JENNIFER LOPEZ – Dance Again World tour 2012
Actress, entertainer, music artist, film & TV producer, fashion designer, entrepreneur and
humanitarian Jennifer Lopez has been called one of the most powerful and celebrated
celebrities in entertainment.
She has sold over 55 million records worldwide and starred in multiple box-office #1 films,
including “Monster-In-Law” and “The Wedding Planner.” In 2001, “The Wedding Planner”
was the nation’s top-grossing film, while her album, “J.Lo,” was #1 on the Billboard Top 200
Chart. The two simultaneous #1 honors made Lopez the first woman in history to have a #1
movie and #1 album in the same week.
In May 2011, Lopez released her highly anticipated album, “LOVE?,” on Island/Def Jam
Records. The first single, “On The Floor” (featuring rapper Pitbull) shot to #1 in 18 countries
and became the most downloaded song of her career. The music video set an all-time record
making Jennifer the first female artist on Vevo to rack up 100 million views in the shortest
amount of time. The music video has become the most watched music video by any female
artist in the history of YouTube, logging in over a staggering 450 million views. The year has
been filled with many accolades and awards including the American Music Awards Best
Latin Artist of the Year and Glamour Magazine named Lopez as “Woman of the Year” with a
cover on the year end issue.
The “Love?” album brought together some of today’s hottest producers, songwriters and
superstar artists, including producer, RedOne, Stargate, Taio Cruz, Tricky Stewart, The-
Dream, Danja, D-Mile, and Radio. Lady Gaga also collaborated on two tracks, “Hypnotico”
(which she co-wrote) and “Invading My Mind” (which she co-produced). Rapper Lil Wayne

Antonio “L.A.” Reid.
In addition to returning for Season 11 of “American Idol” in 2012, Lopez will launch the
groundbreaking series “¡Q’ Viva! The Chosen” along with choreographer Jamie King and
