It’s set to be one of the most glamorous nights in Las Vegas entertainment next Wednesday when Jennifer Lopez premieres her headliner residency show “All I Have” at Axis at Planet Hollywood. J.Lo. has promised 40 shows over the next two years on the Strip.
Stars scheduled to fly in and walk the red carpet before curtain up include Jessica Alba, Cheryl Burke, Kristen Chenoweth, Ryan Guzman, Derek Hough, Kiesza, Ray Liotta, Holly Madison, Ne-Yo, Kelly Osbourne, Ryan Seacrest, T.I., Wilmer Valderrama, Cash Warren, Keenan Ivory Wayans and Rebel Wilson.
J.Lo is promising an explosive and emotional 90-minute show with signature stunning costumes, incredible choreography, state-of-the-art technology and a closing EDM dance party for fans to dance in the aisles. She’s been rehearsing in Los Angeles and here at Planet Hollywood.
“The sky’s the limit with what we’re creating,” she told me. There will be seven changes of sets and costumes, some by Versace.
“I’ve spent my entire life waiting for this moment to create my own show. It’s going to be the best J.Lo show you’ve ever seen and heard. Everything from Latin to Broadway, from burlesque to ballads, from funk to salsa. This will be my take, my spin on Las Vegas. ”
Incredibly, J.Lo will commute back and forth between Las Vegas and Los Angeles for the final shoots for the final Season 15 of Fox’s “American Idol.” Her longtime hip-hop choreographers husband-and-wife Napoleon and Tabitha D’umo, who attended UNLV and work as NappyTabs, have helped create the show with the star.
After the glittering, star-studded premiere, J.Lo will host her official celebration party with celebrated restaurateur Michael Chow at his new Mr. Chow in Caesars Palace. Watch out for limo gridlock on the Strip next Wednesday night!

Catering to the young and modern crowd, Planet Hollywood is a one-stop shop for entertainment with its massive shopping mall, slew of restaurants, spacious casino and clubs.
The ambiance of the casino is retro-chic meets high-tech with black granite floors throughout and colorful LED lights throughout the space. The theme carries into the 100,000 square-foot casino with 250 flat screens topping off slot machines. The casino is also home to 87 tables, a sports book and a poker room.
There's also the Miracle Mile Shops, one Vegas' largest malls, with 140 stores including BCBG Max Azaria, bebe, Urban Outfitters and The Discovery Channel Store.
Following an afternoon of shopping, guests can satisfy their appetites at one of the gourmet restaurants in Planet Hollywood, like the non-traditional approach to steakhouses at Strip House or check out the exotic Far East motif at KOI restaurant and lounge. And if guests are still looking for more, they can spend the after hours at Privé, Triq or Krave nightclubs.
Perhaps one of the resorts biggest attractions came in March with the addition of "Peepshow." The naughty twist on the story of Little Bo Peep is modern-day spin on the run-of-the-mill Vegas topless review. The "Peepshow" stage has seen visiting celebs like Scary Spice Mel B, "Dancing with the Stars" Kelly Monaco and Playboy's Holly Madison.
