Jennifer Lopez turns heads with Motown tribute at 2019 Grammys following backlash

After taking the Grammys stage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles Sunday night to honor the stars of Motown, Jennifer Lopez stepped up to the mic to rebut critics offended by the performance.

The 78-year-old Robinson ("Tears of a Clown") defended Lopez earlier, saying Motown songs were for any fan.

Her performance comes days ahead of Motown's tribute concert to celebrate the label's 60th anniversary.

Robinson made the comment to Variety's Marc Malkin outside Clive Davis' pre-Grammy gala on Saturday. "A little bit! Like, you don't even have to come out here, you have the baby, how's the baby?'" she said. They were then joined by host Alicia Keys who helped her sing "Papa Was A Rolling Stone".

Lopez and her boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez, recently completed an epic 10-day no carb, no sugar diet, and it turns out she tried the intense regimen for a reason.

But bad news for fans outside the USA as she will sadly only be performing in the US. "@RecordingAcad y'all couldn't find BLACK women to do this MOTOWN tribute?!"

"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.

When the Grammys announced that tonight's show would include a tribute to the music of Motown, it was fitting. She sang classics like "Do You Love Me" while donning several outfits in an act with Smokey Robinson and others.

She added that Motown producer Berry Gordy and producers of the 61st annual show, were "thrilled" about her involvement. Scandalous, right? During her segment on the show, Jennifer also talked about her upcoming 50th birthday and opened up about her Instagram-famous workout challenge where she completely cut off carbs and sugar.

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.
