Move Over Jennifer Lawrence! Jennifer Lopez Slow Dances With an 'American Idol' Contestant

Pin It

It looks like Jennifer Lopez doesn't turn down everyone that asks her to dance.

When an American Idol contestant in Nashville walked up to the judges' table and asked the "Booty" crooner if she would dance with him, J.Lo looked like she was about to shoot down the request, but quickly softened up.

"Dance with you right now?" the 45-year-old singer replied. "What kind of dancing? Because my heels are really high... "

In spite of her tall heels, J.Lo soon obliged, getting up to slow dance with the aspiring singer in the middle of his audition. She showed him how to slow dance too, putting her arm around his neck when he tried to hold her hand. "This is how you slow-dance," she said. "You're trying to be a gentleman? No."

Her fellow judges Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. got in on the fun too, with the duo providing J.Lo and the contestant a musical accompaniment on a piano and guitar.

As they danced, the contestant sang Sam Smith's "Stay With Me," with J.Lo saying, "This is so sweet. That's the most fun I've had in months." Thankfully, the contestant could sing, and walked away with a ticket to Hollywood.

A few months back, Jennifer Lawrence famously told a story on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon about how J.Lo dissed her when she asked her to dance at an awards season party. Basically, after several Jello shots, she and Jimmy Fallon came up with a plan to get J.Lo to dance with them...and failed miserably.

Maybe she should work on serenading J.Lo next time.
