After taking a nasty spill at the American Music awards last month, our girl Jennifer Lopez will get a do-over on So You Think You Can Dance. Although La Lopez fell during her performance on the award show, she got right back up, showing us all how to handle life's unexpected circumstances.

But we're sure she's going to relish the opportunity to take another crack at performing her new single, "Louboutins." Lopez will be teaming up with Tabitha and Napoleon Dumo for a holiday-style rendition of the ditty and apparently, there won't be any death-defying leaps this time around. “We’re steering clear of some big jumps,” Tabitha says. “I feel like we don’t have to be dangerous anymore … Though I appreciated seeing guys with their shirts off personally—no sweaty backs, no shirtless guys. We’re going to have some classy looking guys.”

Napoleon also chimed in on how they are going to give the song a holiday spin for the So You Think You Can Dance finale, airing this Wednesday, Dec. 16, at 8PM EST, "The idea is kind of a cross between a Marilyn Monroe, ‘Santa Baby’ and a ‘Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend,’ but using shoes. Shoes are a girl’s best friend nowadays instead of diamonds.”

Ever the trailblazer, Lopez has reportedly agreed to feature some of the dancers who have competed on the show in season's past to join her entourage for the special treat, “We’re going to incorporate some girls in the performance ..." confirms Tabitha. "I don’t think any other artists that have performed on this show have actually incorporated contestants from the show. It’s not just a performance … it’s a connection to the show.”
