We're thinking the last thing you want to do after announcing your divorce is make nice at someone else's wedding, but that's exactly what Jennifer Lopez did over the weekend.

Of course, the reported $1 million price tag that was part and parcel with her showing up probably helped matters.

Just days after Lopez and Marc Anthony broke the surprise news that they were splitting after seven years of marriage, J.Lo put on her happy face and flew to the Ukraine, where she was hired to perform as the wedding singer for the son of Uzbek oil tycoon Azam Aslamov.

According to local reports, the do took place at the Crimean Aivazovskii Hotel on the Black Sea and the entire staff, down to the housekeeping crew, was sent away for the week while the multimillion-dollar affair was closed off only to the several hundred invited wedding guests, many of whom had been flown in specially by helicopter for the event.

With that kind of money, it almost seems like the American Idol judge's $1 million payday was a bargain.

As part of the deal, Lopez sang and danced for the bride and groom, performing a medley of her hits, including "Waiting for Tonight," "Let's Get Loud" and "On the Floor."

The 41-year-old didn't stay at the hotel—in fact she was whisked away after her performance into a fleet of armored cars—but was put up, along with her backup dancers, singers, crew and assorted entourage members at the $4,100-a-night-penthouse suit in the nearby hotel Ville Elena.

"Are you happy?" Lopez asked the crowd from the stage? "I am happy because I am here with you today!"

Divorce or not, for $1 million we could muster up some enthusiasm, too.
