The 55-year-old took the former aback by asking her opinion about the music stars who are supposedly replacing her and rocker Steven Tyler.
In a preview clip, Couric asks J. Lo: “What do you think about the new group of judges? I think they’ve announced…”
A shocked Lopez says: “Did they announce? Who is it?”
Apparently pleased with the line-up the singer said: “Thank God. I love Randy.
“That’s an eclectic group. They’ll all have something different to offer so it should be interesting.”
The problem is that Fox, the network that airs American Idol, says the new judging panel has not yet been confirmed.
A Fox representative told ABCNews.com: “Please note that the only confirmed judge for American Idol is Mariah Carey.
“No other judges have been announced at this time.”
And the two women seemed to bond over their love of younger men. Couric says: “You’ve been in a relationship. He is 18 years younger…
“Been there. Done that!”
J. Lo responds by saying: “The whole number thing for me is hard to kind of get my mind around.”
