There are certain things which are just weird in a certain age. This is one of them. I’m sorry but we are all growing old. And pretending we are not is just pathetic and sad.

She Stinks! @ 03/21/2014 at 7:10 am

What an insult to real singers, this no talent trash was lip syncing and she didn’t even try to fake it. She looks so desperate and foolish. The set is so dated and she is embarrassing to watch. Sit down JHO, your time has passed. As always, JHO makes it all about her. What a joke!

Not only was it bad, it was endless, or seemed that way. But Jennifer isn’t the only one who was annoying last night, Harry wouldn’t shut up. His voice is getting as aggravating as Jen’s, too loud and shrill.

The song is the dumbest song I’ve ever heard. Sounds like she’s saying ‘puppy’. Where were the lyrics? All she kept saying was ‘puppy’. I KNOW what Papi means — I’m Cuban — and it sounded like puppy. Just AWFUL!!

Besides the song itself being absolutely horrible! The biggest INSULT is Jennifer Lopz lip synching on a talent show for singing. Kinda what Americas Got Talent is all about right? I don’t know what she is doing on the show anyway. She has hardly had a career as a successful singer. She’s known more for the drama surrounding her life. WHAT A JOKE SHE IS

Horrible song and cringe-worthy performance! And on top of that, she lip-synced in front of these mew talented artists she is supposed to judge. Shame on her!

I hate to be negative but I can’t help it. She is too old for this. She looked like she had no class. The outfit she had on just aged her even more. The shorts looked like mom jeans on her and the head tapping was just weird….I don’t know she tried but I think she tried too hard this time.

Ghetto trash as usual.

I had to turn that video off midway …..no beat, no catchy lyrics, just ugh.

Girl it’s 2014, retire the fly girl outfits and dance moves already.

What a bunch of jealous and resentful witches who’re likely the same age as Jen and see what fantastic shape SHE is in..and how sad and dumpy they are by comparison. Their only way to feel remotely good about themselves is to trash the gorgeous and still very beautiful Jennifer Lopez. The comment about ‘ghetto’ is a dead giveaway about the bigotry inherent in the deep-rooted jealous comments here as well. You aren’t fooling anyone remotely. SHE is a class act..behaves herself accordingly in her appearances and presence on Idol..and simply because you now see that her body is indeed in such good shape with no artifice (that’s what dancing does for you), you’all spew such venom against her while hiding behind your computers. C’mon..post YOUR photos..I dare you!
Pah, cowards.

@ScottyGS:

What is your point? So what if she is fit? Her looks/body are not the issue, it’s her shameless lip-syncing and the quality of this horrible song.
It doesn’t matter what the audience looks like, we are not competing with Lopez, we are the ones who critique her songs and decide whether her music is worth listening to. And for me, her music sucks even if she looks good for age.

I don’t understand why all the critical remarks. Jennifer is a wonderful person & I think she is a fantastic presence oh AI! Hip Hop is definitely not my favorite type of music, but to each his own. No need to say anything negative about it. I think she’s pretty awesome & I’m an almost 50 year old woman.

loved it, she looks great, pretty as always, none come close to her, and yes we all have our own opinion on that,due to different type of music.

Damn, she’s still trying to be relevant in music, something sh’e's never mastered. I personally felt ashame for her. The performance was awful and her time has past, she’s no Mariah or Jennifer Hudson women with real talent and staying power. Sorry Jen curtains down!!

i for one like jenifer lopez i think she is really pretty an i like some of her music …but pretty is as pretty does an this was not pretty an this song was awful an i have to agree that she is to old for this her older music is 100% better then this junk jenifer lopez is pretty but dressing like she is 15 on stage is not she needs clothes that are sexy but that are more for her own age …to me i think jenifer is a better actress then a singer i loved all her movies an iwish she would do more movies then sing……

I luh ya wat? Horrible horrible…could that be J.lo? U can show how sexy u’r but this….understatement. Try a little harder or hit the road because u suuuuucccccckkkkk…

I am sorry but felt ashamed for her watching this performance. I literally cringed at parts because she looked so stupid and had no clue that she did. I also got very sad when I saw how she looked in the famous green dress pattern this year. it made me feel nostalgic because I remember when she was as beautiful as she was back in the day. Seeing her now just makes me feel sad for her because she is trying too hard to hold on to what is gone and its just painful to watch.

Jlo is getting old and cornny

I don’t understan how she made so much money its questionable she was not that good back then.

you can see right through her her arrogance Rosie Perez is right and all the men who she thinks she is Elizabeth Taylor

go back to school is something you got enough money and go to college educate yourselfI heard you a college dropoutyou know that money to get a degree in something
