American Idol Judges Shed Tears During New Season

For an American Idol season supposedly without drama, there already seems to be a lot of tears shed. "I've cried," admitted new judge Jennifer Lopez at the Los Angeles auditions for Season 10 on November 4. "All of us have cried a lot this audition season," added Randy Jackson. "Me, Steven, Jennifer and Ryan."

The tears, they say, are a result of having to disappoint people, something both of the new judges still find difficult. While Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler tries to suppress his desire to "flambé" bad contestants, Lopez opts for constructive criticism. "I think everyone's trying to be as honest as they can without breaking too many spirits," she said. "We're not out to cut them down or make a joke of them. What we're trying to do is really mentor them and help them to the next step if we think they're worth it and if they're not, just be super honest with them and let them know this is not for them."
