Jennifer Lopez Uses Ex-Husband for 'American Idol' Critique

Jennifer Lopez looks amazing while showing off her legs for this week’s episode of American Idol on Wednesday (April 1) in Los Angeles.

The 45-year-old entertainer started the show by critiquing a contestant and telling him to take a cue from her ex-husband Marc Anthony‘s dance moves!

“Find something that makes you not think about moving,” Jennifer said. “I know one singer, who I used to be married to, who shakes his leg. Who does just a leg thing and it’s just a little thing. But it grounds him in the pocket. I feel like that’s what you need.”

When Harry Connick Jr. joked that she was talking about David Hasselhoff, who was on the show last week, Jen replied by saying, “He’s one guy I haven’t been married to.”

FYI: Jennifer is wearing a Kohl’s top and shorts from her own collection, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, a Vita Fede ring and earrings, an Effy Jewelry ring, Endless Jewelry bracelets, and a Jennifer Fisher ring.

Every year American Idol hopefuls sing the latest big hits during their auditions and it looks like Sia‘s “Chandelier” was this year’s go-to track!
