Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez are now settling in nicely as the new judges of American Idol on FOX, but do past contestants think about them? Though he can’t speak for all of them, David Archuleta did share his thoughts on the new season ten judges. Keep reading to hear what David had to say!
American Idol on FOX is off to a strong start this season with the new judges in place and in a recent interview, season seven runner up, David Archuleta shared his thoughts on the new panel of judges. David spoke highly of everyone and when asked about Jennifer Lopez possibly being too easy on the hopefuls, David replied by saying “you understand the nerves that people feel, so you can’t help but feel empathy for them. They’re performers, and I think ladies naturally have that nurturing side to them. As you saw with Paula, she was always nice, but she got a little more tough as she went along, realizing, you get over feeling bad for them and start giving them real critiques. I think she did a really great job for her first time. It’s not easy to tell people to their face and be honest if you crush their dreams.”
So what about everyone’s newest favorite Steven Tyler? It sounds like David had the same reservations about Steven as most did until we actually saw him as he says “A lot of people didn’t realize what a character he is. He really made it funny and entertaining to watch. I thought he was going to be more reserved or quiet. I thought he was going to be more self-conscious than he was, and I’m happy he wasn’t. I guess he’s used to being in front of people and having to deal with attention. It really was refreshing that the judges were able to be themselves.”
Be sure to tune in next Wednesday at 8 pm EST for more auditions in Texas on American Idol on FOX!
