Now that Mariah Carey has taken Jennifer Lopez’s spot on American Idol, J-Lo has some words of wisdom for the new judge. She told Mimi to just be honest with the new talent and speak from the heart.
In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Jennifer said, “So long as she’s honest and speaks from the heart and just is herself, I think she’ll be fine. I always kind of just spoke right from the heart, and how I would want someone to speak to me if I was in that position. It’s just about being relaxed and being honest, and being yourself…If you try and think too much about what people might think or what you’re saying too much, I think you get lost.”
Now that the new judging panel is almost fully into place, Phillip Phillips is weighing in on the matter. He said, “I would say I hope they’re a little more critical. Because there were some times when I performed, especially on Time Of The Season, man, my ears went out, but that’s live television, I can’t just stop the song, so I just pushed through it as best I could and then they gave me good feedback and I was like ‘Come on guys, it was horrifying.’ So, I’d like for there to be a little more criticism on the show.”
