If it were up to Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez, the next American Idol would be Jorge Nuñez! The couple was so overjoyed when Nuñez sang his way into the show's final Top 12 this week, Marc Anthony himself sent host Ryan Seacrest a text message asking him to pass on their congratulations and best wishes to the 20-year-old Puerto Rican.
"Hey bro, I just finished watching the show. This guy is really special," begins Anthony's text, which Seacrest read on the air to Nuñez during an interview on his radio show, On-Air with Ryan Seacrest. "Please tell Jorge that Jen and I could not be prouder. We were in tears witnessing, honestly. Pure talent."
The aspiring pop star could barely contain himself upon hearing the message. "Oh, God! ¡Válgame! Ay, Dios mío. You made my day! I'm gonna be happy the rest of the day," he exclaimed.
That's it? If we were an Idol contestant getting an endorsement from Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, we'd be ecstatic for the rest of the year, at least!
