Singer Jennifer Lopez practiced a bit of "capoeira" - a type of Brazilian martial arts dancing with African roots - Thursday on the Montevideo beach along with a group of dancers who are participating in her television talent search program "Q'Viva! The Chosen."
The artist, who sported sunglasses and wore her hair up, jeans and a red sleeveless t-shirt, took her shoes off as soon as she got out of her van to watch the dancers perform.
Later, after directing a few words to a television camera, she approached the group and tried her luck at doing a bit of capoeira herself.
Dozens of curious onlookers and photographers followed the action from a short distance away, kept back by the security cordon set up by the singer's team.
Lopez is on a tour through the region seeking new talent - singers, dancers, musicians and artists - with an eye toward putting them on "¡Q'Viva! The Chosen."
JLo is producing the program with her ex-husband, salsa star Marc Anthony.
