Jennifer Lopez: 'American Idol' Judges Save Jessica Sanchez

Jennifer Lopez poses for the cameras as she arrives on set for the American Idol elimination show on Thursday (April 12) in Los Angeles.

The 42-year-old entertainer became emotional during the show when frontrunner Jessica Sanchez was declared as having the least amount of votes for the week.

During Jessica‘s last chance performance, Jennifer ran up on stage and stopped her midway through the song to tell her that the judges would be using their one save to keep her in the competition.

“Gimme that mic! This is crazy … you ain’t going home! Go sit down!” Jen said.

ARE YOU HAPPY that the judges used their save on Jessica Sanchez?

This is indeed SO sad. I have stopped watching AI because this show is wholly based on whose popular with the girls and whose not. It is certainly not a show based on talent anymore.

JLo should stop the disrespectful behavior for the sake of her kids. Her videos and performances are raunchy.
As far as American idol goes, America voted. The judges cant tell people what to like.

# 5

this was a conspiracy to boost their ratings! the number of views that jessica sanchez has alone can tell anyone that this person was no where near the bottom. AI was just trying to boost their ratings by making such a dramatic save with the most talented girl in the competition!

# 6

Spoken like one of the few Jessica fans. Time will tell.

# 7

I think the judges SHOULD have saved Jessica BUT, their reaction and running up to her was unprofessional. They have made Jessica their “pet” and the public showed their reaction. I voted for Jessica once but she had not impressed me the other times. American Idol even made a after show video of Jessica to post to fans on her twitter tonight. American Idol and Jessica posted it to all their followers. I think they are showing too much favor for Jessica and it may backfire again.

The bottom three were right in my opinion. I dislike the save and I agree the judges overreacted. Randy was obnoxious.

# 9

@Me3: few? uh have you been on youtube lately hit me back when you can explain to me how 2 million views equal only a few fans…

JLo looks HOT!!!!!!!!!! She brightens up American idol. I like Holly and Colton.

Time will tell. Bye bye to the “hard worker”. Lol

Why would anyone vote down my comment? I like Colton and Phil and Elise. Jessica tries to be beyonce. No originality. Not genuine. Maybe she just needs to mature.

People need to watch the Voice. It’s a far superior show to AI, both talent-wise, format-wise, and judge-wise.

@Shelly: and Phil tries to be like Dave Matthews or every other white guitar playing guy, and Colton like every other commericial pop/rock guy in existence.. are these ppl that original lol

I agree that the judges marching on the stage was so over-dramatic. Also Jessica knew she was safe because the smarty Steven Tyler blurted that they were gonna use the save minutes before the eliminated contestant was even announced :P

Running up to the stage and telling the world, we, the voters got it all wrong was an insult. Don’t we have the right to vote on who appeals to us? If those three were in the bottom then too bad, their fans need to step it up for them. I don’t think its fair for the rest of the performers and their fans to be berated by the judges because we vote for who we like.
I’m glad there will be no more saves.
We vote for who we want to win……nobody has the right to tell us who that person should be.

@Shelly: @Shelly: why dont you go on American Idol and sing then if you know it all

Hey did she design that dress for her Kohl’s line?? Oh wait she only wants the regular folks to buy that so she can pay for her and her boy toy to wear REAL designer clothes!

She Stinks! @ 04/13/2012 at 6:33 am

JHO Bag got emotional because she found out Britney Spears is going to make more money than her on another show. She only gets emotional when it has to do with herself. She doesn’t give a crap about anything. Who does JHO Bag think she is – let the public vote and let them get kicked off. Just sit down and shut up you low class no talent trash.

guys, have a heart, this is not about you, it’s about this young girl who strive so hard to get where she is right now. the world is already full of hatred, let us all be nice.

Not a fan of Jessica. Big voice but lacks style and sense of self as an artist. She’s just a good imitator, like Jennifer Hudson – who’s only good at singing other people’s songs.

I think this episode is scripted. With the millions of fans jessica sanchez all across america has, i dont believe she garnered the lowest votes. This is a gimmick by the show to boost its ratings. But still i believe Jessica Sanchez should emerge the winner, she interprets not-so-known songs in such a manner the world begin loving and noticing these not-so-known songs. She has the talent to reinvent the original music of the song and make it amazingly adaptable and very pleasing to the ear of its listeners.

I only agree with Elisa and Jessica in the bottom three. Let’s all remember, the voters are mostly young people. Jessica performs like a Vegas lounge singer. She needs to take it down a notch with the theatrical performance. Elise is not at all attractive or youthful enough. I think Skylar or Colton are going to win.

@Tiana: Most of those views on youtube originate in the philippines, not the usa. Anyone with phil blood on ai and that whole country gang busts them on youtube. Millions of fans,i dont know about “fans” being the most accurate word.
