Jennifer Lopez was given a thrill during auditions for American Idol in Nashville, Tennessee last year (14) when a romantic 20-year-old student insisted on slow-dancing with her.

Michael Simian wowed Lopez and fellow judges Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. with his rendition of a Sam Smith song and then had an odd request for the singer/actress.

Urban took Simian's guitar and Connick, Jr. took over the audition room piano and performed Stay With Me as their fellow judge danced with the young wannabe with her head on his shoulder.

After the magical moment, which featured in an episode of American Idol on Wednesday (07Jan15), Lopez told her dance partner, "You're so sweet. That's the most fun I've had in months."

Lopez has previously romanced a number of dancers, including former husband Cris Judd and ex-boyfriend Casper Smart.
