J.Lo fondly recalls her experiences on 'Amerian Idol', saying that her two-year stint on the show helped her grow as a performer.

Jennifer Lopez recalls her time on "American Idol" and says that the show helped her grow as an artist. She recounts her experiences as a judge on the show in an interview with MTV News.

"Whenever it's things like that, where you're working with other people, like the audience, or even another artist, like we did with the contestants on the show, you learn, you grow," she says of her two-year stay on the singing competition. She adds, "And whatever I'd tell them, it was funny, it was like telling myself."

She remembers the tips and comments she gave the contestants such as "Don't forget, when you're onstage ... make you sure you connect and make sure it's about the feeling." She explains why those notes were so important, "We all get caught up, when we're the ones standing there, and everybody's watching. But, it's about forgetting about that and conveying a feeling."

Speaking fondly of her time as a judge, J.Lo has been more focused on her music career lately. She says that the show "was a great experience; it was a great experience to sit there and do that for a while, and I honestly feel like it was put in my life for a reason, to be part of my journey and part of my growth, because it definitely did that. But as much as I love the show, this is what I do. This is what I do. And that was fun and it was great, but this is what I do."

Lopez is currently touring in support of her greatest hits CD, "Dance Again". She is also gearing up to release a new video for "Goin' In", which features Flo Rida, on Wednesday, July 25 on MTV.
