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!
