Jennifer Lopez Breaks Down in Tears After Performance by American Idol Hopeful [WATCH]
Jennifer Lopez struggled to contain her emotions as she broke down following La’Porsha Renae’s powerful performance on Thursday.
Before her rendition of Mary J Blige’s No More Drama, La’Porsha opened up about an abusive relationship that ended just before she appeared on the show.
By the end of the song both La’Porsha and Jennifer were in tears, with the judge getting up from her seat to give her a standing ovation.
Praising the talent show hopeful, Jennifer said: “It takes a lot to overcome those things in your life baby.
“I know – everybody knows – we’ve all been through stuff like that, you know what I mean? And honestly, you’re an inspiration – it was so beautiful.
“You put it in your music and you don’t over do it. It was powerful. Thank you for that moment.”
J-Lo also had another teary eyed moment following Trent Harmon’s performance.
“It’s moments like this why I love Idol, and why I’m going to miss it so much,” she said.
“It’s even having this front seat watching the perfect song and the perfect singer sing it at that time. And it made me think, ‘Damn, I’ve been so lucky the five years I got to be on this show and watch things like that.”
