Jennifer Lopez, the singer, actress, and ‘American Idol’ judge, has promised to give her fans her best performance in the upcoming Las Vegas Residency.
At a recent kick-off function, she said that the Vegas Residency will be the highlight of her career and will serve as a crescendo effect of all the various musical acts she has done so far in her life including singing on stage, judging shows, touring and doing award shows. She felt that all her life’s preparation was to reach this pinnacle in performance. Her goal was to put up a show in one place where people from the across the globe would come to watch her perform.
The 46-year-old entertainer, who is presently judging the American Idol’s farewell season in the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, is very busy this summer. She is shooting for Shades of Blue, an upcoming NBC drama and a reality TV series on Fox. She also features in two singles ‘Back it Up’ with Prince Royce and ‘El Mismo Sol’ with Alvaro Soler. Despite her extremely busy schedule, she is highly focused on working hard to give her best performance in the Las Vegas Residency and live up to her fans’ expectations. She is looking at the upcoming Residency as a culmination of the quintessential Jennifer Lopez, she said.
The Residency would include live band hip-hop and funk musicals and feature gorgeous, beautiful and glamorous costumes. Like her ‘Dance Again’ tour of 2012, this show is also expected to have special elements such as elaborate Broadway-like settings, dancers with top hats all of which are characteristics of live shows of the ‘On the Floor’ singer. The DVD of the 2012 ‘Dance Again’ show is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com.
When queried about whether Pia Toscano of Season 9 will join her in the Las Vegas Residency, Lopez smiled and said that it could be a possibility as Toscano has been backing up her vocals for the last 2 years and she loves her and enjoys having Toscano on her shows. Earlier, Pia Toscano also joined Season 8’s Allison Iraheta and Season 11’s Jessica Sanchez to back Lopez on ‘I Luh Ya Papi’, a track she played for an American Idol Show. The Las Vegas show is expected to kick-off at the Axis theatre in Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in January.
