It's been an interesting week on "American Idol," and Thursday's (March 20) episode featured heart-breaking decisions and earth-shattering performances!

Jennifer Lopez herself stepped off the judging panel to perform her latest single, "I Luh Ya PaPi" for its very first live unveiling.

Taking the stage with former "American Idol" contestants, Jessica Sanchez from season 11, Pia Toscano of season 10, and season 8's Allison Iraheta, JLo began the performance with the four songstresses singing the song acapella.

The 44-year-old beauty strutted her stuff in sexy booty shorts, dressed just like her backup singers, complimenting the bottom three announcements as Dexter Roberts, Majesty Rose and MK Nobilette.

Nobilette got the boot in the end, and here is the list of "Idol's" final 9:
