Move over Mariah Carey!
For, after news surfaced that the 5 octave songbird is readying a nest on the Vegas strip in late 2015, reports now indicate that the ‘Vision of Love’ diva may be getting an eyeful of former nemesis Jennifer Lopez on that very circuit.
Earlier this week, we reported Lopez declined her initial offer. Now, with official numbers going public, it seems the ‘Waiting for Tonight’ singer may be weighing her options:
“Jennifer Lopez passed the “Vegas Residency Test” with flying colors on New Year’s Eve, and in the process scored more than $400K.
[According to sources], Lopez raked in $410,000 for her NYE performance at Caesars Palace…the point of the gig was to see if Lopez was a sufficient draw for a full-on residency.”
If the above rings true, the reignited competition between Lopez and Carey will certainly be cause for many a conversation piece – especially here at That Grape Juice. For, while it’s no secret that 2014 was unkind to both divas, the two are still fair concert draws – as evidenced by the sold out crowd in attendance to witness J.Lo’s NYE set and Carey’s NYC showings respectively.
As the strip stars get young and younger, Celine Dion, Shania Twain, and Britney Spears are proof that the stigma of Vegas being “where successful careers go to die” is slowly, but surely, being lifted. Lopez and Carey could continue that progression.
As ‘American Idol’ is no longer doing the trick for either, do you think Vegas runs will be just what the two need to spark interest in their newer projects?
