FOX All Access spoke to ‘American Idol’ finalists Paul McDonald and Karen Rodriguez, asking them how meaningful it is to get advice from Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez, who themselves had to overcome the struggles to find success in the music business. “I love Jennifer Lopez so much,” Karen said. “I’ve been a fan of her since I was so small. To be able to sing in front of her and have her sit in front of me and tell me this is what you need to do, I love this, I didn’t like that, it’s just like she’s helping me. It’s great to see my idol, one of my big idols just be there for me.” Watch the comments via YouTube below.
