Jennifer Lopez Talks Missing ‘American Idol’ On ‘Ellen’: Watch

Just because Jennifer Lopez left American Idol doesn’t mean she doesn’t miss it, or something! That seems to be the tone of her interview on The Ellen Degeneres Show, where she reflects nostalgically on her experiences on Idol and the little family she built up there. (She’s the one who calls it a family.)

But it’s not all bad news and sad Idol dreams, the lingering memory of a fonder past — because J.Lo got to go on a world tour! Her very first! And she enjoyed that, probably much more than listening to goofy hopefuls howl and bray the same old rendition of an Alicia Keys song. So everything worked out for Jennifer Lopez, after all is said and done. Watch up top.
