Jennifer Lopez will host and perform tracks from her upcoming Las Vegas residency at the American Music Awards (AMAs) which will take place at Los Angeles’ Microsoft theatre next month.
Award nominees, who are selected based on album sales, radio airplay, touring and social media, will be announced by singers Joe Jonas and Charlie Puth on October 13.
Meanwhile, Lopez has compared her preparations for live shows to “training like a fighter” because she has to be in peak physical condition to combine singing with tough choreography.
She told DigitalSpy: “For me it was building up the stamina to do it. I knew I could. It’s just one of those things: you really have to train. You have to see where you’re going to do everything and how you’re going to do it.
“OK, I’m not going to sing on this chorus because the choreography is too demanding – it’s different things like that.
“You have to plan and plot it out so the audience gets the best experience.
“You train like a fighter for a fight; you build yourself up to be able to physically handle it.”
