  • Jennifer Lopez Grammys 2019

Grammy Awards viewers heaped fresh criticism onto Jennifer Lopez for her prominent role in a Motown tribute at Sunday's show.

There was really nothing wrong with her performance, and as Robinson pointed out in his pre-Grammy interview with Variety, Motown was music for everyone, not just for a specific set of listeners. "Any type of music can inspire any type of artist", Lopez told Entertainment Tonight on Sunday, noting she grew up listening to Motown songs with her mom. "The source described her as "a complete diva", very difficult" and "wouldn't allow anyone to tell her what to do".

Icy weather possible for parts of Virginia Sunday night
Bridges in the city were closed Friday as officials planned to determine when they could be reopened, MLive.com reported . Snowfall amounts will range from an inch to 3 inches (2.5 centimeters to 7.6 centimeters) through Sunday night .

Robinson will be hosting the Motown 60: A Grammy Celebration special on April 21 with performances from Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder and John Legend reportedly planned. In addition to Robinson and Ne-Yo, Lopez got a little help from her friend Alicia Keys during the tribute, too. "I was like, 'Wouldn't it be incredible to have her [Joanna Gaines] do it for us?' But, she doesn't do anything outside the show, so I was like, 'No, no'". The artist will be playing fewer than 30 shows across the US, making it all the more special for fans. Though she has been performing regularly in Las Vegas with her "All I Have" residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, this will be her first tour since 2012. So needless to say, J Lo's performance didn't sit well with many who questioned why a Black woman wasn't chosen to perform the tribute. 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. "I think anyone who is upset is stupid", Robinson defiantly declared. Motown was music for everybody. "Everybody... I think anyone who is upset is stupid". When Ne-Yo came out to contribute a rendition of Stevie Wonder's "Another Star", the spirit of multiple black artists singing Motown hits nearly felt like a tribute -except with Lopez perched atop the white grand piano Ne-Yo was playing and diva-worthy fireworks exploding for the finale.

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.
