Jennifer Lopez Launching Her New Album, “This is Me…Now” on “Saturday Night Live” February 3rd


Last year, Jennifer Lopez was sitting front and center at the Grammy Awards with Ben Affleck. Remember, he looked so glum? She was not nominated for anything.

Anyway, she’s found something to do this year instead. JLo will be musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” on February 3rd. Critics Choice Award and Emmy winning star of “The Bear,” Ayo Edibiri, will be the host.

Lopez is launching her album, “This is Me…Now” on the show. How they will handle her famous lip syncing is anyone’s guess. “SNL” used to have a hard and fast rule about that, but I’m not sure they’ve stuck to it recently. Lopez’s first single from the album, “Can’t Get Enough,” has been a dud so far, so she needs “SNL” more than ever.

One thing to say about JLo: she’s not a great singer, but she’s a fun dancer, and a good comedienne. Expect a lot of skits about weddings, and so on.
