‘American Idol’ Season 14 Sneak Peek: J.Lo Gets Emotional Over a Child’s ‘Let It Go’ Performance [WATCH VIDEO]

“American Idol” judge Jennifer Lopez gets emotional and teary-eyed as a young contestant sings “Let It Go.” Read on for more details.

In the sneak preview of the next “American Idol Season 14” episode, J. Lo gets emotional as a young hopeful sings her version of “Let It Go.” J. Lo holds back her tears while singing with the song’s final line, “the cold never bothered me anyway.”


The young and hopeful contestant gets her first yes from J. Lo and another from Harry Connick Jr., who told her “You were amazing!” Keith Urban seems to disagree, though, and advised the young auditioner to work on her breathing technique. The young diva leaves with the golden ticket in her hand and hugs her mom afterwards.

More hopefuls from Nashville audition in the hopes of becoming the next American Idol. The next episode will also feature auditions from Kansas.

Did “American Idol” do some changes in their show? Well, we can definitely say yes because the show has become more entertaining, with the judges making every contestant comfortable and at ease before every performance and the contestants are becoming younger. Connick Jr. previously mentioned that they’re looking for contestants who could capture the public’s imagination. Last season, he said that the young contestants weren’t brave and ready enough for the challenges that the show held for them. Let’s hope this time, the title “American Idol” goes to someone in the likes of Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Chris Daughtry and Carrie Underwood.

The show’s changes might have done it quite a boost as the show premiered with 11.2 million viewers and a 3.3 rating, higher than “American Idol Season 13’s” finale, which drew in only 10.5 million viewers and a 2.6 rating. The show’s premiere, however, is still lower than the previous season’s premiere episode by 26 percent.

The show’s executive producer, Trish Kinane, also hinted of a girl who said that she has never sung in public prior to her audition in the show but ends up in the top 24. The show will also have a cut back on its live shows per week from two to one. The elimination and performance will happen all in one day.

There you have it for the sneak preview of what’s coming next in “American Idol Season 14.” What do you think of the little girl’s performance? Sound off in the comments!
