The American Idol judge spoke to E! News about Clarkson's return as a guest judge for the first live show of the final season. Lopez was asked if she had any words of wisdom for Kelly and her response is one that might catch you by surprise. 

"Advice? Hell no! I think she knows exactly what this is all about. She was the first Idol. She's watched 15 seasons of it now," Lopez said. 

Harry Connick Jr. also spoke about Clarkson's return and how amazing it is that she is coming back after being the first winner. 

"She's going to be great. I'm going to sit back and just listen, because if anyone knows how to judge on American Idol it would have to be her. She was there the first year; she went through from the very first day all the way to winning it," he said. "She's had so many hits over the years. American Idol is so lucky that she was able to come back and contribute like that."
