‘It’s close… not that close, right?’ announced Jennifer Lopez from the stage at Media City, after dividing the crowd into male and female and asking each faction to scream on demand. ‘We so smashed them,’ added the American singer-turned-actor. She wasn’t wrong: the gender balance was clearly skewed towards the fairer sex. This was one of a few rare breaks in the 43-year-old’s tightly crafted set, packed with chart hits, glitzy costume changes and impressive dance routines. The tempo dipped for her debut single, ‘If You Had My Love’, but it was encore ‘Dance Again’ that got the youth-centric crowd on their feet.
