Sunday’s Grammys left most of us feeling — underwhelmed. Dubbed the biggest night in music, the 61st showing of the iconic award show starred everyone from Janelle Monae to Cardi B. But it was Jennifer Lopez‘s controversial Motown tribute that had people holding their breath. Could she do it? Black Twitter certainly did think so. But there’s was one person who did — Smokey Robinson. Before the show, the 78-year-old defended the eye-brow raising decision, “I don’t think anyone who is intelligent is upset. I think anyone who is upset is stupid.”
Welp. Thanks Smokey. So how’d she do? You tell us.
Thoughts? After her performance she responded to critics, saying, “Any type of music can inspire any type of artist. You can’t tell people what to love. You can’t tell people what they can and can’t do — what they should sing or not sing.” Watch below.
TELL US: Did J Lo the performance?
