Jennifer Lopez to Perform ‘I’m Into You’ May 5 on ‘American Idol’
Jennifer Lopez is not just an 'American Idol' judge. She's also an 'American Idol' performer, as the quadruple threat singer/actress/dancer/judge will take the stage and perform her new single, 'I'm Into You,' on the show's May 5 episode.
The song boasts the same kind of street cred that defined her 'Jenny From the Block' days and features rapper Lil Wayne. This summer-ready jam is the follow up the fierce 'On the Floor,' which features Pitbull and re-established Lopez as a recording artist to be reckoned with.
Lopez, who has been almost motherly in her commentary towards and treatment of the 'Idol' contestants this season, will have a chance to show, rather than tell, the hopefuls how to do it all, when she takes the stage to perform the song. We can't help but wonder if Weezy will join her when she debuts the song live on a national platform. We can dream, right?
'I'm Into You' is slated to appear on Lopez's next album (and Island Def Jam debut), 'Love?,' which is due out sometime this year. With her favorable work on 'Idol' and a pair of bumpin' songs, 2011 is shaping up to be a return-to-form year for J. Lo. All she needs is a hit romantic comedy and it'll feel like 2001 all over again.
