But here's the thing: the goal of the tribute was to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Berry Gordy's label, with the man himself, now 89 years old, in attendance (and yes, he gave Lopez thundering applause with the rest of the theater).

Lopez addressed the criticism when she got off stage, as she explained the impact the music of Smokey Robinson had on her when she was growing up in the Bronx.

"The thing about music is that it inspires all. I love you. You are so amazing!'" she shared. They argued the Grammys should've chosen an African American singer.

"I don't think anyone who is intelligent is upset", Robinson told Variety before the event.

'It's just a small amount of shows, but we'll be out all through June and July, I think, ' Jennifer said.

Robinson agreed with Lopez and stood by Grammy organisers who selected the Latina star to perform, calling the backlash "stupid".

The performance was shrouded in controversy as fans far and wide became immediately outraged by the announcement that Lopez would headline the Motown tribute.

"I'm afraid of A-Rod's penis", she says.

When you think of today's artists who were influenced by Motown, Jennifer Lopez probably doesn't come to mind.

When the Grammys announced that tonight's show would include a tribute to the music of Motown, it was fitting. "I'm getting ready for this movie that I'm going to do called Hustlers", she revealed. To know the history of Motown, you understand that Berry Gordy founded the group with the intent to publish and OWN the music Black artists created. She also sported a sparkling bodysuit during "Money (That's What I Want)". Huffington Post editor Phillip Lewis posted, "I'll never understand why they didn't choose someone Black for a MOTOWN tribute".
