J.Lo’s Upcoming Motown Tribute At Grammys Garners Mixed Reactions

The 61st annual Grammy Awards are set for February 10 and there are still last-minute performance announcements being made. However, the most recent addition to the performance line-up has many people scratching their heads, as it was reported that Jennifer Lopez will be on board for a Motown tribute.

During this year’s Grammy telecast, there will be a special tribute commemorating the 60th anniversary of the iconic record label Motown, known for producing some of the most legendary musical acts in history, such as Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson and The Temptations just to name a few.


Given the immeasurable contribution from the Detroit-based record label in the world of music, a tribute at the Grammy’s is well-deserved—but some feel that Jennifer Lopez is probably not the best person to be a part of it.

According to reports, Lopez has been tapped to be a performer during the Motown tribute and many music fans are puzzled to say the least.

Diana Ross

Diana Ross, a fixture of Motown and one of its most prolific artists, will be given a special award at the Grammy’s this year, as well as performing. Some suggest that it would seem more appropriate to have her be a part of the tribute. Nevertheless, Lopez is somehow who show producers decided on.

Meanwhile, an all-star special commemorating Motown’s diamond anniversary, “Motown 60: A Grammy Celebration,” will take place at L.A.’s Microsoft Theater on Feb. 12 and air April 21 on CBS. Performers have yet to be announced.

BELOW are some reactions on Twitter regarding Lopez’s involvement in the Motown tribute:
