Producer Randy Jackson has heaped praise on his fellow American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez for "rising above" her marriage breakdown and throwing herself into her work.
The singer/actress has been focusing her efforts on her music, acting and fashion gigs since announcing her split from husband Marc Anthony in July (11), and Jackson admits he's in awe at Lopez's strong will and work ethic as she juggles her personal life and her career with auditions for the hit TV talent show.
He tells People.com, "We've been doing auditions and she's rising above (marriage troubles). She's strong, she's a trooper, she's a great girl. She's amazing."
