Jennifer Lopez kicked off her summer tour dedicated to her 50th birthday with two sold out shows in LA and proved that age ain’t nothin’ but a number!
Though there were several highlights, one of the best moments was when Jennifer shared a lovable and tender moment onstage with her mini-me, daughter Emme, 11, who she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony. Emme erupted unexpectedly from underneath the stage, and the adorable mother/daughter duo matched in red outfits. Emme clearly caught her parents singing chops, and she belted out a gorgeous rendition of “Limitless” with her mama. The two shared a sweet moment after they finished, with Jennifer giving her daughter a kiss and a giant hug, while Emme beamed with pride, clearly knowing she just nailed the performance.
The singer shared yet another emotional moment when she took a second to look at the sold out crowd and started tearing up as she realized what was in front of her. She recovered, though, and then took us for a ride on the 6 train with her dancers rocking out beside her as she kept hit after hit coming.
The world’s biggest birthday bash closed out with a bang as Jennifer appeared at the top of a gigantic birthday cake and even more balloons and confetti fell from The Forum’s sky while she sang “On The Floor.” Concert-goers hit balloons around like beach balls as Jennifer and her dancers matched perfectly in black and white. For her encore, Jennifer chose to pay homage to the great Gloria Estefan and sang “Let’s Get Loud.” Somehow, she looked as fresh and put together during the last song as she did at the beginning of the show! The It’s My Party tour concludes in Miami on July 27th, but picks back up with a few dates overseas in August.
All in all, Jennifer Lopez proved that she is her own best party planner as the party did not stop for one second during the two-hour extravaganza. Even all these years later, she really is just still Jenny from the Block!
