Jennifer Lopez Was Blown Away by Jena Irene on 'American Idol' This Week!

The 44-year-old entertainer was joined by her fellow judge Keith Urban while walking from their trailers into the studio.

The previous night, Jennifer did something she’s never done before on the show… gotten out of her seat after a performance to hug a contestant!

Jen was so moved by Jena Irene‘s rendition of Elvis Presley‘s “Can’t Help Falling in Love” that she walked over to her and give her a hug and a kiss. Watch below!

FYI: Jennifer is wearing a Bec & Bridge dress and Christian Louboutin shoes.

    Jena was amazing on her last Elvis song. Jlo looks gorgeous as always. Why do they make Keith’s hair stand up at the crown!? Let it grow Keith! Let the back grow again.

  • Elena

    JLo’s knees look terrible. Time to cover her thunder thighs up, yuck!

  • sandy

    Not impressive when you know she basically heard Ingrid Michaelson’s cover version and copied it.

    Love the three judges together. Keith Urban my favorite. Keith has got to do something with his hair, let it grow a little, it looks terrible this way. JLo went a little over the top after Jena appearance, seemed like some of it was put on.

  • nyc

    Please. this show needs to end.

  • 1urbanfan27

    I liked her performance…That’s my favorite Elvis song…
    And I have dedicated it to my favorite man… :)

  • Again!

    ……..and her new music single ‘First Love’ flops, to join the long list of flops.

  • WHAT???

    @Again!: Adrenalina was number 2 on itunes spain , and now first love is nº 5 in 40 princ. the radio most famous of spain bitch!!

  • She Stinks!

    JHO loves to sneer, snarl and look angry for the camera in a desperate attempt to appear sexy. Instead, she looks old, manly and pathetic. I’m sure JHO was jealous that this girl could actually sing and has talent, instead of lip syncing and doing stripper dance moves to get attention.

    @nyc: if you don’t like the show don’t watch it, millions of people including myself love the show. You take time out of your life to say they should end show ??????

  • Again!

    @what??? IN SPAIN, who’s talking about SPAIN? A bit of a hit in Spain yippee!!!! As for Adrenalina, that was because of Ricky, not her. In the USA, everything she does FLOPS. I don’t care what anybody says EVERYTHING SHE DOES FLOPS BIG TIME!!! On AI she looks and sounds like a nobody, next to the voices of the contestants and sitting between Harry and Keith SHE’S A NOBODY!!!

  • Mark

    Jlo doesn’t have a great voice, but she knows it. She has gotten hugely popular on her looks and dancing (which is just mediocre) so you have to give her credit for making the most of her abilities. She is beautiful. You cannot deny that with any credibility.

    1urbanfan27

    You mean the Elvis song that Keith said was his wife’s favorite and that they both love that song. Oh that song.

  • Audry

    @Sally:

    27′s comment was quite benign. I guess you just can’t stand that she loves him and posts here. I mean, if she lied, or unfairly criticized I could see a retort, but this one was nothing. The poor woman loves a man she can’t have. I don’t understand her not finding a man of her own, but it’s really her loss.

  • IM

    Is JLo losing weight or did they photoshop her hips? They used to be enormous.

  • http://yahoo Lizzie

    @Sally:

    Not that it really makes any difference, but the song Keith said was Nicole’s favorite was ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ which Caleb performed.
    Changing subject, if JJ didn’t follow the no kids pics (which by the way, is a very good rule), you’d have seen Keith’s adorable little Faith surprise him after this show. Talk about a daddy’s little girl!

  • http://yahoo JoBeth

    That’s quite an entourage that accompanies her highness. As the Irish used to say: ‘that cat has a long tail’. I always took it to mean, she thinks she’s pretty special. Fits, doesn’t it?

  • http://comcast Teresa

    @nyc: Why because you say so, who are you … Millions and millions of people love American Idol !!!!

  • Sally

    Audrey and Lizzie my comment was also benign. I was just reminding 1urbanfan27 that Keith is happily married to Nicole. I also did see those beautiful pictures of Keith with Faith Margaret.

  • http://comcast Alyson

    I get a kick out of Keith Urban, you can tell they really like each other professionally but Keith is a little aloof around her when cameras are on them. I don’t know if he is afraid of Nicole or afraid of gossip ???

  • http://comcast Alyson

    Above comment, I mean you can tell Keith and J Lo like each other….

  • http://comcast Alyson

    Above comment, I mean you can tell Keith and J Lo like each other…. The judges are great this year.

  • 1urbanfan27

    @Sally: You know NOTHING at all about the state of that marriage…Or what makes Keith happy, for that matter…And HE knows whose favorite that Elvis song is…He knows ALL about it…

    And his secret words (If you watched Ellen)…ALL I can say is… :)

  • 1urbanfan27

    @Audry: No one owns anyone…A situation,one is in…Or a geographical location of a body does NOT denote the location of a heart…

  • 1urbanfan27

    And funny…Not funny haha…But funny strange…A few of these names emanate from the same location… :)

  • Beth

    @1urbanfan27:

    Oh yes. We all knew you would jump on the chance to insinuate his secret words were meant for you. But, of course. ;). And I know, YOU don’t care what I believe and HE knows the truth. LOL. Yeah, yeah.

  • 1urbanfan27

    @Beth: WE all knew…You mean you and the handful with their many usernames…I don’t insinuate anything…Insinuation has always been in your bully heads…I merely said that I know about secret words…And it had nothing to do with what he was talking about on the talk show…Platypus or parakeet breath…You haven’t a clue…And that’s just fine with me…

  • http://comcast Audra

    I have never seen a stronger love than Keith and Nicole have for each other.

  • Vous

    Love is a matter of perspective. He loves the baubles and worldwide press and name recognition she brought him. She loves herself. Buying a man (and children) is truly THE BEST she coud do at that point in her life. She had run the gamut of available men, and none stuck or bit. She heard of another Aussie, one that she could exert power over (she is not of the ‘weaker sex’ so-to-speak) who was starved for adulation, appreciation, and affirmation…and it was a match! Keith is a very smart man…he’s playing the game perfectly. Love, Set, Match!!!

  • Amy

    @Vous:

    A smart man would not marry and have children for any reason other than love. Anybody who would even think of such a twisted scenario must be mentally ill.
