Jennifer Lopez Announces Las Vegas Residency

by at .

Jennifer Lopez is about to have something in common with Celine Dion, Mariah Carey and Britney Spears:

A totally ridiculous bank account.

The American Idol judge announced last night that she has signed on for a Las Vegas residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.

It will kick off in January of 2016 and, based on a report from last October, it will net Lopez a crazy amount of money.

Last year, TMZ wrote that Lopez was set to sign a deal that would earn her $350,000 per show. Yes, that is $350,000 PER SHOW.

It's unclear if she has reached that same agreement and it's unclear at the moment just how many performances J. Lo will put on per year.

But she won't be going hungry any time soon.

"I've been preparing for this moment my entire life," Lopez said in a statement. "The show is going to be a multifaceted high energy Jenny from the Block party, mixing all aspects of what my fans and I love - Dance, Hip Hop, Latin and Pop.

"It's going to be the show I've always dreamt of creating."

Tickets for the first 20 performances will go on sale to the public this Saturday.

American Idol will kick off its final season next year, with Lopez expected to remain a judge while balancing her time between Los Angeles and Vegas.

"As a chart topping recording artist, world-class actress and best-selling author, Jennifer Lopez is the perfect addition to the exciting lineup at The AXIS, further solidifying Planet Hollywood as the city's destination for premier live entertainment," Planet Hollywood said.

"Jennifer's show will be the perfect combination of a cutting-edge production spectacular and an extraordinarily fun night-out, all centered around a supremely talented international superstar.
