  1. Now I want to see Beyonce do a Selena tribute they was outraged when she did country awards

    • Durelle Branch as a Latino I wouldnโ€™t care if a black person does a tribute for Selena. As long as itโ€™s reflective of who Selena was. With that being said I didnโ€™t like jlos performance but NOT because of the color of her skin but because she legit made the tribute into a Vegas performance instead of actual Motown.

  2. I would love to see Nicki Minaj do a Hannah Montana tribute now๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  3. DNA my friends. Many Latino(a)s are a mixture of indigenous people, Africans & Spainards. In my Hood these were/are my people too. Don’t let “Da Man’s Hate” rub off on YOU. It’s UGLY. Let him keep it. People of Color should NOT acquiesce to Colonial HATE.

  4. She lip synced the whole way through but hey itโ€™s not like Motown is known the vocals anyway.

  5. Harpo…who dis woman? Y’all can keep taking those checks from whomever is paying you to try and spin this performance as a success. JLo does not have the vocals to match. Let us not dismiss the fact that music back in the day belonged to white people. Black people had to forge their own path…Motown. TMZ…get all of your life…together. Shame on you for trying to parade this around like it’s the greatest performance ever. You don’t get to lie and get away with it. We heard those vocals. No ma’am.

  6. Grammys chose her and she did a great performance. Ppl just want to hate and that’s totally unacceptable. She is the entertainer of our decade
