Until then, Lopez should also be proud of her "Saturday Night Live" appearance last weekend. The "Maid in Manhattan" actress opened the late-night show with a bang on Saturday. 

She wore a classic black tuxedo as she spoke about her very full year, inserting jokes throughout. Then, she broke into a performance, going to the audience to interact with them at one point.

She brings Versace to the stage

When she returned to the stage, the Radio City Rockettes group came on to do a line dance with the star. Towards the end, they got in front of Lopez, who quickly changed into her famous green Versace dress from 2000. 

Lopez has indeed had a big year. She turned 50, got engaged, and released a successful film. Still, there might be a lot more to come from the "Jenny from the Block" singer.
