It was a star-studded evening at  the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino where superstar Jennifer Lopez kicked off her brand new show for her Strip residency.
It was the red carpet crowd you'd expect at a JLo grand opening: A-list celebrities lighting up the Strip before the spotlight turned on the queen of pop.
Action News talked to her songwriter and producer who told us it's the "JLo-touch" that makes his work shine.
"When I hear 'Waiting for Tonight',  I know the story behind the song. I remember playing for her the demo version and she hated it, she was like get this cheesy thing outta here," chuckled Cory Rooney. "Then we worked on it together and it became what it is."
Of course, Las Vegas staple Holly Madison came out to show her support. "I'm really excited, I've heard this show is the best show in Vegas," she said.
But it was Lopez's on-again off-again flame, former backup dancer Casper Smart, who gave us the inside scoop on what was happening behind the curtain. "She's excited, she's definitely excited. It's been months of rehearsal, planning, and pre-production before that, so she's worked hard, she's ready."
"All I Have" is featured at the AXIS Theater at Planet Hollywood.
