Out Of This World – Jennifer Lopez Throws A Block Party

Jennifer Lopez wows Las Vegas audiences

“Vegas, there’s a new girl in town,” Jennifer Lopez declared after singing her first chart-topping single, “If You Had My Love” on opening night of her new residency. “I was born to do this.”

“JENNIFER LOPEZ: ALL I HAVE” is a booty-shaking dance party full of furs, feathers and fashion. Welcome to Jenny on the Strip.

The Shades of Blue actress and American Idol judge had been living la vida loca as she intensely prepared for her January show opening. With the help of a five-piece band, 16 dancers and countless costume changes, Lopez vigorously ran through a dynamic set that included “Love Don’t Cost a Thing,” “Let’s Get Loud,” “Dance Again” and “On the Floor.”

Her choreography ranged from street dance and burlesque to Latin hustle. Lopez returned to her roots, singing in front of a New York City Subway 6 train wearing sequined pink trousers and a Yankees cap for a baseball bat-swinging rendition of “Jenny from the Block.” She later added a heartfelt rendition of Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance,” which was her most personal and emotional song of the night. In the end, Lopez proved she’s dialed into her new zip code.
