Gladiator boots might not be for everyone, but Jennifer Lopez rocked a pair for the "American Idol XIV" red carpet.
Lopez donned Sophia Webster gladiator boots with a thigh-high slit skirt for Tuesday night's event at CBS Television City in Los Angeles. The 45-year-old appeared alongside fellow judges Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. to promote the upcoming season -- Lopez's fourth as a judge -- of the reality competition, which premieres Jan. 7.
"When I took the step to go on 'American Idol,' which everybody thought -- in my life -- wasn't a good idea, but in my gut I felt like this is the right thing, this is something I should do," she told USA Today last month. "It's about music. I love it. I feel like I have something to offer to this. When I did it, there was no script and there was no song, and it was just me being me, and people liked me. It was such a great response."
