Fans have been worried about the new season of “American Idol” ever since infamous judge Simon Cowell announced his departure from the show. Viewers don’t know what to expect with new judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, but the show’s host, Ryan Seacrest, says there’s still someone around to carry over Simon’s brutal honesty: J. Lo herself!

Ryan said: “Who’s the mean one now Simon’s gone? Jennifer. She expects a lot. She’s tough, but she gives tough love.”

He added: “Steven is probably our most emotional judge.”

“We will probably see tears from Steven as well as laughs, and he’s a prankster too. But they got along very well on the road.”

Personally, I’m excited to see how the new judging panel fares!
