We've seen the first two episodes of American Idol season 10, and we're happy to report that new AI judge, Jennifer Lopez doesn't disappoint. She's all of the things that people are saying she is: swift, sassy, compassionate, tough when she needs to be, and right on the money when it comes to spotting America's next big superstars.

25 Years After Conga
By Angie Romero | 11/05/2010 - 14:00

Unofficially, you could say that Gloria, 53, and Emilio Estefan, 57, own Miami.
