She went on and said :
     "But the judges are fantastic, they're brilliant at what they do and they're fun to watch. The chemistry between J.Lo and Harry and Keith, they're wonderful, but I think that [at] a certain point maybe everything comes to a close. Maybe it's run its course, but it's a show that changed people's lives, changed my life too. Really legitimate super stars came out of the show, and people's dreams have come true and they’re living it."
