Access Hollywood is reporting that, fresh off her stint saving the world (or perhaps not), Jennifer Lopez will perform on "American Idol" ("The show everyone watches but me!"™) on April 11.
On the one hand, it's nice to see that J-Lo is making an attempt to become a viable presence in the music industry again (unless you count that upcoming movie about the vampire salsa singer)...but on the other, I don't think it's fair that the producers of "American Idol" are allowing someone to audition so late into the season simply because she's famous.
In any event, I'm sure that the show--which purports up and down to be all about genuine singing ability--will prove to be harsh confines for Lopez, as vocal talent is something she definitively lacks. There's no way "American Idol" would have as poor a singer as Jennifer Lopez on the show and kiss up to her rather than derisively mock her. That would be extremely hypocritical.
