To the rhythm of ballads, funk and pop, U.S. singer and actress Jennifer Lopez exuded sensuality during the third concert of her “Dance Again” tour that took her to the Chilean capital, from where she will carry on to Brazil and Argentina.
At 42, J.Lo again showed herself to be an artist of a thousand faces with all the stagecraft acquired from years in the spotlight.
Surrounded by a stageful of dancers, Lopez kicked off the night with touches of cabaret and hits like “Get Right,” “Love Don’t Cost a Thing,” “I’m Into You” and “Waiting for Tonight.”
Fireworks shot skywards with the first notes, lighting effects and columns of smoke were accompanied by an overwhelming audiovisual display with videos that even made it entertaining waiting for each change of costume - there were at least six - for the queen of the night.
But between one lyric and the next, the popular artist also showed herself capable of interacting with fans - 11,000 came out to see her this Tuesday - much more than most singers of her fame and fortune.
With “Until It Beats No More”, her 4-year-old twins Emme and Max popped onto the screens in a video showing them with mom in a cuddly series of family takes.
For her final volley she let loose with two of her numbers most often heard on dance floors - “Let’s Get Loud” and “On the Floor,” and, after seeming to say goodbye with a “many thanks, Chile,” she returned onstage to close with “Dance Again,” the single that provided the name for the tour and which she sang in a duet with boyfriend Casper Smart.
