jenny is the best!

That performance was all about JLO. They had her name plastered on the screens instead of photos of the great Celia Cruz. Jlo was already a bad choice but the American choice because they know her. I bet the Latin music awards will have another tribute to Celia and do it right with true musicians who will keep it about Mrs. Cruz, as she deserves.

Best show of the year 2013, Jennifer Lopez did an amazing job. Now I respect Jennifer Lopez as a singer, she killed it, it was awesome. Congratulation Jennifer Lopez your steal the night. Best of the best.

in what world did this steal the night?

She looks great…I honestly think she’s awesome when she sticks to spanish music. More Spanish, less english music.

@tulino:

As a singer? Seriously? A back up dancer maybe.

Not really a JLo fan, but I think this is one of her best performances. First of all, she sang live, and second, even with her dancing, her voice wasn’t “shaky.” By the way, I agree with post #3, almost no Celia Cruz’ pictures, even though it was her tribute.

:)

great performance.

@Amy:

Yes, I respect Jennifer Lopez as a singer, she did an excellent job, and when I saw her in her world tour, she sould great live singing and dancing a the same time. Everybody has its opion, and this is mine, Jennifer Lopez is one of the best singer of our generation, and the best performance.

I thought it was a great performance.. Celia Cruz was Afro-Cuban. This performance would’ve been more fitting at the Grammy’s/ Latin Grammy’s not, the American Music Awards. It was more about JLO, not Celia

@Loser Gaga
Taylor didn’t perform and Rihanna did a great job last year at the Grammy’s for the Bob Marley Tribute.

wow…jlo really killed it and owned that stage….nicely done.

This was about JLO and not about Celia whose voice was powerful and passionate.

Great performance, very entertaining. She is sooo much better than the stiff Beyonce as a dancer.

Sexy latina chick)) I wish 1 day I have a chance 2 see her live!

She Stinks! @ 11/25/2013 at 7:52 am

What an insult to the Celia Cruz legacy. These vocals were pre-recorded, JHO never sounded like this, live. Notice how the microphone covers her mouth? She’s so sloppy and out of breath, you really think she could keep up with the vocals? Please. I hope some of the back up dancers get hazard pay for have to hoist up such an oversized load. This is a tacky disgrace.

@NO:

As someone who got the opportunity to see the REAL Celia Cruz in person, I can honestly say that JLo was just damn AWFUL! Celia had a voice that could rock the entire house without a mic. Celia must have been turning over in her grave listening to that crap! This wasn’t a tribute to Celia, but another opportunity for someone who can’t sing, dance or act to show the world she truly can’t sing, dance or act! Awful performance.

@Agree w/ No:

AMEN!! AMEN!!!!!

I LOVE YOU JENNIFER! Don’t pay attention to the haters, because they’re nothing and you are THE ONE AND ONLY
