Jennifer Lopez on New Single & 'American Idol'

Is it too early to say that Jennifer Lopez is our favorite judge on American Idol season 10?

FOX just released a touchy-feely J.Lo-centric promo —and we have to admit, we got a little emotional seeing one of our biggest Latin stars sitting right smack in the center of the judges table. 

Like Paula Abdul, J.Lo knows what it's like to pursue a difficult dream and shares words of encouragement with the Idol hopefuls: “It takes a lot of guts to come out here, we know this, we’ve been in your position, we understand how you feel,” Lopez tells them. “Have fun and believe in your destiny!”

When another super nervous contestant admits to the judges that his "knees are shaking,” J.Lo replies, "That’s okay baby, because I like you. There’s no reason for you to be shaking, we want you to be great!”

Coinciding with the premiere of the tenth season of American Idol in January, J.Lo says she's be dropping a new single early in 2011 off of her album Love?, which will also be released sometime next year.
