Lopez to Bring “So You Think You Can Dance” Winner to Her Las Vegas Residency

Jennifer Lopez is paying it forward…

The 46-year-old Puerto Rican singer, actress and American Idol judge, who got her first regular high-profile job as a Fly Girl dancer on Fox’s In Living Color in 1991, will give a little love to the winner of this season’s So You Think You Can Dance.

Lopez has announced the winner will have the chance to dance with her at her Las Vegas residency.

“So excited to be bringing this year’s winner of #SYTYCD with me to #TheAxis @PHVegas!!! #LetsGetIt #JLoVegas,” tweeted Lopez.

“Whether it is a stage or street dancer, I know you are going to choose someone to rip it because all of the dancers this year are sensational,” she told SYTYCD voters in a taped announcement following the group number on the Fox competition.

As previously reported, Lopez is set to premiere her residency starting on January 20 at Axis theater stage in Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino (a part of Caesar’s Entertainment).

“It’s really an exciting prospect for me to create the quintessential Jennifer Lopez experience in Vegas,” she told Billboard. “It’s just an opportunity that is overwhelming and at the same time the most exciting thing that has happened to me in a long time, so I’m giving it all I have.”

The show is getting closer to finding a winner. Last night dancers JJ Rabone and Edson Juarez were sent home.
