY FROM THE BLOCK.
Is that Jenny from the block still their. I just can't stand her phoney crap anymore. Simon Cowell will soon fix them. ha ha
no same againt miss jennifer lopez, because i became a fan after she did the beautiful selena, and i'm a black woman, who did not know selena before jlo did her, butanyway jennifer is a great dancer, and a good actress, but she can't sing for her life,so i bet she realy doesn't have a good ear for great singers either. I bet randy, and steve did not hear what jlo heard because they know talent.
Our advice to the judges: Nix JLo. She's a ratings prop. That doesn't mean she has good taste. (marc anthony cough cough.)
I used to like this show...and then Jordan Sparks won. I realized then that it was more of a popularity contest than about finding real true talent. I honestly think this show should be cancelled now. None of the winners since Carrie Underwood have been really successful and even the judges don't seem to really know where to go with the contestants. As far as the judges fighting I don't watch the show anymore but I hear about it and some people have said the fight was the most interesting part of it.
A difference in opinion is a "fight"? Way to hype a nothing story, CNN.
That kind of blatantly contrived reality controversy rises to the level of extreme corniness. Someone tell Lopez thanks, but no thanks. Idol doesn't need her help marketing the most successful show in TV history.
She is beautiful, the picture is adorable, and you trolls need to dive into a dumpster.
Jenny, you need to work on that thigh, outside high right !
Oh my.....she may be rich and famous and that is great for her! Really happy when people are successful on their own and not due to family money/fame/success. Truly not jealous at all but do have to say, If one can not speak nor sit properly, then maybe some of that money might be put to better use. The pic of her crossed legs and what it appears to be showing (who cares about the ripples) is really bad judgement for CNN to post.
you fool, yes you are. One never puts oneself first. So "me and Randy..." is not correct for TWO reasons: it should say, "Randy, Steve, and I got into a fight." You are an ignorant dullard.
honey, don’t cross your legs when cameras are around; cellulite, cellulite
I can see why Marc split....big old fake a ss smile....amongst other things!!!
After Simon and Paula left the show I never watch it again specially now that JLo is on trashy trashy ghetto ! never see it never will!
Jennifer Lopez is not beautiful ,she is just fake ,hair ,alshes,contact lenses,she is not the "most beautiful woman in the world" is all magic photos brushed were they take off all the bad skin etc. photos,her ex husband wife was a Miss America (not too prety too) but more prettier than Jennifer.I can't believe she was in the front of People magazine( oh well is just a magazine....).we have beautiful women here like Halley Berry ,Nicole Kidman ,Christine Brinkley,and many others ....she is in her 40's two kids she is not younger not more is just plastic surgery!
I wouldn't be surprised if the girl really did deserve to be dismissed. Jennifer Lopez isn't that great of a singer herself. I mean, she can carry a tune, but that's it. There's nothing amazing about her voice, so she probably would say a singer with a likewise boring voice deserves to go to the next round.
J Lo has ZERO talent at all.
Jen, hon since u broke it off with mark,u may be a little upset!!! Take it easy onus guys!!! Vote TEA!!!
That was nothing more than an AD for the next season of American Idol.
Look at the fat rolls on her thies, looks like a busted can of biscuits.
Hey everybody....Did you even look at the picture of what Randy is doing
LMAO randy!! I didn't notice what he was doing until you said to look, hilarious!! Do ya think he's trying to tell JLo how he reallllly feels about her?!? I think so! Steven and Randy are probably so sick of her and her trying to get her way all the dang time, self-absorbed fatty beeotch!!!
me don't fight, me like no fight, me like speak English.
When American Idol became American Country Idol several seasons back.
Put some more dress between your butt and the seat, Jen. That's how you get ants.
@B=dog is right, JLo's grammar is not correct."Me and Randy and Steve got into our first fight," <- Looks like Jenny from the block missed some english classesJ . Correct is Randy and Steve and I got into our first fight.
I never seen the episode but it shouldnt matter at all,the vote takes the toll unless its just men being feminists. Steve tyler maybe is jelous that his career is over and biggie at the end is just peeved off that lunch missed. It doesnt matter anyways as that young lady will get phone calls from other organizations that will inprove her career.
Lol, I wouldn't really trust her opinion regarding talent, either.
Also, I thought the headline said FIST fight. That would have been much more awesome.
she's got cellulite in the picture
This is not news, this is not even entertainment news, this is mindless idle chatter for those standing in line at a Wal-Mart...this is not even worth commenting on...oooops. Give your heads a shake people!!!
I enjoy A. Idol and can appreciate the chance it gives a youngster who would otherwise not have that apportunity. Everyone has a chance to make a difference by voting. I think the judges try to do a good job, but remember, no one is infallible. For the most part I think the public who votes gets it right. Try a little patience and be happy for the winner even if you don't agree; it's called "good sportsmanship".
To You Fool - You are obviously aptly named. J-Lo's English was not correct nor appropriate. Sentences are not started with an objective pronoun ("Me"). And, proper English would have her saying, "Randy, Steve, and I got into our first fight." Don't be so pedantic and call someone a "pompous tart", when it appears that yours is a case of "the pot calling the kettle black"... You must have been in JLo's mother's class to learn English. Both of you are incorrect.
Her thigh doesn't look as bad as Steve Tyler's neck and face.
lol..bunch of hype for ratings slumping. "Fight! fight! fight!"...lol
Hopefully it was with knives and to the death. Nice shot of the celluite on J-Lo's legs....
And I'll bet you have absolutley perfect legs.
More like the idol judges are doing their first publicity stunt. Sooooo transparent.
C'mon. They're gonna have to do better than this when it comes to invented controversies meant to draw attention away from the X Factor. Weak, desperate publicity stunt.
I think I see her brown starfish!
Seems to me I have seen pictures of much younger girl singers that have cellulite already! So being 40 years old is not the culprit, naive ones. And where do the men come off with criticizing? I can only imagine what they look like-perhaps a receding hairline and under 40?
Look at that nasty rump fat on here thighs......lmao!
Lopez has no qualifications to be on this or any show judging talent. She blew her way to where she is.
Anyone who believes that the sentence "Me and Randy and Steve got in our first fight" is proper grammar just does not know English grammar. The subject of a sentence, if it is a pronoun, should be in the nominative case; i.c., "I" not "me". However, it is extremely picky to expect anyone to use proper grammar all the time in conversation. All of us fail that test. I majored in English in college; however, I would never correct anyone else's grammar with the exception of my children–I'm always teaching them, but the rest of the world doesn't give a rat's behind about my opinions regarding their grammar. And, by the way, I know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but anyone who cannot see that J Lo is a beautiful woman needs to buy his next books in Braille.
"Me and Randy", ....."Randy and I",
Which of these sentences makes you NOT understand that she is talking about herself and Randy Jackson?
Come on language is about communication. If the message is received clearly and without ambiguity (attack this use of the word). There is a reason some people are anal retentive, just don't know what it is.
Whoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaares! Jennifer should concentrate on getting rid of a few tons off that butt!!
@b=dog, you are wrong! The grammar is very incorrect. Simple test: Randy and I, Steve and I, Randy and Steve and I....not Me and Randy (or even Randy and me, unless you're saying "Steve gave Randy and me black eyes." There is no way ""Me and Randy and Steve got into our first fight." Ever.
Totally a publicity stunt story.
YES, IT LOOKS LIKE J-LO IS SHOWING SOME ROAST BEEFDOWN BELOW–NO UNDIES!
On a judge of musical talent I put Jennifer Lopez's skills on par with a tree stump.
Who Cares! All This Entertainment, Sports and Celebrities Crap Is Useless! How is this helping your life?
keep arguing idol tarts...
Xfactor is gonna rip your bloody heads off...
I will be unleashing the truth soon on all the mo's...
Dude look like a pterodactyl
You me spit my drink out, lol. He's got a head that's worn out 3 bodies.
"You me spit my drink out, lol. He's got a head that's worn out 3 bodies"
Hahahahaha!! RIght on , AND a rented dick!
Is anyone surprised how quickly the X Factor snapped up Paula Abdul to re-unite with her psuedo-lover Simon Cowell?
Does anyone even remember who won last season? Didn't think so. How many "Idols" have really come from this contest? This show has no relevance.
Yea, that one trick country singer Scotty.
J-Lo's mom is an educator. I'm sure she knows proper english.
Not exactly a very flattering shot of Lopez. Ya might want to put the bacon cheeseburgers down Lopez and get some exercise.
JLO's FLAB and cellulite are showing in this pic-As far as her husbnad, Marc, she never really loved him. He was a rebound realtionship safe Latino-big time after Ben Affleck dumped her.Llook at pictures of her newly married to Anthony-she looks posed with fake smiles. It's not that Afleck is not a marrying guy-he is happy with jenniger and has a 3rd kid on the way. It';s just that JLO is an overrated diva and no where near as talented and "beautifu'l" as the media makes her out to be. She's mjust allright-ALL Marketing for IDOL.
One man screams into a mic, the other man just produces stuff. Listen to the woman who can actually sing.
By "the woman", do you mean Steven Tyler?
She can sing? Which woman?
Hey Jlo congrats on Dumping that troll you married , Now if you can just reduce a chunk off that big fat – – – of yours you may be desirable agian.
Did I really just click on this article??
I like JLo, but someone should tell the most beautiful woman (People Mag opinion) that just because her shirt is pulled down on top of her legs, that everyone can almost see her who-ha ..... bad photo JLo.
The last so-called winner was a joke. I'm done with AI, bring on X-Factor.
This is news on CNN.
How soon before Fox announces that next summer (the week after the SYTYCD finale, presumably), there will be a "showdown" between the X Factor winner and the Idol winner? Maybe they can call it "Battle of the Power Dialers."
Vimana found in cave in Afghanistan by U.S. Special Forces!!!
The action starts at about 6:50
Thank God I found this article, I have no idea what I would have done wtih my day if this information wasnt available ....
Jennifer, honey – pull your dress down and cover the cellulite in your legs. Yuk.
Way to go, Sue. I'm sure you are perfectly formed yourself, and who better to criticize Jennifer Lopez on her appearance? Troll.
Ditto to what Leafonthewind said.
She was kinda hot in Money Train, and Selena. Why is she still all over everything? The paparazzi needs to get to work and spoil this dump trash old bagged hore, once and for all. She isn't even talented...
Manufactured controversies are an integral part of reaity-based shows like this. This one is no different.
She was out-voted. She needs to get over it. That's why there are 3 judges.
J-Lo – just because someone sings better than you doesn't mean they deserve to be on AI. If that was the case, my grandma would be in the Top 10 – and she's a chain smoker.
"Me and Randy and Steve got into our first fight," First, you never put yourself before talking about other ppl with you. Second, "me" should be "I".
Well, woop woop, we just had our grammar lesson for the day, I guess.
You are absolutely correct. The proper sentence structure should have been " Randy, Steve and I".
DITTO DITTO DITTO on the oh your so sweet, you look so good... Can we get a JUDGE that has the **** to JUDGE !!!! We don't need all the goo goo gaw gaw stuff guys.. Randy used to have the guts, now all he does is the same thing
B O R I N G !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WAKE UP
This show is still on?
O for cryin' out loud, people, it's all about RATINGS! She's talking to Seacrest, who owns Idol, on HIS radio show! Her marching orders? "Make up a controversey. Get the buzz started."
You're exactly right. They are shaking in fear of X Factor. Simon Cowell's often crass but nearly always correct assessment of Idol's contestants has been sorely missed.
Last year finale is when I vowed to stop watching AI after 10 years. The show sucks now. I don't care for the judges and the talent is mediocre. I'll be watching "The Voice" and the "Xfactor" – Goodbye Idol.
I know the young lady Jennifer is talking about – I was there. I also know a few of the other contestants that made it thru with lesser vocals but a whole lot of "other stuff" revealed. She absolutely should have had a chance for Holloywood. And, by the way, she was called back to the audition location – only to pace and wait for one hour while being filmed – to be told "well, thanks for coming back – one of the executive producers really liked you – but they've run out of time." It was really a very emotional screwing!!!
That sounds really harsh. Poor kid, no one deserves that kind of treatment.
Besides, it's no longer American Idol, it's Country Idol.
It's not just Country Idol, it's Christian Country Idol. If you don't belong to the holier-than-thou club, forget about winning.
I have a feeling that this will be the last of American Idol once X-Factor airs.
That's what happened in England once X-Factor came on. Pop Idol was cancelled
J-Lo needs to GET over herself. It's about all 3 judge's opinions NOT JUST HERS.......SHUT up and just play nice. You are NOT the diva you think you are. I you were truly in the KNOW as they say...you never would have married that TROLL you married. Just because you had to have kids was no reason to get saddled with that TROLL.......Plenty of women have kids via test tube and are more happy! SHUT UP!
What are you rambling about? Leave her marriage out of it.
chitownlady- please oh please take your own advice.
Who cares? I clicked thinking it was a fist fight or something actually interesting. Unless one of the judges sends one of the other judges to the hospital, it's the same BS. American idol is a complete waste.
Yeah, I was hoping for a cat fight between Steven and JLo with lots of clothes ripping and hair pulling. (Unfortunately JLo would probably win).
You are a complete waste.
I didn't care for Jaylo at all ! Tyler made me lol at the things he said that got covered up. You could still read those big lips. Randy is Randy, always the same. Get rid of Jaylo and put Simon with the other two and that could be interesting !
IT'S THE BEST OUTTA 3 JENNIFER...YOU LOST. MOVE ON-
Couldn't stand any of those 3 morons last year. THere wasn't a single criticism offered to even the worst performer. It was all..."you look gorgeous..I love your dress...Good job". Grandma Tyler just had the same bit for every single performance..."that was beautiful...you're beautiful". Of course the main idiot Randy was just unbearable with.."in it to win it"...and Yo YO Yo....dawg...sssup"? Can't wait for X-Factor and Simon who offers genuine feedback to the performers. Last years AI was a joke.
For someone who seems to hate the judges & the show, you apparently still watched it... a LOT.
Could not agree with you more. This show is so contrived, it makes me sick. People acltually believe Seacrest is reading real votes. This show is so controlled. Who? validates the votes. Idol kissed the a--s of Nashville by putting two, not one, two country singers thru, why, because Nashville, (country music) is now main stream. These (3) ljudges are total idiots. How do you pay these people millions of dollars for their advice. Randy is an idiot, nice guy, but an idiot. Lopez/Tyler are on a self lindulgent trip. Why do I have to sit their and wathc Lopez promote herself. Someone out there needs to challenge the voting.
I totally agree. The lack of differentiation from the judges from a mediocre performance vs a great performance created problems when some got voted off prematurely. It was really boring. Randy tried early on to give criticism, but gave up. Jennifer wanted to be the "nice judge" and popular to sell her new CD (I'm shocked that she's coming back this year.... must have got a nice contract). Stephen Tyler just totally mailed it in. He served absolutely no purpose. Loved everyone. Hugs and kisses all around. Even creepy kisses for teen girls. Unfortunately, ratings were good. So the network thinks everyone loved it. They don't care about the comments on blogs.... they care about ratings. Until the ratings tank, they'll never do anything about the mess they've created.
The show is now a very sad parody of its former self. The downturn started when they brought in that niosy opinionated woman Diguardo something (who strangley enough was still miles better than the current crop), then Paula left, then Simon left. I tried watching the last season for a bit, but then just got sick of it.
JLo should not be judging anything, she is NOT a GOOD judge. Does anyone remember who won last season by the way?
At the begaining of last years Idol Jennifer was a complete Sweetheart. She was really likeable and I felt I was wrong for thinhing she may be something else. By the end of the show she was a complete Diva .....a Jerk ....areal As*hole! This year the 3's ego's will be out of control and will bring the show down. No way will the show or ratings be as good as last year. Is it to late to finlly get rid of Randy?
Her Scientology OT levels must be kicking in . . .
Whatever Randy is great! Jo Looooow is a ego maniac whining baby, she doesn't get her way oh so what! There are 3 judges for a reason and her trying to control the voting and decisions will make this season a totel disaster. Keep her on her leash where she belongs, she is a power freak and will ruin a great show if they don't put her in her place.
and now a royal decree: peace and goodwill to all who travel here.(as long as you behave yourself) we will not cast the first stone, but we hurl it back at great speed
You have to be the worst troll in the history of trolling.
A friendly troll? Get outta here, making me sick.
A troll that announces he's trolling? Kinda defeats the purpose, right?
First! I claim this spot for the trolls!
Sorry, Grothnar, but you are far too genial and benevolent to be a true Troll. I dub thee First Gnome of the Realm.
"Me and Randy and Steve got into our first fight," <- Looks like Jenny from the block missed some english classes
I hate to point this out, but it seems to me that in the intro picture with J-Lo's legs crossed, is she not wearing undies? The ripples in her leg are gross, but did anyone else notice what else is going on there? YUCK!!
@B=Dog Before you go around loftily mocking somone's misuse of the English language, make sure they're actually misusing it first, you pompous tart. While there are better ways she could have worded that sentence, her grammar is actually correct. I suggest you follow your own advice, and take a class or two.
I'd hit it. Y'all haters move on.
@Joey – You've grown up in the 'airbrushing of women' generation. Do you not know what real women look like? And her legs aren't gross, she has beautiful legs.
@Joey – You do realize J-Lo is over 40 right? I can't speak for all women over 40, but for myself.. I WISH I had her body, lol
Hope you get over your extreme cellulite sensitivity or get rich before you are over 40, otherwise you'll be very lonely, lol
I like corn dogs, gladiator movies, rainbows, chaps, tight boy pants, and all my friends are emo's. just saying.
I agree with your comments about the boring judges. I guess no one wants to be the bad guy. Simon told it like it was. I do think JLo is still hot though. She might have some cell but she's 42 years old. Not that 42 is old but she does look pretty good for her age.
Sure it's not Queen of the Trolls?
Sorry, "Idol" hasn't been the same without Simon. The X factor will kick it's butt.
Yeah Joey, I did. Never could understand how this gal got voted as one of the most beautiful women in the world. Somebody must have got paid. I think she's fat, especially her legs, always have.
Are the rating that bad, they are trying to create one of those he said she said?
you fool & b-dog – hey I don't think that's grammatically correct either. "Me and Randy and Steve got into our first fight," seems wrong for quite a few reasons. and + and like that is bad, starting with "me" is bad. She should of said "Randy, Steve, and I got into our first fight." – correct? But then again I could really care less – I know what she meant and since she looks so hot I'll give her a pass...hahaha
I remember the only time I watched Oprah's show it was many years ago, one time she said…”.she don't like it”, that was it for me, it sounded so ignorant, unable to speak correct English, so, I never watched her show again. It seems that in this country many celebrities are English challenged people. They are rich and famous because of luck, or other type of skills but not because their English is perfect.
@You Fool, there is nothing correct about her grammar. Remove Randy and Steven from the sentence. If saying "Me got into a big fight" sounds right to you then God bless.
I refuse to watch or buy anything Steven Tyler endorses or works on...that sicko perv got a 16 year old girl pregnant when he was in his 20's, then forced her to have an abortion...he is a sick pedophile and should not be on any tv show, let alone one where he is in contact with children. Pervert...sicko...he should be neutered.
