Jennifer Lopez turns Motown tribute into own zesty show

Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez at grammys 2019

With a medley of huge Motown classics, she put up a dramatic performance in a duet with Smokey Robinson and Alicia Keys.

Robinson, who joined Lopez on stage for portions of the tribute, told Variety prior to the performance that "anyone who is upset is stupid".

In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, she said, "You can't tell people what to love". The 49-year-old singer stopped by the The Ellen Degeneres Show and revealed juicy details of her and Alex's relationship, including their favorite body parts and what they wear to bed.

The 78-year-old icon bluntly said, "I don't think anyone who is intelligent is upset". "Who's stupid enough to protest Jennifer Lopez doing anything for Motown?".

Jennifer Lopez turned the Motown tribute into the J-Lo show.

And while the multi-talented star was on point with her outfit and stage design for the performance, many viewers were left baffled as to why bosses had chosen Jennifer for the tribute. Motown was music for everybody.

But considering the barriers that black artists from the Motown era faced to get recognition, the choice seems especially thoughtless.

"Grammy failed on the Motown tribute #GRAMMYs". "We were The Temptations and we just sing with her and I feel it's a dream come true". "My birthday is in July so this summer I decided I want to do something big for my birthday since it is a big birthday".

"I'm getting ready for this movie I'm going to do call Hustlers and I have to play a stripper", she explains, noting that her trainer challenged her to cut out carbs and sugar.

She added that Motown producer Berry Gordy and producers of the 61st annual show, were "thrilled" about her involvement. Huffington Post editor Phillip Lewis posted, "I'll never understand why they didn't choose someone Black for a MOTOWN tribute". The SOUL? What did you all think of the performance and backlash?

Once you take a look at JLo's health regimen, you can see she shouldn't have any trouble keeping up pace traveling the country.
