Former American Idol bandleader Rickey Minor has been following the upheaval on his former show closely — and gives his enthusiastic endorsement to rumored new judge Jennifer Lopez. "J. Lo would be amazing because she has it all," Rickey, who left Idol in June for The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, tells In Touch. "She's great, she was on the show and I worked with her and Tom Cruise on the MTV Movie Award performance. She is a mother, wife, singer, dancer, actor, has a clothing line. Like Paula [Abdul], she's struggled and she knows what it takes to be successful in this business,” says Rickey, adding, “You have to be entertaining."
