Tears of joy, of course.

Twenty-three year old Paris Tassin of New Orleans performed Carrie Underwood's hit single, "Temporary Home" for her audition last night on American Idol, which brought judge Jennifer Lopez to tears.

She hit all the notes, but her voice exhibited an unprecedented warmth — and that’s what moved J. Lo to tears.

Tassin, who told the judges’ panel that she likes to sing pop and country tunes, also shed a tear, saying, “I do that for my daughter. I want to teach her to go for her dreams.”
