When she signed up for American Idol, it wasn’t for the good of the future stars of the music industry. It was so she could revive her nearly dead career. Unfortunately for JLo, it’s Steven Tyler that became the breakout new star from this season of American Idol. That hasn’t stopped her from trying to revive her musical career, unfortunately for us.
