According to Entertainment Weekly, Jennifer Lopez will make a “special virtual appearance” this season. Lopez doesn’t appear in the new teaser for Season 14, but she is mentioned. At one point, judge Ross Mathews tells a contestant, “Even J.Lo is looking at you like, ‘Damn!'”
As EW points out, Lopez has been a longtime presence on the show in spirit, as her fashion and music have been referenced multiple times throughout the series. Examples include the six-way lip sync to “Waiting for Tonight” in Season 11, as well as Jan and Ginger Minj recreating her famous Versace gown on All Stars 6.
