Singer Jennifer Lopez is giving up her spot on the panel for center stage as she performs on May 3rd episode of American Idol. The American Idol judge will show the remaining contestants how to shake their derrière when she performs her controversial song “Dance Again” with boy toy boyfriend Casper Smart, Celebuzz has exclusively learned.
The music video for the single, a collaboration with rapper Pitbull, debuted on April 5. Now, 42-year-old J.Lo and Casper, 25, will re-create the smoldering scenes from the sexy video with a live performance that one production source described as “sensational” and in the same league as her performance of “On the Floor” during last year’s Idol.
“J.Lo’s dancers began learning the choreography for the routine about a week ago and Jennifer joined them for a rehearsal last Saturday (April 21),” a production source reported. “There’s another week-and-a-half of intense rehearsals before the performance.”
The source continued: "There’s no word yet on whether Lopez will pre-tape the “Dance Again” performance and air it as-live, as she did for “On The Floor.”We recently revealed how J.Lo is set to tour with heartthrob Enrique Iglesias, so now we have two things to look forward to!
