SAN FRANCISCO – Wednesday night’s American Idol auditions were anything but boring.  Hopeful Samuel Prince, after bowing to Jennifer Lopez and proclaiming her ‘Puerto Rico’s Queen,’ asked the judges to act out an improvised telenovela with him, and they did!

Showing off her improv prowess, JLo listened while Samuel accused her of cheating on him with Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban, and then promptly smacked him in the face.

Watch below:

Looks like Samuel may have a promising telenovela career in the works. If American Idol doesn’t pan out, perhaps he should try Jane the Virgin?
