NEW YORK (AP) — Jennifer Lopez is in Brazil this week for her show "Q'Viva," but she's never performed in the country. That will soon change when she headlines a music festival there this summer.

The "American Idol" judge announced in a statement Monday that she would be performing at the Pop Music Festival in Sao Paulo on June 23 and in Rio de Janeiro on June 27.

Lopez was in Brazil to promote "Q'Viva," the Latin-focused talent show that she hosts with her ex, Marc Anthony. It airs on Univision and also Fox, which also airs "American Idol."
