Jennifer Lopez Looks Back at 'On the 6' Fifteen Years Later

Jennifer Lopez poses for a photo on the stage at American Idol during the results show on Thursday (May 15) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 44-year-old entertainer was joined for the last show in their regular studio this season by fellow judges Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. and host Ryan Seacrest.

Jennifer recently chatted with Billboard about her first album On the 6 fifteen years after she released it.

“It was a great process. I was working with Corey [Rooney], who 15-years later is still with me. Everything was so new to me: I had never been in the studio. I had never recorded music. I had only sang at shows and plays. It was one of those things where ignorance was bliss,” Jennifer said. “I knew I was making an album, but you’re so young it’s not hitting you how big it is. I remember going back and doing the vocals over and over again. I was a perfectionist about it. Everything went from there…”

FYI: Jennifer is wearing an Emilio Pucci dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, and W. Britt earrings.
