La’Porsha immediately broke down in tears after her performance on ‘American Idol,’ which followed a pretape revealing her abusive past relationship. JLo immediately started crying on March 17 episode and revealed, ‘We’ve all been through stuff like that’!
Warning: you will get goosebumps and/or cry during this video. La’Porsha Renae took on “No More Drama” during her performance this week on American Idol, after an intro package of her explaining her abusive relationship that ended right before the show — and the emotion came through in her voice. It not only had the single mom, 25, crying — but Jennifer Lopez absolutely broke down. Watch the video here!
“It takes a lot of strength to overcome those things in your life, baby,” JLo told La’Porsha afterwards, with tears in her eyes. “I know. Everybody knows. We’ve all been through stuff like that. You know what I mean? Honestly, you’re an inspiration. It was so beautiful. You put it in your music. You don’t over do it. It was powerful. Thank you for that moment.”
Ryan Seacrest also added that La’Porsha has “incredible courage”. “We should just leave it at that, because there are just no words. Amazing,” he said. You can also hear Keith Urban adding, “You’re so inspiring.”
After the performance, La’Porsha spoke to People about why she chose to share such a hard time. “It was something that needed to happen,” she said. “I got out of that bad relationship in April and came straight into American Idol so I didn’t have time to heal. Having America pick this song for me forced me to face the feelings I had been running from. That’s why I got so emotional.”
