Jennifer Lopez turned the Motown tribute into the J-Lo show.

The Latin singer-actress hit the Grammys stage on Sunday inserting her energetic dance-pop flavor into memorable Motown melodies such as “Dancing Machine” and “Dancing in the Street.”

She faced backlash on social media for her lead participation in a tribute recognizing an historic African-American record label.

Some online questioned why a black artist wasn’t chosen instead of Lopez, but she did received support from Smokey Robinson, who joined her in a duet to perform “My Girl,” a song he co-wrote.

She then briefly teamed up with Alicia Keys on “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone” and sang “Another Star” with Ne-Yo, who played the piano.
