We're told J.Lo became so overwhelmed with emotion, Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler had to talk her through it. According to our sources, once J.Lo composed herself, hair and makeup had to swoop in to give her a little touch-up.

Medina was the contestant who brought along his disabled fiancée to the audition. We're told she was not there for the elimination.

As of today I wonder what is the true reason american idol cut Chris Medina. I don't buy it was his lack of singing ability when they take contestants to the top 24 who don't even remember the words to the song they are singing, or promote a likeable and cute choir boy who isn't pop american idol culture.My guess its something legal or are they removing him because he is so popular that he might get a large percentage of the vote against who they want to win.

OH MY GOD #43 WHAT YOU WROTE WAS ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING. THIS IS A FORMAT TO WRITE ABOUT AMERICAN IDOL, NOT ABOUT A BADLY INJURED PERSON. I REALIZE EVERYONE IS ENTITLED TO THEIR OWN OPINION, BUT THAT STATEMENT, OPINIONS ARE LIKE ***HOLES FITS YOU PERFECTLY. WHY CAN'T PEOPLE STAY ON THE SUBJECT AT HAND, INSTEAD OF MAKING IT ABOUT SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. THIS POST IS SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT THE SHOW, AND NOTHING ELSE. I HAVE NEVER POSTED ANYTHING BEFORE BUT FELT I HAD TO, AFTER EVERY THING I HAVE READ ON THIS ONE. UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
