J to tha L-O, Hello! showed why she’s an all-around diva Saturday night with the no-holds-barred show she put on at Honda Center, her first of three co-headlining area appearances this week with Enrique Iglesias.
“Hello, lovers,” Nuyorican beauty Jennifer Lopez greeted after an extended Disneyesque intro featuring a video, an array of backup dancers and singers and bright lights, all contributing to a nonstop show that was nothing less than the sort of exuberant entertainment you’d expect from “Jenny from the Block.”

Lopez gave fans in Anaheim close to 90 minutes of dramatization, often reenacting some of her most popular videos. “How about I go back to the Bronx?” she asked. “I’m just a simple girl from the Bronx. Don’t let the sparkly pants fool you.”
She then added a hoodie and a matching New York cap to her outfit, because “it makes me feel tough,” as the set gave way to a montage of the hits “I’m Real” and “Ain’t It Funny” (from her 2001 album J.Lo) and “All I Have” and “Jenny from the Block” (from 2002′s This Is Me … Then), almost all of which were accompanied by their respective clips.
