Video: Jennifer Lopez Parodies Rihanna, Performs on ‘SNL’

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez goes from the block to 30 Rock. The triple threat played host and musical guest on this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live.” Among the highlights was the opening sketch where J.Lo acted as Rihanna in a parody of the “We Are the World” remake recording sessions.

She also performed two new songs, “Pieces” and an acoustic version of the Danja-produced “Starting Over” from her seventh studio album Love?, which she still plans to release this summer on a new label.

“Starting Over”

    @carl why hate? Jennifer was doing her thing Yup she sounded pitchey in the first song but so what? Mariah,Gaga even beyonce have sounded pitchey and off sometime the most important thing is she sang live, (Listen to Gaga perform pokerface a lot of her performances she was so pitchey and off key)

    I was quiet a shock to see her perform starting over I mean she was very very good she deffo has pipes and she is just coming back into the game, she pulled it off amazing, I cant belive how great she sounded in starting over she really nailed it,

    Am so proud of jennifer and No one can not say she cant sing when she clearly can, She aint no whitney but dam her vocals have really got better!

    U go Jennifer people always wanna see u fall and u still get out there u make your fans so proud!

  16. Rashaan

    Am I the only one that had the volume up on my computer???? Now I have supported JLO in the past but these songs are not cutting it! She does not have the voice to lead these songs…this is my opinion and not hating on her!

    That sucks, hating others’ success is not a way to construct anything. Why didn’t she try to do something better if she (or they) thinks this We are the world II isn’t that good? At least, Rihanna and other famous persons who appears in Part II, raised a lot of money.. So why keep on hating? Only for personal interests I guess…

    She should go back to the On-The-6-era. She sings horrible and the music is completely crap.

    [Reply]

  20. Dave

    Ya know. Overrall it was. B+ the effort was obviously there. But she needs to keep practicing if she really wants to establish herself or the world gonna forget about her like sisqo. She should have done an upbeat track.

    She has good range live. But, her voice i’m not to sure about that.

  23. concerned listener

    Are you people deaf? My ears literally bled as this ally cat struggled to bleat out these uninspired love ballads. She’s got to come harder than this, although she looks great, her vocals should have been prerecorded.

    J.Lo sounds terrible, lady GaGa sounds better then her!

    The truth is is never could sing, she’s is a dancer that did what other young beautiful ladys do to get in the music business!

    Shes’ Done!!

    I LOVE Jennifer Lopez…Nd i was really hoping she wasnt gunna lip synch, and thank god she didnt! The skits wernet that memorable as the ones in 2001, but it was still good. Now i really cant wait for LOVE?

    [Reply]

  37. Princess

    Now everyone knows that Jen SINGS LIVE!!! she was so good and i really liked the songs Pieces,She doesn`t` have a Celine Dion voice we all know but she do her notes well and we have to admit that singing live is a bit difficult.In my country lots of singers came and sang live like Enrique Inglesias,Lady Gaga,Black eyed peas etc and they all weren`t` that good when they sang live cos like i said it`s a bit difficult.She really acted good i really laughed and enjoy it.Keep up the good work Jen can`t wait to hit the beach in summer with your new album Love?

  38. tell'em

    “Starting Over” was decent at best. She pales in comparison to most singers on the market and this just proved it. Wow, she sung live!…Shes a singer, she should’ve been doing that all along. And the skit was a miss, SNL is slacking.

    And no I’m not hating just stating my opinion and most share it hence her relevance fading in the music industry.

  45. Sasha Jordan

    Are you kidding me? She can’t carry a tune to save her life! That cat suit doesn’t help her horrible voice-it was pure comedy!! With all her money after all of this time she still can’t sing and needs to give it up. Learn from Madonna, girl. (You see she doesn’t try to act anymore) Don’t go chasing waterfalls- PLEASE stick to the rivers and lakes that you’re used to!! Thank god she’s pretty.

  46. Julian

    Are you kidding me ? Sasha jordan is an other stupid haters , with no life !!

    J.LO did great performance ! love her

    [Reply]

  47. Definitive

    Poor stupid haters with no life, that just shows how insecure can be a person (for you Sasha Jordan). Jennifer Lopez did a great job, and i’m not a fan. Before this, I was think that J.Lo’s career was over (with that “Flopoutins” thing) but if she focuses on some of her new songs like “everybody’s girl” or “what is love?”, she definitely get back, plus this type of performances makes a good promotion!!!

    SO MUCH HATERS HERE ? bouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

    Anyway J.LO killed it , great girl ! Hope a tour .

  52. ladie

    I was there during the dress rehearsal of the show and thought her singing was horrible!!! I honestly felt sorry for her. She has guts! lol. I then went home and caught the live show and thought she was just as bad. She is beautiful and has many talents but singing isn’t one of them!!! Goes to tell you what money can do for a person. ;)

    [Reply]

  53. Fella

    I was also there during the dress rehearsal of the show , and she sing better than the live . she a great singer , go jennifer .

    [Reply]

  54. Marsha

    BWAAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA @ladie AND @fella..

    so both of you contradict each other!

    @ladie you say HORRIBLE, do you even know what HORRIBLE singing is??

    come now, i will show you, cos even tho’ she aint a celine dion, but thats far from Horrible!!

    [Reply]

  55. ladie

    @Marsha – Do you even know what tone deaf is? Because apparently you and some others seem to suffer from it! ;)

    [Reply]

  56. Marsha

    Yes Apparently i forgot you suffer from Alzheimers!
    Sorry babe!

    Between bass,tenor, and the tiniest voice – find which jennifer is, and i dont think you will find her in HORRIBLE!as u stateD S/M!!
    Horrible is for somebody who cant even ”start” a song, a note – GET IT!!!

    [Reply]

  57. ladie

    That doesn’t even make sense.. I have Alzheimers and that means what in this case? Plus you said YOU FORGOT I suffer from Alzheimers… in the same sentence… sounds like you’re the one with the old timers issue, which would also make sense as to why your hearing is going too.

    [Reply]

  58. Fella

    @Marsha , yeah its a point of view ! maybe “ladie” think J.LO is celine dion . but j.lo is not celine dion , jlo is jlo . I don’t like celine dion too .

    Jennifer do her thing , she’s not the best voice of the world , but she can sing , can dance , can act , can made joke , made commercial , made clothes , made fragrande , made restaurant….

    Anyway @ladie , for me she sing a lot better @ the rehearsal , but live are very good too .

    It’s just diverstissement people , STOP THE WAR .

    [Reply]

  59. Catie

    Honestly, people can say whatever about Jennifer but to me, the girl can do it all. I think she killed both of her performances and she really did prove she can sing. I’m not saying that she’s in the same range as someone like Mariah or Celine but she can definitely hold her own. I really am looking forward to that new album.

    [Reply]

  60. Marsha

    Bwaahahahahahahahaaaaa as i am getting crazy – LOLs me sooo haaaappy!
    You said that ‘we suffer tone-deaf’ – yes and thats why that stroke struck you!!

    Yes Fella and Catie, what i was telling her or so is that she cant insinuate that j.lo has a horrible voice, because if she wants horrible voice, then i can show her what horrible means!
    She might not have the best voice as others but honestly thats not ‘horrible!
    Well if horrible for you, she sold millions with it!

  61. yamaha

    J.LO had 2.5 vocal range , she can do 3 . She do a lot of live since a long time , especially in Como Ama Una Mujer album , she was pre-nominated @ grammy awards . she win american music awards , billboard awards and lo nuestro awards ;) So haters can talk , but profesional on music are better than many else .
