American Idol Judges 2014: Jennifer Lopez Confidence Builds Alongside Keith Urban, Harry Connick, Jr

By Staff

Jennifer Lopez is one of three American Idol judges this season.

The three American idol judges for 2014 are Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr and so far this season, they may be the best thing about the show.

While idol seems to have hit a good fit with Urban, Connick, Jr and Lopez, many of the contestants have struggled.

The show is live tonight and that may change and a lot of that will have to do with confidence.

The contestants could take a lesson from J Lo - the beautiful singer, actress and American idol judge says she feels ''more confident'' than ever.

The 44-year-old 'American Idol' judge - who is currently working on the talent show and filming a new TV drama, as well as preparing to release her 10th album and overseeing her clothing line for Kohls - no longer worries about failing because she is always ready to pick herself up from a setback.

She said: ''I feel like I felt when I was 28. My bones don't hurt. I feel great. I actually feel better, more confident. Of course I still have the nerves, but now I know how to control them. When I was in my twenties, I wasn't sure of myself. Now I can really stretch. I don't have to stay in the box. At this point I can say to myself, 'So what if I fall, so what?' I'm going to get back up.''

The 44-year-old star - who has six-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony - believes there has been a shift in recent years to celebrate older women and she thinks females in the spotlight can now enjoy longer careers.

Speaking to the new edition of America's InStyle magazine, she said: ''The turning point was a couple of years ago when the September issue of women's magazines had cover girls who were all over 40 - Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock, Julia Roberts, me. It was hard not to be happy. That says something about our society. People used to believe their life - or at least their life as a performer - was over at 28 or some ungodly age! God, when I think of myself back then, I had no idea who I was. I think I'm barely getting that under control now.''
