Working on her second season, Jennifer Lopez will return in the judging panel in American Idol season 11 and this time around, she is more tough and critical about the contestants.
"We're a little tougher on everybody," the judge told PEOPLE at a Samsung Hope for Children event supporting the Maribel Foundation in Los Angeles. "Because of last season and the standard that we set, it's easy to go, 'Is he as good as even our top 24 from last year?'"
The "Papi" songstress knows that the competitions are now more tougher with the arrival of other singing shows.
She has the experience that she can share to the rightful aspiring singer to excel in this industry.
