By Kamilah McLeod
International music superstar Jennifer Lopez headlined DIRECTV NOW’s 13th annual Super Saturday Night concert on Feb. 3, in downtown Minneapolis. The Lopez show was put on by Nomadic Live, a pop-up night club that took over the Minneapolis Armory for Super Bowl week. This year, the goal was take it into living rooms and mobile devices across America for the first time ever. The show was live-streamed on both AT&T AUDIENCE Network and DIRECTV NOW. Jennifer Lopez produced and starred in the dance competition series earlier this year, “World of Dance.” Her prolific music career has spanned more than three decades, and has logged more than 75 million records sold worldwide.
The star-studded party was attended by the biggest names in music, sports and entertainment including Lopez’s boyfriend Alex Rodriguez, plus This Is Us’ Milo Ventimiglia and Justin Hartley, Jennifer’s fellow World of Dance judges Ne-Yo and Derek Hough, DJ Khaled, Russell Wilson & Ciara, Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Foxx, Kelsea Ballerini, Miles Teller, Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Archie Manning, and many more! Lopez gave the ultimate concert for the sold-out crowd performing her new single “Us,” a tribute to Prince featuring a medley of his hits, “1999”, “When Doves Fly,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” and “Darling Nikki”. and her chart-topping hits “Waiting for Tonight,” “Jenny from the Block,” “On The Floor,” “I’m Real,” and more. As a special surprise, Ne-Yo joined Lopez on stage for a duet performance of “All I Have". DJ Khaled took the stage for a surprise performance of the crowd-favorite hit, “All the Way Up,” in between J Lo set.
AT&T donated $1 to the Hispanic Federation’s Puerto Rico Relief & Recovery Effort up to $200,000 for every use of the hashtag #JLONOW during the concert.
