JLo announced on the season finale of American Idol 14 that she was able to secure a residency contract from one of the major casinos in Las Vegas. Lopez, along with Mariah Carey and Britney Spears, are three of the latest artists to join the ever-growing number of pop divas who regularly perform in Sin City.
Lopez is set to perform 19 shows during the months of January, February, May, and June in 2016. She will still be a judge on the 15th season of American Idol – which is reported to be the final season of one of America’s most watched reality TV show – despite her residency work that would demand countless hours of preparation and practice on her part. JLo will be performing her shows at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino – the establishment where Britney Spears also performs – and she couldn’t be luckier to be performing in such prestigious casino for the following reasons:
- Information portal Mayfair Casinos describes Planet Hollywood as a “striking mix of Hollywood’s greatest features and Las Vegas entertainment.” The place is a popular joint for both young adults and the more mature demographic who are always on the lookout for high-class entertainment.
- Planet Hollywood’s Axis Theater is a 7,000 seat capacity venue and is well known for its indoor amphitheater that is able to provide the best sound quality for its guests. Installed in the theater is one of the largest video projection machines in the world, and 2,200 square feet of high-def LED walls.
- Planet Hollywood is one of the easiest establishments to spot on the Las Vegas Strip. It is just a 5-minute walk from the popular Bellagio Fountains and about 1.2 miles away from the Madame Tussauds Las Vegas Wax Museum.
