Earlier this week, Jennifer Lopez announced her first Las Vegas residency beginning January 2016 at Planet Hollywood. While the 45-year-old singer isn’t the best vocalist around, there’s no denying she’s one of the best performers in the industry. Woman knows how to put on an entertaining show.
J. Lo gave fans a taste of what to expect with her Vegas stint. She performed a medley of her greatest hits, including “If You Had My Love,” “Love Don’t Cast a Thing,” “Jenny From a Block,” “Get Right,” and “On the Floor” on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Watch her energetic performance below. Props for singing live.
Jennifer Lopez following in Britney Spears, Celine Dion and Mariah Carey’s Las Vegas footsteps isn’t shocking news. Word of her possible residency first surfaced last year. The 45-year-old diva made it official this week with a video announcement.
“I’ve been preparing for this moment my entire life,” adding, “The show is going to be a multifaceted high energy Jenny from the Block party, mixing all aspects of what my fans and I love – Dance, Hip Hop, Latin and Pop. It’s going to be the show I’ve always dreamt of creating.”
Lopez’s stint at Planet Hollywood’s AXIS Theater begins on January 20, 2016. American Express cardholders can purchase pre-sale tickets beginning on May 13, and the rest of the public can buy seats, starting May 16. Tickets range from $59 to $219. As of now, only 20 concert dates have been announced. No word if more dates will follow.
Check out the video below to get a sense of what to expect with J. Lo’s high-energy show.
20 years ago, Selena Quintanilla was murdered by her fan club’s president, Yolanda Saldívar. Jennifer Lopez played the fallen Tejano superstar in the 1997 film Selena. She lip synced to Selena’s songs in the film, but last night the 45-year-old entertainer used her own vocals to pay tribute to the slain singer.
Lopez was joined on stage with Quintanilla’s family band, Los Dinos. Together they performed “Como La Flor,” “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” and “I Could Fall In Love” and “No Me Queda Mas.” J.Lo also incorporated Selena’s fashion sense in her wardrobe- ruffles, bustier and high-waisted pants. Watch the sensational performance below.
“When she held that last note on ‘No Me Queda Mas’ it was amazing,” A.B. Quintanilla told Billboard. “The electricity was there and even though she was singing Selena’s songs, she made them her own tonight. She did a beautiful job.”
Everything Is 4 doesn’t drop for another month, but fans now know what to look forward to. Jason Derulo unveiled the tracklist for his fourth studio album which features some notable collaborations. The roster includes K. Michelle, Keith Urban, Stevie Wonder, Meaghan Trainor, Jennifer Lopez and more. The Trainor-assisted track is the one that has piqued my interest the most. Rumor has it that it’s a dance concoction.
Earlier this week, the 25-year-old R&B singer shared another buzz single. “Cheyenne” is a 1980s-tinged mid-tempo track that could’ve easily been recorded by Michael Jackson during that decade. The bassline is sick and so is his falsetto.
Even though, Derulo scored the one-two punch of “Wiggle” and “Talk Dirty” off his last album, I think Everything Is 4 will yield more hits. The infectious “Want to Want Me” is still generating heat and has the potential to top the charts. Check out “Cheyenne” below, along with his LP’s tracklist.
Jennifer Lopez performed her new ballad on last night’s episode of American Idol. Her choice of gown was relatively demure and prom-like and not the revealing and sparkly designs the 45-year-old entertainer typically wears.
After watching her new music video, it all makes sense. The gown’s train is used as a backdrop as animated aliens dance around her. In essence, J. Lo is a glorified projector screen ;)
“Feel The Light” is lifted off the soundtrack for Dreamworks’ animated film Home. Lopez provides the voice of Lucy Tucci, the mother of lead character Tip played by Rihanna. Check out her bright and colorful new visual below.
One of the most popular segments on The Tonight Show feature the guests squaring off against Jimmy Fallon in a lip sync battle. Fallon takes his dog and pony show over to Spike TV for a brand new series hosted by LL Cool J and supermodel Crissy Teigen. Think RuPaul’s Drag Race Lip Sync For Your Life but with no drag queens.
Lip Sync Battle (catchy title LOL) will pit two celebrities performing two songs per episode. The audience ultimately picks the winner.
The network just dropped a brand new star-studded trailer featuring The Rock performing Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” Stephen Merchant channeling his inner “Dirrty” and Anna Kendrick tackling Jennifer Lopez’s “Booty.”
To sway votes her way, the Pitch Perfect actress brings out J. Lo for a surprise cameo. Kendrick’s opponent, John Krasinksi, has something special up his sleeves for a rebuttal. Find out below. Lip Sync Battle commences on April 2 on Spike TV.
Both Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez provide voices for DreamWorks’ upcoming animated film, Home. RiRi plays a teenage girl named Tip while J. Lo taps into her maternal side to play her mother.
I wonder how the 45-year-old American Idol judge feels about that. To be fair, Lopez could pass more as her sister. Lopez has definitely found the fountain of youth and isn’t sharing her secrets.
RiRi forgoes the acoustic vibe of “FourFiveSeconds” and opts instead for a tribal beat for “Towards The Sun.” The track is somewhat reminiscent of her Coldplay collaboration, “Princess of China.” Meanwhile, Jenny from the Block goes the ethereal route with breathy vocals on the ballad “Feel The Light.”
Others featured on the film soundtrack include Kiesza and Charli XCX. Home hits theaters on March 27. Check out “Towards The Sun” and “Find The Light” below and weigh in afterwards.
Ten years ago today would forever change the landscape of the Internet. YouTube was officially founded by three former PayPal employees. The first video, however, wasn’t upload until April 23, 2005 by one of the co-founders. If you’re curious, “Me At The Zoo” can still be viewed on the video-sharing website.
In honor of YouTube’s 10th anniversary, I’ve embedded the Top 10 viewed videos. The lowest garnering 796,000 to the cream of the crop with over 2 billion clocks. Not surprisingly, music dominates the list. Especially Katy Perry and PSY who both nab two entries each. The sole exception being “Charlie Bit My Finger – Again!.” Check out the most popular clips ever below.
