Jordin Sparks has a sunny outlook on the new “American Idol” judges.
The season six “American Idol” winner told MTV’s “The Seven” that she’s excited to see Jennifer Lopez return to the show.
"She was a mentor on my season and she was really sweet and I thought she gave us great advice," Jordin said. "It’s gonna be cool to see how she does."
And Jordin can’t wait to see Steven Tyler on the judges’ panel. "I’ve always been a fan of Steven Tyler, so I’m excited to watch him," she said.
While both Steven and J.Lo have said they would be honest, yet kind, as judges, Jordin wants to know which one of them will become the show’s new Simon Cowell, the show’s snarkiest judge.
"It’s gonna be crazy to see which one takes over the Simon ‘role,’ I guess," Jordin said. "He’s pretty much irreplaceable, but I think everybody kind of has that brutal honesty."
