As if we’re surprised! Jennifer Lopez’s vocal coach has been hard at work getting the star ready for her upcoming residency in Vegas, and he says she sounds absolutely insane! We can’t wait to get our tickets.
Jennifer Lopez, 45, announced her residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas back in May, but we won’t be able to see her in action until January 2016. No fair! The word on the street is that this show is going to be amazing, and her vocal coach, Stevie Mackey, can vouch for it; he thinks she sounds totally incredible. Well, we’re on our way to Nevada right now!
It’s no secret that we’re big fans of JLo around here. The singer and American Idol judge is a total style icon — and now she’s joining the long line of talented ladies who have lent their voices to long residencies at Las Vegas hotels and casinos, giving the people what they want: all divas, all the time! Mariah Carey, Shania Twain, Britney Spears — and now, Jennifer Lopez! Vegas is the place to be, boys and girls!
“We’re getting JLo ready for her residency in Vegas,” Stevie told HollywoodLife.com. “She sounds incredible. You’d be missing out if you didn’t come to Vegas to hear her.” Count us in! Jennifer’s voice is always perfect, but with such a famed vocal coach giving his seal of approval, you know this is going to be good.
Jennifer’s residency begins on January 20, 2016 at the Axis theater at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, where Britney currently performs. This means Brit’s long reign will finally end. JLo is signed up for 19 more shows at this time, spaced out between January, February, May and June. Don’t worry, she’s still keeping up her American Idol duties at the same time — that’s probably why her shows aren’t all happening at once.
So what should we expect when Jenny hits this block? We’re really excited that the show’s going to cover all the elements of her career, from the “Waiting For Tonight” days, to her latest hits like “Booty.” Sounds like a party!
