The love life of Charlotte is reduced to an endless string of disastrous blind dates, until she meets the perfect man, Kevin. Unfortunately, his merciless mother will do anything to destroy their relationship.
That J-Lo concert moved me so much. In some of the songs, especially the ones with Latin roots, I was dancing out of the chair. "Let's Get Loud" was the best song in that concert.
There are several other things that I liked about the concert:
The concert had a variety of songs---a mixture of Latin songs and some that were not Latin. This shows J-Lo's talent as a real crossover artist like that of Ricky Martin.
The house band in the J-Lo concert reminded me from something taking out of the Escovedo orchestra. For instance, in the song "Carino", the house band started out the song as a rumba, and then later on, the music morphed into a cross between salsa and funk---also known as Latin fusion--often done by the Escovedo orchestra. This variety of music moved me since I am a fan of the Escovedo family of musicians, and I loved it.
I also like the varied use of theatrics in the J-Lo concert, from the Jumbotron visualizations and moving theater lights all the way to rising stage platforms and pyrotechnic effects. Therefore, it was like a magical and a circus-filled atmosphere from start to finish.
I also like J-Lo by itself. Her dance moves were varied and I especially like the sequences when she does side-by-side movements with her house dancers.
