Early 2000s Nicole Richie is our favorite.
The fashionista explained:
There are throwbacks and then there are throwbacks! We think this J.Lo pic falls into the latter category!
During last night's episode of American Idol the foxy FOX show host shared a vintage picture of herself, and it was the cutest thing EVER!
Jennifer Lopez and Idol co-judges Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban were holding open auditions in Salt Lake City, but when pressed they all pretty much admitted there was no way in hell they'd win the show if it were around when they were coming up in the biz!
Somehow that discussion evolved into a nostalgic look back at each judge's first television appearances!
Holy hockey pucks, that dude sure has aged gracefully!!
In any event, we think it's great the Idol judges are turning clocks back and considering how tough life was for them before they were big stars! Hopefully that'll make them a little more empathetic to the up-and-comers trying to cut their teeth on the show this season!
American Idol continues Thursday night at 8 p.m. EST!
