The girl has got chutzpah.

Last time we saw Tiffany Rios of Morris Plains on American Idol, she accentuated her physique with strategically placed stars that caught the judges’ attention.

Thursday she toned down the costumed and turned up the attitude.

“I’m going to be honest,” she declared on stage in Pasadena, CA. “I’m tired of seeing people try to do what I know I can do.”

This won her few fans in the auditorium. After Tiffany sang, Jennifer Lopez was overheard at the judges’ table remarking to colleagues Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson: “Not likable.”

Maybe not. But they advanced the 21-year-old dance teacher to the next round.

What will Tiffany try next?

We don’t know. But we’re sure it won’t be boring.
