Jennifer Lopez Gives Italy Some ‘Love’

thatgrapejuice50 Jennifer Lopez Gives Italy Some Love

Jennifer Lopez made a guest appearance at the 60th Annual Sanremo Music Festival in Sanremo, Italy yesterday. Jenny from the block performed a medley of her biggest hits including ‘Jenny from the Block’, ‘Waiting for Tonight’, ‘Love Don’t Cost a Thing’, ‘Get Right’ and ‘Let’s Get Loud’. Lopez also did a rendition of ‘What Is Love’, a new song which is supposedly from her new album, ‘Love?’, which hits stores in April.

‘What Is Love’

‘Jenny from the Block’/‘Waiting for Tonight’/‘Love Don’t Cost a Thing’/‘Get Right’/‘Let’s Get Loud’

Once again, as has become the usual with Lopez over the last few months, she lip-synced the entire performance. I find it interesting that she has adopted this approach to her performances as of late. Unlike her idol Janet Jackson or her younger counterpart Ciara, Lopez’s choreography does not seem so intense that she can’t at least ad-lib a few live notes during her performances. Certainly the generally unresponsive crowd should have given her an indication that she needed to shake things up somehow.

Still, I enjoyed watching her perform some of her older material and after observing the look of gratitude (or was that desperation?) on her face on the end, I sense that Lopez appreciates any applause she can get at this point. Hopefully, things look up for her because it’s a shame to see such hard work go unrewarded.

Thoughts?

    the crowd was unresponsive because the sanremo festival , is for older people , it’s not like a typical festival with young people that make noise!

    trent she lip synched What is love but the old stuff was live …anyways i respect her hustle she is dancing and singing , i believe she wore herself out , and i think she was holding back , but it was decent nonetheless

    this festival is not for young people and not for people with lack of taste you moron, just because in the USA or in your place you only listen to buble gum pop it doesnt mean the others have to listen to it too, mediterean europe has its own culture and only a few artists get respected here (Beyonce, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Mariah ), not this b****, she sucks, always sucked, I dont even know how she got that much success in her prime

    I really hope she keeps What is Love. that should have been the first single off of the album. (And her vocals sound excellent on it.)

    hopefully she’ll release it as a single.

    Even though Jennifer Lopez the music artist is not my flavor, she gave a decent performance.

    She may have given some love but you (Sam, Trent) certainly don’t. I could agree on Sanremo, I dislike it to the most, but you don’t need to be always so hateful in your posts. You make people commenting even more hateful.
