"Idol" Kids Say J.Lo Is Bitchin', Not Bitchy!

4/11/2007 2:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Diana Ross, Gwen Stefani, Tony Bennett and Lulu (who?) can't hold a, er, note next to Jennifer Lopez -- at least in the eyes of the "American Idol" wannabes. TMZ has learned that the Idols' favorite mentor so far, has been J.Lo. Claro que si!
Jennifer Lopez
Sources with the production tell TMZ that the contestants were initially scared to meet La Lopez, based on reports of her alleged diva attitude, but after Jennifer spent time rehearsing their latin-themed numbers with them, the budding singers had nothing but praise for the singer/actress/dancer/producer/designer/jeweler/restaurateur/perfumer/three-time bride. Wepa!

We're told the "Idol" hopefuls thought Jen was "very personable," and that she gave great advice on handling the entertainment biz. Our source says Jenny from the Block kept it "real," and even sat on the floor with the contestants. Can you believe it, yo?

Who needs Grammys, when you got J.Lo style!

tony bennit is in a class by himself . he is an icon and the last of the great ones . that said jlo is the best of the younger set of entertainers . she and a few others are the future of hollywood and its link to the past .

I was impressed, and until now I've been no fan of hers. She gave solid, direct advice, on breath production, choreography, key change. My only complaint was that the clips seemed a little rushed, as though they only gave her 6 minutes w/each contestant.

J.Lo still looks beautiful. Give the woman a break, she is in her thirtys.
Trust me, people in her age range would kill to look like her, and have her shape.

It's too bad her attendance was wasted on poor performances of all the contestents. Hopefully, next year the panel will pick more diverse contestentss with more talent and charisma.

I enjoyed A.I. last night. Jennifer was real with these kids, you could see it there eyes that they were excited to be in the same room with her.

As for the other Britney, you are just jealous, because she is everything you are not.

J-LO CAN'T SING SO J-LO CAN'T COACH. POOR IDOL CONTESTANTS THAT DID NOT DO THERE BEST BECAUSE OF HER. POOR IDOL CHOICE OF COACHES. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN HER HUBBY MARC ANTHONY THE COACH. THEN THIS LATIN ROUND WOUND HVE BEEN KICKING. BIG MISTAKE IDOL.
