Jennifer Lopez Makes Show-Stopping Return To American Idol In Sheer Fishnet Minidress

Jennifer Lopez last year decided to leave her role as a judge on American Idol but, after just one season away, she's made a scene-stealing return at the premiere of the 13th series.

The 44-year-old was obviously keen to make an impression at the Royce Hall in California, and chose a striking fishnet-style Tom Ford dress with a sheer side panel and white Christian Louboutin shoes for her big moment.

She posed for pics with her fellow judges, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr, as well as host Ryan Seacrest.

Jen worked her honey-hued locks into sexy tousled waves, and rocked a nude lip and smokey eyes.

The singer and actress is on something of a style roll this week, wowing in another sultry dress on Monday night at the Fox All Star Winter TCA Party.
