Jennifer Lopez bagged the number one spot for Forbes Celebrity 100 List for this year. The sexyLatinawas a surprise winner beating Oprah Winfrey who only lands at second place.

It seems like all her hard work in the entertainment business for the recent year has paid off. Contributing to her success also included her clothing line at Kohl’s, her fragrances and various endorsements to date.

Since Lopez signed in to be one of the judges for “American Idol,” it seemed to have brought her luck back. The singer/dancer and mother to twins Max and Emme managed to bounce back and this time, it was huge.

Although JLo isn’t the top earner from the list, despite her total earnings of $52 million from last year, she managed to snag title of “most powerful celebrity.” Her cumulative score in press, social media and web has made her number one.

Oprah Winfrey took the number two spot while Justin Bieber came in third. Click here to see more of Forbes Celebrity 100 List for 2012.
