Last night I stayed up until 12:50am watching J-Lo Live In Puerto Rico on Channel 4.
Recently I've heard/read people insulting Jennifer's singing, saying stuff like it's not very strong, and also female singers also seem to sound a bit rough and shouty live (Christina Aguilera) also put me off, so I have to admit, although I love Jennifer a lot and ahe's my favourite artist, I wasn't expecting much from her voice live.
Hell was I wrong. From the moment "Lets Get Loud" kicked in and she came down the stairs singing I was hooked and didn't want it to ever end. I was blown away. She sounded brilliant, and I think the fact that she's also an actress doesn't get her as much recognition for this, as most singers/actresses are stereotyped as not being good at one or the other. It was fantastic. The songs sounded even better with the live band. The choreography was just great - done by her husband Cris, but I would have liked to have seen him on stage with her, when they're on stage together they work really well and feed off each other. I seriously couldn't fault it, it was just excellent. It's coming out on DVD soon, I'm going to buy it! I really hope she does a UK tour and I'll be the first to get tickets if she does!
