Jennifer Lopez Defends Her Controversial Motown Tribute At The Grammys

Jennifer Lopez responded after facing backlash for performing a Motown tribute at the 61st Grammys.

The singer and actress took the stage at Los Angeles' Staples Center on Sunday to pay homage to Motown.

Lopez led the medley (which included "Dancing in the Street," "My Girl," and "Please Mr. Postman") and was joined by Smokey Robinson and Ne-Yo.

Many people were upset that Lopez was part of the tribute and felt that a black artist should've represented Motown.
