NEW YORK (CBS) "Dancing with the Stars," watch out! J-Lo and Tom Cruise might be on the ballot sheet next season after their Sunday night MTV romp.

Singer-actress Jennifer Lopez and a hairy-chested, bald Tom Cruise burned the floor with "Tropic Thunder" as they danced together in the opener of the 19th annual MTV Movie Awards Sunday night.

The upholstery-bouncing Scientologist got "jiggy with it" as he slipped into media mogul persona Les Grossman and danced it up, pop-star style, with Fly Girl J-Lo over the music to "Get Back" by rapper Ludacris.

Cruise was the obvious scene-stealer with his booty-shaking, stage-jumping antics.

With matching canes, Jennifer Lopez shimmied her way onstage like a proto-Bond girl in a stringy, metallic dress and danced to her pop hit "Get Right" alongside Cruise who kept rhythm - butt-slapping, Michael Jackson spins and all - with great energy and enthusiasm.

Cruise's wife, actress Katie Holmes, watched on nervously as her hubby made a "tycoon" of himself.

Cruise is promoting his upcoming film "Knight and Day," which co-stars Cameron Diaz. He - dressed as himself this time - and Diaz also presented the closing award for Best Film during the show. It went to "The Twilight Saga: New Moon."
