American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez, also known as “Jenny From the Block” will be becoming Jenny From the Vegas Strip, as announced yesterday (May 13). Reports have revealed that, following the end of her judging stint on the hit FOX show next year, she will be taking up full residency in Sin City.
There had already been speculation circulating regarding the possibility of the 45-year-old making the move to Las Vegas in order to orchestrate her own show there, but it was only confirmed as of today by the entertainer herself. Her announcement was made during last night’s American Idol finale (Part 1, the results that dictate the winner are aired tonight).
She has confirmed a deal with Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino for a show, one which will begin in January of 2016. Lopez is very excited about her new career endeavor, stating that she has been preparing for this moment throughout her whole life and that her show will contain a mix of everything her fans love about her and more. An exact date for the opening of said show has yet to be announced.
