'American Idol': Jennifer Lopez Wishes She Could Mentor More (Video)
Minutes after Elise Testone was eliminated, the TV judge gave THR her take on why heeding the judges' advice can be a big advantage for a finalist.
Minutes after Elise Testone was eliminated on Thursday's American Idol, season 11 judge Jennifer Lopez lamented the fact that she and her table-mates can't mentor the finalists one-on-one.
"We try to get as much in there as we can," Lopez told The Hollywood Reporter's special correspondent (and season 9 Idol alum) Didi Benami, even if that means occassionally being "harsh." Unlike seasons past, when "funny" was the order of the day, she continued. Today, it's all about truth.
