I have to agree with your review. However, the reason why Jennifer gave a lackluster performance was due to her pregnancy. Her pregnant tummy was obvious. Because she's known for dancing, great videos, and catchy songs her "live" performance really missed the mark. But what would you expect from someone who was visibly pregnant. At least she sang "live" unlike most pop stars.

I don't understand why soo many people go off on her singing. She's never been a strong vocalist. But neither is Brittney Spears who ALWAYS lipsyncs. Madonna, Janet Jackson, Ashley Simpson and MOST of pop stars. They're not great powerhouse singers like Celine, Mariah or Whitney. Yet, people throw Jennifer Lopez under the bus but not Brittney or Janet.

Marc Anthony is a Salsa legend but that's it. Jennifer Lopez is an international star. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't have gone to see Marc.

Monica, I agree with your post. Jennifer Lopez is a very versatile artist. Unlike the pseudo-Disney created Brit. Spears who I've yet to understand why she is even mentioned in all music review. She is as false as a wooden nickel.
