Jennifer Lopez through the years
Before she was ever “Jenny from the Block,” Jennifer Lopez had to take a few gigs that even she’s slightly embarrassed to talk about. While on The Tonight ShowJay Leno decided to take a walk down memory lane, asking her about “big break” in the entertainment business.

“I got a job working as a back-up dancer for New Kids on the Block,” J-Lo said about the 1991 gig. “Dancing on the American Music Awards and it was a big deal… There’s tape out there somewhere, for sure.” 

Well, of course Jay had the clip — much to the surprise of the Get on the Floor singer.

In the clip, Jennifer is spotted jumping and dancing in classic NKOTB style.
