J.Lo/Enrique Iglesias

Who's On Top?

5/2/2012 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

JenniferNow that Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias have announced their concert tour, the big issue is .... who gets top billing?

Lopez' manager, Benny Medina, tells TMZ, "Neither Jennifer nor Enrique care who opens or closes.  What we want to do is give the fans the best show possible and whatever that means, that's what we will do."

It's a big change from a year ago, when Enrique bailed on the Britney Spears concert tour because she was getting top billing ... and he wasn't having it.

We're told the NEW tour will be a "co-headliner show," with equal production value, money and time spent on both Jennifer and Enrique.

As for who opens and who follows, Medina tells TMZ it hasn't been worked out yet but it won't be a problem.  He also said if the venue has a bunch of screaming girls pining for Enrique, it would make total sense for Jennifer to go first.

An AEG rep involved in the concert tells us the plan is to have the two singers flip flop, with Jennifer going first one night and Enrique going first the next.  

For the record -- the AEG rep also told us Enrique had "no ego" about going last.

Really TMZ? WHo really cares about who is on top, must be a slow news day, can't wait to see what crap you are going to splash on this site about the Trashians for today.

Depends on where the tour dates are. EG is very famous and popular in South America. JLO moreso in the U.S. It was nice of EG to put his best pair of old jeans on while JLo does her usual over the top $8000. dress. Hmmm.

without a doubt JLo is bigger . She is a incredible singer and a great dancer and she is unbelievable on the stage . i love enrique and i know that he is a great singer and performer but there is deference between his voice in the studio and on the stage in every songs that he sings . but JLo sings the songs like in the studio . for example she sang papi in AMA 2011 While she was changing her voice like the studio version . i love both of them but i think JLo is better and it will be the best concert in the history with 2 of the best singers ever.

The public doesn't care who is headliner or performs first. That seems to be an ego problem between the performers and wasted time to stress about. I like Jennifer but have been overdosed with her on American Idol as a judge and performer on their stage and in their commercials.

He bailed b/c he was getting less than BRITNEY SPEARS? She's BEEN getting paid more than him for YEARS, I don't even remember hearing a song of his on the radio in YEARS.

Something is terribly wrong when a lot of women these days have bigger egos than men.
