After pissing off more than a few people (which included the Human Rights Foundation) by serenading Turkmenistanian Dictator Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow last month, J-Lo has cancelled her planned performance for Good Morning America's Summer Concert Series. Instead, sultry R&B singer Jason Derulo will be taking her place this Friday from 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM. Derulo is a hot new artist who got his start writing and producing for Birdman, Lil Wayne, and Diddy. After setting out on his own solo career in 2010, he's been slowly climbing up the Billboard charts and is prepping to release his third album in September. This performance, and all other performances that are part of Good Morning America's Summer Concert Series, are free and will take place at Rumsey Playfield in New York City's Central Park.
