Jordin Sparks Weighs in on New 'American Idol' JudgesSeason six 'American Idol' winner Jordin Sparks weighed in on new judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, and noted with surprise how well the revamped panel seems to be working on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated).

Sparks recalled Lopez as a mentor from her season and said she seemed to grow into her role as a judge. "J-Lo was actually a mentor on my season when we did Latin week. So, I kind of have a little bit of history there with her ... It's so endearing to see that she ... had a hard time saying no during the first couple of episodes," she said, adding that Lopez soon grew accustomed to giving contestants bad news.

As for Tyler, Sparks appreciates his often outrageous comments, such as when he asked one hopeful whether he ate paint chips as a child. "Who says that? It's so funny. He's hilarious," she said.

In terms of her overall opinion of the 'Idol' overhaul, Sparks said, "I was pleasantly surprised at how everything worked together and the vibes are really good."
