“Extra’s” Renee Bargh caught up with the “Idol” judge — and new queen of Las Vegas — about her gone-viral Instagram post from earlier this week, where she went makeup-free after a workout and showed off her insanely toned abs.

Gotta get it in… #workinonmyfitness #gymtime #cardio #thereIamwithnomakeupagain! Lol

She shared,

I have to stay in shape right now like when I go back to do the show in May… it’s a demanding show physically, so I have to stay in shape. If I go back and I’m not ready, it would be a bad thing — I can’t let the audience down.

The star also raved about guest judge Kelly Clarkson, who brought the house down with an emotional rendition of “Piece by Piece.”

Guest judge!! @kelly_clarkson LOVE HER!!!

Lopez gushed,

SO much, fun, she is a fun girl, she’s my kind of girl, she kept dropping curses here and there.”

Jennifer went on about Kelly, who is due to give birth to a baby boy next week,

I felt so much for her because I remember being at that stage even though it was eight years ago for me I remember it like it was yesterday those last six, seven, eight weeks you feel so emotional and ready to pop like I want this to be over, I can’t wait to meet this baby!

Speaking of kids, Lopez’s twins Max and Emme just turned eight. The family celebrated the twins’ birthday at Disneyland.
