    Low class tacky JHO’s lip syncing continues, she loves to put the mic in front of her mouth so the audience and camera can’t see she isn’t singing. As always she must do her stripper moves to keep the attention on her. Classless.

    Jennifer did good , and I love the Dress!!!

  • Faithz

    Was waiting on her to break a few dance steps, since shes such
    a great dancer.

  • millly

    funny how people always compliment her style and looks but never her singing.Maybe cause she never earned anything on her own merit without her manager buying her awards or buying people off.

  • Marie800

    It’s so obvious that she lipsynced again

  • Dee

    Loved Keith Urban and J Lo voices together. Keith and his guitar, you can not beat it.

  • 1urbanfan27

    I wish they had done a medley of their own hits…Each singing a bit of the other’s songs…Or hits from their own movies (Yes…Keith has songs in movies)…Songs everyone watching, could relate to…

  • Mirata

    I’m definitely heard her sings better. I think this is not lip sync, definitely sing live or they recorded many off tunes.

  • Mirata

    No, she is not.

  • chelsea

    too bad he doesn’t read your suggestions… or anything else of yours for that matter.

  • 1urbanfan27

    You only wish that were true…7 years and counting… :)

  • Marie800

    Totally not live lol!

  • chelsea

    haha! And how is that working out for you?

  • 1urbanfan27

    It’s worked a lot more than you will ever know…

  • 1urbanfan27

    In fact…You might be surprised…REALLY surprised… :)

  • Mirata

    Too many pich problems to be pre recorded, they will fix it if so, and yet Keith Urban hard to believe that lip sync, he is tremendous singer.

  • mac lennon

    Right, more “covers” on the tacky karaoke show. Not like the talentless “judges” could possibly come up with something original for the finale of course. As for the orb…he is rightly STILL confused and clueless on his next move with the end of Idol looming. Via Pulse country forum…

    Keith Urban talks ‘Idol,’ hit songs, new music

    “Now that “American Idol” has wrapped, Urban plans to head into the recording studio full time. He said he had some “spare parts of songs” that didn’t make it onto “Fuse” that he thought he could use as inspiration for his new album. When he returned to the recording studio in January, he realized that what he thought he wanted for his new music, wasn’t what he wanted at all.“I pulled back from everything and I think I’m back into the forest again where there’s no path,” Urban said. “It’s, ‘Here we go again.’ But I only respond to what I respond to. There’s other places to go, and I need to be brave enough to go there.”

    …about to refry leftovers from his lackluster previous album…no doubt thought better of that… now right back to having no idea what to do. Well, back to Shazam…and “finding” new music to plunder, eh orb?! This “change of heart” on the path of the next album is clearly just a “stalling tactic” from orb…due to his lack of creativity and imagination…and no desire whatsoever to release another pathetic selling album.

  • chelsea

    um-hm… keep clinging to that dream, dear…lol

  • 1urbanfan27

    Don’t call me dear…Don’t call me anything familiar…You don’t have that right…I got proof…And NO…I don’t owe it to the likes of you…And you got nothin’… :) Keep clinging to your dream, that you know the whole story…Just keep reading those publicity articles…And believing them…Even when they change every other month…

  • 1urbanfan27

    She sure stole the show in that sheer lace number… :)

  • 1urbanfan27

    The judges performances were taped the night before the show…So funny how they make that part look live…But ti isn’t… :)

  • 1urbanfan27

    Keith NEVER lip-syncs…He has no need to…But the judges performances were taped the night before they aired on Wednesday…And then they inserted Nic’s need for attention and the other audience participation…

  • Faithz

    Yes indeed ♡

  • chelsea

    you are all talk and no gravy. Show your cards. You can’t. No one believes you. You live a sad existence, dear.
