Oh, yes

Jennifer Lopez is taking a Las Vegas stage and no, we're not just talking about the one from her All I Have residency. The 47-year-old superstar is set to perform at the Latin Grammys for the first time, confirms the star's rep.

It just so happens that it's also the year that her ex-husband Marc Anthony is named The Latin Recording Academy's Person of the Year. What a night it'll be for their twins Max and Emme!
