UPDATE: JLo Slated To Perform During Grammy Motown Tribute … Twitter Has Questions



The Recording Academy has told HipHollywood exclusively that “incorrect information” is being reported regarding Jennifer Lopez performing during the “Motown 60: A GRAMMY Celebration.”


J.Lo is headed to the Grammys, but not to perform a medley of her hits.

Instead it’s being reported that the global superstar will take the stage as part of a tribute to Motown Records, celebrating the label’s 60th anniversary. According to Rap-Up  a commercial promoting the performance aired on CBS on Monday (Feb. 4).

HH could not find said commercial. We also reached out to the Recording Academy for details because like Twitter … we have questions.

But before we delve into those, let us just clarify that we are absolute JLO fans. We love her songs, fashion and business acumen, not to mention she is eternal body goals.

We are just confused as to how a tribute celebrating the first African American record label that has spawned some of the best and most influential singers of all time would be headlined by Jennifer LOPEZ of all people. Twitter had the same concerns.

Did they mean Hudson or …?” questioned one person on Twitter. “Tribute to who, with what voice?” asked another.


Per the Grammy website the Recording Academy will celebrate the iconic and historic label with a special tribute concert, “Motown 60: A GRAMMY Celebration.” The live concert taping will be held Tuesday, Feb. 12 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and will air Apr. 21 on CBS. But no specific performers were announced.

We gather that this is when the actual tribute will occur and NOT during the actual Grammy show. We also hope JLO is simply just performing, as in dancing, and not actually singing.
