Get a peek at Jennifer Lopez's secret history with New Kids on the Block, and watch as she sizes up the remaining Idol contestants. Who does she think will win?

I'm Lauren, and this is your PopSugar Rush!

Jennifer: "There's tape out there for sure"
Leno: "Yes, in fact we have it right here."
Jennifer: "Nooooo!"

Even Jennifer Lopez had to start somewhere, and believe it or not, the superstar was once a backup dancer for New Kids on the Block. Jennifer appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last night, but she was completely caught off guard when the late night host surprised her by digging up footage of Jennifer getting down on stage with the new kids at the American Music Awards way back in 1991.

Jennifer made her grand entrance into the Tonight Show studio in a gorgeous Jenny Packham tulle baby doll dress to promote her new album Love? which hit stores just last week, and her single On the Floor continues to be in the top 10 on iTunes. Jennifer delivered a very sexy performance of the song on last week's American Idol, as the show whittled down its competition to just four remaining contestants: Hayley, James, Scotty, and Lauren.

So who does Jennifer think will win?

On today's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jennifer talks shop with former Idol judge Ellen, and even though Jennifer is not naming favorites, she does sound pretty excited about James and Hayley:

"James and Hayley, I mean those voices are out of this world. out of this world. And also James' performance quality is peaking, but so is Scotty's right now. And then you have Lauren who has an angel voice with all this character...

"It depends, who delivers in the next couple weeks is who is going to make it into the finals."

The American Idol finale airs on May 25. Jennifer may be playing coy with her winners' picks, but tell us who you think deserves to win in the comments.
