  • Jennifer Lopez Grammys 2019

But for anyone who'd been following along online over the last week, the tribute was indisputably controversial; Lopez came under fire after she was announced as the headliner for the tribute a few days earlier.

When queried about why Lopez was the right fit the performance, Robinson said simply Motown's music is universal.

One person suggested the role should be handed to an artist like Beyonce or Kelly Rowland.

For her part Lopez was in tears talking to "Entertainment Tonight" after her performance.

While others supported JLo, but kicked off at the Grammys organisers: 'No shade, J-Lo is truly a great artist, but let's be real, this wasn't her performance to give. Ne-Yo, Grammys host Alicia Keys, and Motown legend Smokey Robinson also performed, but Lopez was clearly the star of the tribute.

She added: 'The thing about music is that it inspires all.

Jennifer Lopez performed a medley of Motown classics at the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday, belting out a number of old favorites like "Dancing in the Street", "Do You Love Me", "The Things in Life are Free" and more. You can't tell people what they can and can't do, what they should sing or not sing. "I grew up on all those songs and because my mum loved them so much she passed them onto us". "It's such a good moment. You gotta do what's in your heart", Lopez shared in her defense.

"I don't think anyone who is intelligent is upset", he told Variety. "I'm just very humbled and honored to be able to have sung those songs".

"Hey man, Motown was music for everybody". According to Us Weekly, viewers watching the awards show from the comfort of their homes were shown a close-up of Rodriguez appearing stunned during Lopez's performance.

Motown fans who were disappointed with Sunday's tribute might be more pleased with the Recording Academy's upcoming celebration of Motown.
