The 'On the Floor' hitmaker has been forced to reschedule her 'It's My Party Tour' show at Madison Square Garden after major power outage stopped short her July 13 night gig.

AceShowbiz - Jennifer Lopez has rescheduled her New York City show after a massive blackout forced her to pull the plug on the concert on Saturday night (July 13).

The singer had just started her "It's My Party Tour" stop at Madison Square Garden when the power outage hit, and fans were immediately evacuated from the venue.

Lopez later took to Instagram to share an emotional message explaining her devastation after the show was scrapped.

"The power is out in NYC and at MSG. Heartbroken to say tonight's show is cancelled. We will reschedule. Love you all!!! Stay safe!" she captioned the clip.

"We had just started our show. They're asking everybody to evacuate, very slowly and calmly, and obviously that's what were going to have to do."

She then posted a second message on social media further expressing her disappointment.

"Devastated and heartbroken that I can't perform for all of you tonight. We will make this up to you, I promise! I love you!!" Lopez shared.

Hours later, J.Lo returned to social media with a new date, writing: "ANNOUNCEMENT: Gonna take more than a city-wide blackout to shut us down! Rescheduling the show for Monday night!"

Saturday night's blackout left more than 73,000 New Yorkers without power, according to NBC New York.

Meanwhile, at Friday night's Madison Square Garden gig, Lopez gave World Cup winning-soccer star Carli Lloyd a birthday lap dance.

J.Lo pulled Lloyd from the audience to the stage and sat her on a chair shaped like a stiletto.

Lopez congratulated Lloyd for her team's win and then told the athlete, "I've got a little present for you. Actually Carli, I got two presents for you."

The singer then asked her dancers to "take care of Carli and give her a little birthday present?"

Lopez left the stage and two of her female backup dancers gyrated on Lloyd as Jeremih's 2009 hit "Birthday Sex" played in the background.

The headliner then returned to the stage and sat on the soccer star's lap, moving suggestively as she sang a slowed-down version of "If You Had My Love".

Lloyd turns 37 on Tuesday (July 16).
