The Chainsmokers star Andrew Taggart still cringes with embarrassment every time he recalls dance moves he displayed when Jennifer Lopez recently joined the stars onstage in Las Vegas.
J.Lo and her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez were in the audience at the Closer hitmakers’ Sin City nightclub residency on 1 June (18), when the DJs played the superstar singer/actress’ most recent single, Dinero.
Taggart reveals Jennifer was thrilled to hear her track during the night out, and she invited herself onstage to treat the crowd to an impromptu performance.
“We’ve become friends because she plays her residency in Vegas as well… and we’ve gone to her show, she’s come to ours, and we played her new song Dinero, and she was… giving us the (gesture), like, ‘Can I come up?’ and we were like, ‘Are you kidding me?’,” Taggart recalled on breakfast show Good Morning America.
But the 28-year-old producer was not proud of the footwork he displayed alongside the former dance professional, which was captured on camera and posted online by excited fans.
“Did you see the dance moves I was doing up there…? It was not good, it was not pretty,” he laughed. “It’s the best I got, but sometimes you’re gonna find yourself in situations where you’re dancing next to J.Lo, wondering what’s going on!”
Jennifer and Alex had been at the XS Nightclub with her manager, Benny Medina, and a group of dancers from her Planet Hollywood concert residency to celebrate a crew member’s birthday.
Despite Taggart’s dancing concerns, retired baseball ace Alex enjoyed the impromptu set his girlfriend put on for clubbers.
He was among those who posted a clip of the performance on social media, captioning it, “My girl killing it with the Chainsmokers.”
