Little Girl Singing 'Let It Go' Makes Jennifer Lopez Cry on 'American Idol'

By
American Idol contender Hope is quite possibly the cutest contestant in the Fox singing competition show’s history.
And while she isn't quite of age to compete for real, she sings her heart out for the judges in a new season 14 teaser – and her adorable rendition of Frozen’s "Let It Go" moved Jennifer Lopez to tears. Watch the video above to see J.Lo get all sorts of emotional.
Not every contestant is so lucky though. During an interview with special ET correspondent Lance Bass, the “Booty” singer joked that she’s developed a secret way to communicate during auditions with fellow judges Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr.
“I just pinch them, I like to pinch!”
Season 14 of American Idol premieres Wednesday, Jan. 7 on Fox.
While there’s no telling which other hopefuls will steal our hearts like Hope did, Forbes released a list of the most successful Idols from past seasons.
Carrie Underwood, who is expecting her first baby this spring, reigned supreme in 2014, raking in a mega $10 million.
