The Recording Academy has finally announced whose performing during the Motown tribute concert and it isn’t Jennifer Lopez.
HipHollywood told you first that reports that JLo was performing during the “Motown 60: A GRAMMY Celebration” were absolutely false. The Recording Academy told us exclusively that “incorrect information” had been reported regarding the upcoming tribute concert and Lopez was not apart of the lineup.
Now they have officially released who will be singing, and we still have some questions. Per the announcement on the Grammy’s official Twitter account, Cedric The Entertainer and Smokey Robinson will host. Performers will include: Boyz II Men, Chloe X Halle, Ciara, Lamont Dozier, Fantasia, Brian & Eddie Holland, Thelma Houston, Tori Kelly, John Legend, Little Big Town, NE-YO, Pentatonix, Martha Reeves, Diana Ross, Valerie Simpson, Mickey Stevenson,Meghan Trainor, and Stevie Wonder.
Hosted by @CedEntertainer and @SmokeyRobinson, a “@Motown 60: A GRAMMY Celebration” tribute will feature @DianaRoss, @BoyzIIMen, @chloexhalle, @Ciara, Fantasia (@TasiasWord), @torikelly, @johnlegend, @NeYoCompound, @PTXofficial, and more. https://t.co/zGweEARnH4

The special tribute concert is slated to go down on Tuesday, Feb. 12, two days after the Grammys, and will air Apr. 21 on CBS.
We are happy to see the inclusion of past and present Motown artists as well as the inclusion of some dynamic singers. There are a few questionable names, but we’ll let social media handle the confusion.
On Wednesday after it was falsely reported that JLo was taking part in the tribute Twitter had a field day. Many wondered why she was picked considering she is Latina and not black. Others were simply perplexed because of her lackluster singing skills. Their words not ours.
