JLo: I'm bringing the glam to Vegas

Jennifer Lopez will fuse her Latin and hip-hop sides together for her Las Vegas show.

The US star has been revered for her work in both music and movies, which all makes for an ideal Las Vegas star.

Jennifer's residency will be at Planet Hollywood, kicking off on January 20 2016.

"I think I've been preparing for this my whole life. I'm excited about going to Vegas [and] doing the kind of quintessential show that I've always had in my mind," Jennifer exclaimed to ET. [I'm going to embrace] my Latin side, my fun side, and my hip-hop side.

"It's gonna have everything that I've been known to do over the years, and it's gonna be a beautiful, glamorous kind of Vegas show. Something that I think people, whether you're a fan of my music or not, would come and see and really enjoy. That's my goal."

Before she gets to Sin City, the 46-year-old is on the hunt for the last ever winner of American Idol. The show is wrapping after 15 seasons, bowing out in 2016. Jennifer is joined by judges Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban to crown a winner, with Ryan Seacrest taking on hosting duties one last time.

"I think [it's] just a really exciting season. We'd rather have an extraordinary tight group of kids than a bunch of kind of good [ones]. OK, we're not going for good this year - we're going for over the top!" she smiled.

On top of these two work commitments Jennifer is also filming new TV show Shades of Blue. Her work schedule may be jam packed at the moment, but the star always makes time for her boyfriend Casper Smart. The pair went through a rocky patch last year when the dancer was accused of cheating with two transgender models. After briefly splitting, they are now back on track.

"It's a lot of work, this business, but we do our best," she said of the romance.
