The 49-year-old performer was later joined on stage by Robinson, 78, who sang "My Girl".

But critics have questioned why a black artist wasn't leading the charge to celebrate 60 years of the Motown record label.

"Any type of music can inspire any type of artist", she said to Entertainment Tonight's Kevin Frazier.

According to USA Today, Lopez told DeGeneres that she and Rodriguez bought a fixer-upper house, and Lopez told Rodriguez how she would love Gaines to help with the project, according to USA Today.

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.

The star also got some fervent support from Robinson, who told Variety ahead of the Grammys, "I don't think anyone who is intelligent is upset". But Ross had her own tribute and Smokey was just fine with Lopez doing the Grammy tribute, even going so far as calling the folks upset with it "stupid".

Manchester United not a laughing stock anymore, says Phil Jones

Despite Robinson's comments, an outpour of folks fired shots at Lopez's performance during the 61st annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, taking offense to just about every aspect of the tribute including Lopez's sparkled-covered costumes.

But bad news for fans outside the United States as she will sadly only be performing in the US.

On January 12, 1959, Berry Gordy redefined music when he founded Motown Records at 2648 West Grand Boulevard, Detroit.

"Grammy failed on the Motown tribute #GRAMMYs". "Hi!' I totally fangirled out", she recalled. She sang classics like "Do You Love Me" while donning several outfits in an act with Smokey Robinson and others. Among those struggles were the Black woman being oversexualized and marginalized.

In honor of her 50th birthday, the global superstar has announced "It's My Party: The Live Celebration" tour, which will travel to 24 cities across North America this summer. If not J Lo, who would you have liked to see take the stage?
