Jennifer Lopez has spoken out about her first fight with her fellow American Idol judges.

The singer is currently judging talent on the hit Fox show alongside Randy Jackson and Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler and has revealed that there are already tensions between the judges speaking to Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show: "Me and Randy and Steve got into our first fight. I was upset." The 42-year-old superstar explained that the disagreement started after Lopez saw a contestant perform whom she described as "amazing", however, Aerosmith rocker Tyler didn't quite see the contestant in the same light and refused to vote for her and that's when the argument erupted, with the Jenny From The Block hit maker saying "Are you guys crazy? Literally I thought I was being Punk'd. 'How can we let this girl go?' She had a great voice."

American Idol is a reality TV show based on the original UK show Pop Idol. The show is designed to discover new recording artists by allowing the public to vote for their favourite contestant. Lopez was born in the Bronx, New York City and began her career as a back-up dancer before releasing her debut album, On The 6 in 1999. She has since gone on to release six more albums and has achieved both critical and commercial success with her music. She has also appeared in several movies including 2003 romantic comedy, Gigli alongside Ben Affleck.
