Even though we don’t really think about it, Jennifer Lopez has a gang of hits in her catalog. That’s probably why she was recently asked to hold down a residency in Las Vegas and cash in on that gambling money. Only days after that announcement, Ellen DeGeneres had her up on the show to perform a medley of her hits and give fans a little glimpse of what they’d see soon in Sin City.

You knew once she got on that stage, that the pants and jacket were going to come off and surprise! They did. She even shook her a$$ after revealing the skimpy red outfit as she was surrounded by dancers. JLo pretty much ran through her biggest mainstream records, dating all the way back to her first album.

Watch it all go down in the video below…
