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.

I'm so over the bashing J-Lo...let it go! Obviously she's on top and you hating because she's a BORICUA!!! Don't hate the player hate the game. That's Hollywood for you. #teamjlo

And in matter of fact if she wanted she doesn't need Enrique because she got hits for days and so does Winsin Y Yandell...just them alone can tour. Believe or not!!!

Definitely Enrique! He's known as a global superstar who puts on a real show! He performs LIVE and its all about the music and putting on the best show for the fans! He's sold over 100 million albums, and has multiple Grammy's! J Lo's accomplishments are views on twitter and followers. She also has a big ego! I'm only going for the REAL performer..ENRIQUE!

Tonight    

Last Night & "now" as im watching TMZ you are going on and on and on about Enrique & who is going to Headline the Tour !!

Opening the Concert Wisin & Yandel
2nd -Jennifer Lopez ( she has her kids on tour 2 )
Headliner closes the show - Enrique Iglesias :)

Enrique is a International Superstar who has done a World Tour several times !! He is loved by Woman & Gay men hahaha worldwide :)

JLO say on the tour announcement - she has never did a "World Tour" she wants to learn from Enrique as he has the experience & she has just made music with him called MOUTH 2 MOUTH & Enrique wrote her "newest" song DANCE AGAIN !!

JLO said she wants 2 tour with Enrique because has sold out all concerts in 2011 Worldwide - I know i attended everyone of them Canada ,USA, & Europe !!

JLO maybe a triple threat with her acting ,singing, and hosting !!
But Enrique has the same one movie, videos, song, perfume, award & host award shows even if you dont like him TMZ Enrique has the experience on the road & in all aspects of the business that JLO admitted she doesn't have :)

Jlo is a "welcome" addiction to the tour this year !!
UNLIKE Britany Spears who announced the tour before it was "CONFIRMED" Enrique got bad mouthed by TMZ for backing out of it but it was never confirmed !!

Enrique was on TOUR already since January 2011 ALONE selling out arena everywhere when she asked him 2 join her summer tour !!
But it wasnt possible but she ran her mouth 2 the press and made him look bad :/

Pitbull came on the Tour with Enrique in the "Fall" part of the tour which was planned for a few Canadian & USA show ending the tour in MIAMI :) I know i attended every concert :)

JLO is amazing talent and she isnt "unstable" like Britany was at the time in 2010 when Enrique had booked all his tour dates !! She was a risk that Enrique wasnt willing to take and we are Proud of him for standing his ground !!

Even thou We attended her concert during her tour we are still glad Enrique did it his way !!

After all he was promoting his CD "Euphoria" and PITBULL had done music with Enrique on that CD!!

Britany never did any music with him and to OPEN FOR HER IS POINTLESS WHEN HE WAS PROMOTING HIS OWN CD !!!
Enrique Iglesias isn't a OPENING ACT for anyone he IS A HEADLINER...SELLING OUT EVERY CONCERT ALONE with no opening act till the fall part of the 2011 Tour !! Enrique concert sells out in HOURS not days !!
So if your going to Pick on the man for Promoting his CD & and being VERY experienced in the World Touring and not being and open act to ANYONE

THEN YOU DISAPPOINT ME !! AS MUCH AS WE LOVE YOUR TV SHOW !! hahaha im watching now as im typing this :)
peace n love

For the record, I don't care if Enrique has sold 100 million records, he sucks in concert. Like not good at all. In his last tour Pitbull over shadowed Enrique. Jennifer Lopez despite her electronic, lip synching BS will put on a good show with dancers, effects and PYRO and people will dance. By no means am I a fan of either. Good Luck to both.

ENRIQUE!! He has way more talent. Jlo may be the media queen, but enrique doesnt need to media to keep him afloat and relevant, all he needs is his voice.

Okay the more talented singer is Enrique, I mean he writes, sings, & produces his music!!!!! Explains why I have like 80 songs of him on my iPod! And the tour is really J-Lo's shes trying for a world tour but we all know she isn't talented enough (i mean she cant even get a guy her age) and that is why she needs Enrique, i just wish Enrique would tour by himself again :(

Jlo may be a bigger star in usa. But the real talent is Enrique who is famous worldwide. Idont know why Jlo is treating this tour as her own tour. I can say with guarantee that most audience in the tour will be there for Enrique. and in terms of music ,awards ,albums, tours enrique outshines jlo in all categories. so Enrique is obviously on top.
