She sang at Karen's wedding 14 years ago.

Now Jennifer Lopez is set to make her comeback as a guest star on Will & Grace, Vanity Fair has reported.

This time round, the 48-year-old will play two characters: Herself, and her Shades Of Blue persona Detective Harlee Santos.

J-Lo appeared in the season six finale back in 2004, when Karen (Megan Mullally), having run into her in a bathroom, discovered she was an old friend of her maid Rosario.

She then convinced her to sing at her wedding to Lyle Finster — played by John Cleese — at which Jack (Sean Hayes) fills in as a back-up dancer.

During the episode, Lopez poked fun at herself, demanding everyone wear her new Glow fragrance and branded jeans.

She also returned for the season seven premiere, in which she fires her by-then full-time back-up dancer Jack, but gets him a job as a dancer for Janet Jackson.

NBC, which broadcasts both Will & Grace and Shades Of Blue, has not revealed any further details about the upcoming guest slot.

The sitcom, which stars Eric McCormack and Debra Messing as the BFF titular characters, originally ran for eight seasons, from 1998 to 2006.

In September the network rebooted it with the original cast for a ninth season, and following a positive reception renewed it for a tenth.

The original finale, which revealed the futures of the friends, was written off as one of Karen's alcohol induced dreams in the first of the new episodes.

Crime drama Shades Of Blue meanwhile, which co-stars Ray Liotta, will head into its third season this year.
