ATLANTA — Well, one thing about season 13 of "American Idol" is that unlike last season, the judges seem to be getting along.
At an audition stop in Atlanta Wednesday, Jennifer Lopez said she's excited for people to see how funny Harry Connick Jr. is and how much he knows about music.
"He incredibly funny. His music education is so far beyond the normal person I think," said the singer. "What he has to offer to America...is the art of singing, the art of playing, all of that... It's gonna be something new for the show."
When Connick Jr. was asked about Lopez, he returned the pleasantries.
"No one really has any idea what it takes to be Jennifer Lopez. I mean people say, 'Oh, I want that.' Well, if they wanted it they would do what it takes to get there and they don't even have a 10th of a percentage of an understanding to do what it takes. These people that are auditioning for this show are so lucky to have a minute of (Lopez's) time, whether they make it through or not because the essence of 'American Idol' is looking for a new superstar and Jennifer embodies superstar."
