jennifer lopez idol finale 2014

Jennifer Lopez may be in full promo swing for her tenth studio album ‘A.K.A.’, but on tonight’s ‘American Idol’ finale, the ‘I Luh Ya Papi’ performer opted to show some other artists’ tunes some luh as well.

First taking the stage to perform her newest single ‘First Love’, she was later joined by fellow judges Keith Urban and Randy Jackson, Lopez led an old school medley that featured covers of Cyndi Lauper‘s ‘True Colors’ and Fleetwood Mac‘s ‘Go Your Own Way’.

Showing ‘Idol’ hopefuls how the pros do it, see how Lopez and co. fared below:



 

That ‘First Love’ breakdown?  The only thing worth remembering from this year’s finale.

    • Mimi Carey May 21, 2014

      Lmao

  2. Mimi Carey May 21, 2014

    Who?

  3. Christobal26 May 21, 2014

    WOW!!!! Who knew JLo had that in her! I preferred that performance over her First Love performance, which was pretty awesome too! Her and Keith killed it!

  4. Fluorescent Beige May 21, 2014

    She SLAYED that first love performance omg Mariah could never

    • lambily May 21, 2014

      Mariah been there done that.. NEXT! When J-ho can sing If its over LIVE like Mariah at the grammies, holla at a n****.

  5. Stephy Tha Lambily May 21, 2014

    She is doing so great this era. Everything ON STAGE is perfect. Ugh to bad I hate her voice & music. I really want to like her but her music is just ugh…

    • King_rico May 21, 2014

      I feel u babe !!
      But love J-Lo for who she is not something
      U want her to be .
      Not everyone has a huge singing voice .
      Just saying .
      She’s great at wat she does <3
      Not the best but delivers

      • Stephy Tha Lambily May 21, 2014

        It’s not about big voices! I LOVE Madonna’s catalog of music & she sounds TERRIBLE live but her catalog still slays me hard. Especially, the “EROTICA” album. Anyways, I love all types of artist but for some reason I never could get into J-HO I mean Lo…
        Ps. Janet Jackson has the most tiniest voice EVER but I love her albums not just singles…

      • Sheezus May 21, 2014

        You are always shading Janet’s voice. She wasn’t a gospel singer like you’re always going up for, but she knew how to utilize her voice. Her f****** sweet ass tone, harmonies and vocal arrangements (that she did herself) were always on point!! Janet wasn’t a weak, flat singer like Ciara and co. Don’t get it twisted BOO.

      • Stephy Tha Lambily May 21, 2014

        Oh, I bow down to her LITTLE vocals. Her voice makes my hurt melt. I always gave credit to Janet’s voice. Just because im saying little or tiny does not mean its TERRIBLE! This song slays me tho…

    • BubblePopElectric May 22, 2014

      Yassssssss Jennifer! I am forever slayed!

  6. eric May 21, 2014

    I blasted this all day yesterday. I seriously love it and I can be very critical.

  7. RIH-CONIC May 21, 2014

    It was incredible. Jen is consistently trying to reinvent herself. The Idol Medley performance showcased an entirely different side of JLO. …No negativity please!!!!

  8. RIH-CONIC May 21, 2014

    that’s what I call how to dance beyonce could never make something like this and she is 44 this is crazy!

    • King_rico May 21, 2014

      But when will Rihanna??
      Beyonce has done better tho..
      Talking about no negativity my ass

      • RIH-CONIC May 21, 2014

        rih is not a dancer… and beyonce think she is that is the problem, you should love some jennifer, thanks to her exist copyonce. End of discussion, good night!

      • XYZ May 22, 2014

        to be honest, beyonce was never that good of a dancer… she had some good choreography that she always repeats. but j.lo is a trained dancer and can do some freestyle if she wants to. i never saw beyonce as a “dancer”, she can move a little and knows how to use so that it looks actually more than she does…

        I love me some J.Lo, went to one of her Dance Again-Tour and she is really one of the greatest live. I just can’t get into her new songs…somehow she does not have an ear for a hit (like Rihanna for example – cause that girl knows a hit when she hears it)

  9. FutureCIARA May 21, 2014

    Mariah could NEVAH!

    • Talenti May 21, 2014

      Ciara could NEVAH book a f****** stage

      • lambily May 21, 2014

        Anyways… People are entitled to their own opinions so we all win, to me though the only reason why people THINK whitney was is
        1. She had thick vocal chords
        2. She sweats and show emotion in her performances.
        3. She is loud.
        4.She practice dramatic pauses.
        5. She came First.. Of Mariah was from the 80s and Whitney from 1990 then the world would know the TRUTH. AND… Mariah practicED 2 and 3 + she had her own unique point come on.. I not even mentioning whistle register is overrated but when can whitney sing “Forever” or “You and I” people open your eyes, Mariah from 92-94 was more powerful than whitney and raw. 95-96 was just flawless.

    • lambily May 21, 2014

      Mariah been there done that d-_-b Check Mariah Carey- If its over @SNL… Not even Whitney could eva, never mention Copifer Snorpez 🙁 Btw… Ciara has an average voice and how many octaves again 0.5? Brotha Please!

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 21, 2014

        Gurl bye! Whitney is in her own lane. Leave her name out your pressed mouth!!! #FakeLamb

        I agree with the last part of your comment though.

      • Stephy Tha Lambily May 21, 2014

        Whitney Houston’s voice was SUPERIOR every way than Mariah’s. And don’t forget that!

      • Sheezus May 21, 2014

        Whitney will forever be #1 based off of her live performances alone!!! It’s nearly impossible to watch a live Whitney show and not be mesmerized. She wasn’t from this planet. Mariah is #2 and no one else can touch them!!

      • Stephy Tha Lambily May 21, 2014

        Aretha Franklin was a better live singer & so was Chaka & Patti than Whitney Houston & Mariah Carey tho…

    • lambily May 21, 2014

      Honestly Whitney was NOT in her own lane 🙁 she only sustained notes in her lower belting range and growl with them(Mariah did that) I have not seen NOTHING that Whitney can do that mariah can’t, but when it comes to what Mariah can do….. I would have to write an essay… Check Mariah Carey-daydream tour. Enough said btw Mariah started the whole RnB movement. Whitney did nothing special, she could sing though 🙂 but NOT BETTER than…

      • lambily May 21, 2014

        Noooo!! Based off Patti and Aretha style, anyone can do that… They MIX their voices same s*** Adam Lambert does.. Mariah and whitney actually belt(even though whitney raises her larynx in her upper register) ya’ll only praising cause she is dead, when Mariah is gone HOPEFULL 1000years from now, ya’ll will confess.. Name ONE song whitney sing that mariah can’t… I will name around 40 that whitney can’t people get real! And as for proof.. Here.. m.youtube.com/watch?v=kKREbxDt9Ms

      • Stephy Tha Lambily May 21, 2014

        Huh? You are delusional! Whitney Houston could slay Mariah Carey live & sing her under a table!

  10. J-NO May 21, 2014

    J-Heaux being SCHOOLED about music. THis is your Billboard “musical icon”. LMAO. This model with a mic has no knowledge of music. Musical icons and idols, real ones, know how to arrange, write and compose music.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pH9l8KlcuBA

    • Sheezus May 21, 2014

      But that had nothing to do with writing, composing or arranging music wtf are you talking about? JLo has always gotten vocal lessons so she knows the basics about singing. Not every singer knows the fancy terms he used! #IRRELEVANT

  11. lambily May 21, 2014

    People stick to their craft… Beyonce has done BETTER than Lopez, honestly.. Beyonce can dance and before you start, no Mariah is not a dancer she is a singer. Riri now…. Girl what’s her occupation? A stripper?

  12. J-NO May 21, 2014

    Jennier Lopez has stolen music and concepts from SEVERAL other artists. She is a thief, just like Beyonce.

  13. Truth May 21, 2014

    Jennifer Lopez is physically pretty. Other than that . . . . . . No talent. Can’t sing, can’t act. She shoulda stayed Janet Jackson’s backup dancer.

    • TANYA May 21, 2014

      guurlllllll did you see these performances?, please watch it and then you are able to talk

    • lambily May 21, 2014

      I not a Jennefer fan but actually she really is pretty, I’m gay and I would totally have a night with her, as for talent, she has BASIC singing skills and get out of here she can act!

  14. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 21, 2014

    Not this flop Stan still clinging to JLO after her nasty ass got clocked for being a level 10 clinger. Anyway, I’m not here for these random fake “Lambs”. I don’t know why these pressed Bey Stans are always trolling under Mariah fan names! Bye!

    I’m not even gonna watch this performance. I’m pretty sure it’s the same shiit! I wish her luck with this new era. Hopefully she can gold because Love?’s certifications are rather dreadful.

    • Stephy Tha Lambily May 21, 2014

      Speak Dat Truth! Even tho you dislike me I still love your comments on other artist. Even tho your soooo delusional about the CURRENT Mariah Carey…

      • lambily May 21, 2014

        Girl you are so fake, you are not a lamb, obviously a beyonce Stan, your #Thirsty and seeking attention, there, you got it, now move on so we can breathe fresh oxygen.

      • Stephy Tha Lambily May 21, 2014

        I would’ve liked that reply to be from Slayriah. Not you… Ugh!

  15. Sheezus May 21, 2014

    J. Lo is a triple threat and does what she does well! She doesn’t have a big hollering 90s ass voice, but she can put on one hell of a show, and notice she sings LIVE unlike others.

    • Stephy Tha Lambily May 21, 2014

      I see no lies. On the last run-on sentence.

      • Sheezus May 21, 2014

        Run on sentences don’t have commas #2ndgrade

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 21, 2014

      JLO sings live? Please…

      • Sheezus May 21, 2014

        Did she not in the posted videos? Oh. Stop trolling for once ugly

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 21, 2014

        Ugly? Lol no need to be mad! You made it seem as if JLO is ALWAYS singing live when that is far from the truth! Who is trolling? I’m the only real Lamb on this post right now btw!!

  16. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 21, 2014

    I just saw that DC post. Gosh that Digger Bey creature is such a trashy ghetto mess. Someone needs to take that bitchh out the damn zoo and put back in the wild where it belongs.

    • DIGGER BEY May 21, 2014

      Bitchh STFU! Why are u trolling TGJ looking for DIGGER BEY???? You mad that u can’t fawk with me????? Lmaoooooooo #MY PATHETIC STAN

  17. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 21, 2014

    “Run on sentences don’t have commas #2ndgrade”

    *screams*
    *exits*

    • Stephy Tha Lambily May 21, 2014

      I’m so glade you still be checking out my convo’s tho…

  18. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) May 21, 2014

    Btw, this isn’t about Mariah/Whitney! This is about Jennifer! #Stayontopic I hate you fake Stans always trying it! UGHH!!

    *exits*

    • Stephy Tha Lambily May 21, 2014

      Bitchh, how many times you gonna exit…

  19. lambily May 21, 2014

    Mad cause we speaking about REAL singers, and the door is open, I don’t know who let pets in house anyways. Bye.

  20. grump May 21, 2014

    NOBODY IS BUYING THIS SONG. Wow I wonder what this album is gonna be like. It didn’t happen after billboard and it still ain’t happening now. #114 on iTunes.

  21. DIGGER BEY May 21, 2014

    Slayyyy Jlo!! Jlo is killen this era in performances! And First Love is my Sh*t! I haven’t bumped to an Jlo song like this in awhile. Tina Turner, Janet, Paula, Jlo and THE QUEEN! Queens of The Stage! Oh and why is somebody preeeeeeeeeeesed stans always trolling Jlo posts????

  22. Mark111 May 22, 2014

    J.Lo as a dancer never grab my attention. She pretty plain outside of her sassa mess and even that is nothing an Latina can’t do.

    And for that LAME up there, Whitney was a way better vocalist LIVE than MC ever was. MC NEVER hit her notes on the spot LIVE, everything you’re talking about was in a studio, that’s why she will always be a Studio Vocalist. #Smoke&Mirrors

    • Stephy Tha Lambily May 22, 2014

      You are so delusional. How in the f**** did Mariah Carey NEVER hit her notes LIVE. Thats like saying Aaliyah only was able to dance in her music videos but NEVER LIVE. Something wrong with your ears & eyes. Oh well… #Delusional-As-Hell.

      Ps. That person posted a LIVE video of Mariah Carey singing “If Its Over” LIVE on SNL… But of-course, you don’t wanna make yourself see Mariah sing live. So, you can continue to delude yourself into a world of Mariah Carey never sung her notes live…. Chile….

    • Stephy Tha Lambily May 22, 2014

      Also, stop listening & kissing LaChele’s ass on YouTube…

    • RoyalKev May 22, 2014

      @Mark111

      I agree, Whitney was a beast live! Hands down she’s the best vocalists that ever lived. Her performance level live was unmatched. She sung with such clarity (perfect diction) and had such a powerful chest voice, but she wasn’t a screamer (like Patti — who’s just as vocally strong. No offense). Whitney’s skill (when it came to stretching notes) was so brilliant. What I actually admired most about her was that she had total control over her voice. It wasn’t just full at the end of a song during the climax, she always gave a full, rich vocal throughout a performance in her prime. It wasn’t frail or underwhelming in parts. There are a lot of great vocalists that came after her (Toni, Brandy, Bey, MC and Celine — in their prime), but I agree that Whitney takes the cake!

  23. Stephy Tha Lambily May 22, 2014

    @Mark111, trips me out with this “Mariah Carey NEVER sung live”!

    So, what exactly was this? Or is another singer behind the curtains singing for Mariah Carey?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKJqd09-fmk

    • Stephy Tha Lambily May 22, 2014

      She even added an whistle, while already doing an full on scattering belt. She hit an E7-G#6 (low – Whistle) during this LIVE performance. Which was NOT done on record AT ALL. But of-course @Mark111 says Mariah Carey NEVER sung her notes LIVE… lol

  24. JuanR May 22, 2014

    That is how you do it!

  25. RoyalKev May 22, 2014

    JLO, JLO, JLO! She was everything on that Idol finale. I loved her 10 years ago and it’s great to see that she still has such high standards when it comes to performing in 2014. She has amazing energy and stamina as a performer! Wow.

  26. Basura Caliente May 22, 2014

    Look at the super slayage from a woman at the fawking age of 44!!!!

    Beauty – Check
    Energy – Check
    Choreo – Check
    Stage presence – Check
    Entertainment – Check
    Live singing – Check
    Natural talent – Check

    When will Beyaki?
    When will Mooriah?
    When will Ci-error?
    When will Yelly perry?
    When will R******?
    When will whaledele?
    When will lady poop poop?

    Oh yeah Jlo has KIDS but has more energy than all these hoez listed above. Beyaki is at child #1 but cannot perform without lip syncing and she already looks 39 after one kid. That blowfish Mooriah would rather be photoshopping her pictures than actually getting fit. All R****** does on stage is pat her stanky pu$$y. The remaining ones will put you to sleep.

  27. Suicide Blonde May 22, 2014

    Wow, these performances are awesome, she sounded good, she don’t have a big voice but she always sounds good when sings live, that’s more than others, she knows her voice, the medley was everything, Keith on the guitar, out of this world. Most rock artists write, produce, play instruments but are lazy on stage, bad voices but yet they are aclaimed by critics, J.Lo migh no have a big voice but she is a beast on stage, that’s talent, you can put Jonh Lennon on stage with her and she will outshine him, talent comes in all forms, specially in the entertaiment industry, J.Lo is a talented woman, mad because she’s beautiful, model with a mic, my ass, a certain fan base will always be mad because their idol lose her voice while J.Lo is still the best a what she does which is being a great performer, the other is not even a vocalist anymore.

    • Stephy Tha Lambily May 22, 2014

      Beyonce > J-Ho…

      • Suicide Blonde May 22, 2014

        Beyoncé has a better voice but they are on the same level when it comes to perform.

      • Stephy Tha Lambily May 22, 2014

        We will have to agree to dis-agree. Love you! 🙂

    • royalkev May 22, 2014

      Omg, Preach!

  28. jlove May 22, 2014

    wow jlo im loving your u so much … vocals sweet love that u have grown an trying things

  29. XtinaTheDiva May 22, 2014

    JLo slayed American Idol! She’s one of the best live performers on the planet.

  30. RihIcon(Navy Comm) May 22, 2014

    Iii wish you were my first hit!
    Cause if you were first there wouldn’t have been those second third or fourth flops

  31. JOHNVIDAL (Iconic chanteuse is coming) May 22, 2014

    Girl, you should have always been a dancer. You´re great at that. I mean, spectacular if we keep in mind you are 44 years old. But what else? Music? Singing? Songwriting? No nothing. This spectacular performance is the ultimate proof. Nobody will buy her music, as it has been happening for a decade.

  32. I love it!! May 22, 2014

    JLo, Madonna and Ciara are the BEST dancers in pop music. They rarely disappoint.

  33. Haris Mackic June 13, 2014
