George Lopez, who celebrates his 49th birthday on Friday, got an early present thanks to superstar Jennifer Lopez who sang him “Happy Birthday” on his show Thursday. Lopez even channeled Marilyn Monroe’s birthday serenade to President John F. Kennedy, vamping it up in a clinging sparkly dress and platinum wig.
“Calm down, birthday boy,” Jennifer told George. “Take a seat and let me do my thing.”
The show then turned into a black-and-white screen as Lopez belted out a slow, impressive rendition of the birthday classic for the talk show host.
After the song, she motioned for a gigantic cake covered in sparklers to be wheeled out as George joined her on the stage while confetti poured down on them.
Lopez Tonight airs on TBS weeknights at 11/10c. the show will move to midnight when new TBS hire Conan O’Brien takes over the 11 p.m. slot this November.
