Twitter Was Not Having Jennifer Lopez’s Motown Tribute

Lopez shared that the show's producers, in addition to Motown founder Berry Gordy, were "thrilled" that she was involved in the tribute.

But criticism aside, J. Lo had a very meaningful motivation behind her performance: her Motown super-fan mom, Guadalupe.

Robinson defended Lopez from those slamming the Grammy's decision to tap her as the lead for the tribute, telling Variety that "anyone who is upset is stupid".

Lopez performed "Please Mr. Postman" while wearing a black ensemble with white feathers and accompanied by a group of dancers.

Taylor Swift Skipped the 2019 Grammys. Here's Why
The 27-year-old actor did, however, chat with ET about whether he'd ever work with his famous girlfriend. FYI: Taylor is wearing Stella McCartney .

"I don't think anyone who is intelligent is upset", 78-year-old Robinson said at Clive Davis's annual pre-Grammy party, noting Lopez's upbringing in "her Hispanic neighborhood" in Bronx, New York, made her more than capable of knowing, understanding and performing Motown hits. "How do you do a Motown tribute without an ALL BLACK cast of artists?!" The tribute takes place Tuesday at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Some argued that the Recording Academy could have chosen an artist with a closer connection to Motown for the tribute, such as Diana Ross (who performed separately at the ceremony).

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. "Singing up there with Smokey Robinson, like, I gotta pinch myself. You gotta do what's in your heart", Lopez shared in her defense.

"I want to dedicate the performance to my mom; it's the music we listened to in our living room - The Temptations The Supremes - this is her music and I grew up on it", she said.
