    Jennifer seems so much more relaxed and real since we’ve last seen her. I enjoyed that and I expect to enjoy her with Keith and Harry on Idol.

    luckily, unlike The Voice, Idol isn’t about the judges :/

    JLo chatted 95% about her past and present career and like 5% advertising AI, maybe the real reason she was the guest there more than advertising her new video or the video posted here with that terrible dance-sequence. And her talk as a judge on the panel, I got the impression that she was more like saying “I had no choice but to do it” compared with Harry’s willingness to be part of the panel. He could be a good judge in particular, but he might be a little too nervous, fast spoken, irritating person on live TV,. Hope I’d really be wrong for the show’s sake but I see him more on the verge of Kara’s than Simon’s.

    Jennifer was lovely on Jay Leno!

    The 95% is really more Leno’s fault. He consistently does this where a celebrity comes on to promote a new movie, TV show etc. and he spends 95% of the interview talking about their puppy, or engagement ring, and brings up the movie in the last minute. I would much rather get 95% of the interview on the movie anecdotes and 5% on the puppy.

    This. It’s not jennifer’s fault. Jennifer has been promoting Idol all week. Jennifer loves Idol.

    By the way, the judges (incl. Jennifer) and Ryan will apear on Ellen tomorrow!
