During the night in Los Angeles Grammy Les on Monday, eight minutes were set to tribute to Motown. The main character of the song was Jennifer Lopez (49), along with artists Motown Smokey Robinson and New York.
Motown Records was the driving force of African-American pop music in the 1960s. The company has great significance for the career of Michael Jackson, Diana Ross and Stevie Wonder.
Now the number of music gets Twitter to cook for various reasons.
Some of them responded that Jennifer Lopez was dancing salsa during the show, which did not stem from African culture. Lopez, who has Puerto Rican roots, is known as a very good dancer, but now the audience responds to the wrong dance for the music genre.
"Hey, Grandma, what the hell was this song just about Jie Lo (Jennifer Lopez) and her dance, not Motown." Ne-Yo, who is actually an artist in Motown, Is allowed to shine at all, "YouTube's bilingual photographer and Natalen Nadeen writes on Twitter.
#GRAMMYs Hello … hey … what the hell is this?!? It was all about him, and that show was about her dancing. It was not about Motown at all.
Neyo as a Motown artist did not even get his shine in fair time!

He also writes that it all looks like a tribute to Jennifer Lopez's ass.
Not an African American
Some also respond to Jennifer Lopez not being African-American. February is known worldwide for being "the month of black history," which many comment on Twitter. In the United States, they spend the month celebrating African American women and men who have fought for equal rights both in the United States and in the rest of the world.
Therefore, some believe that it is not true that Lopez should be the artist who made the number.
Richard Sawyer Jr., a young priest, writer and musician, made a list of other artists who thought they should pay homage to the prestigious award ceremony.
People who can make the gesture to Motown:
Gladys Knight –
Patty to grief
Jennifer Hudson –
Or almost everyone else #GRAMMYs

Motown legend Smokey Robinson, who appeared with Jennifer Lopez, protects the artist.
– I think there are no intelligent people angry. I mean everyone who is angry is stupid, he says Variety.
a dream come true
Lopez says Entertainment Tonight That the show was a tribute to her mother, and that for her was a dream come true.
My mother was a young mother. When I was little, we would dance in Smoky Robinson's living room. I grew up with these songs because my mother loved them, she says.

When asked about the review of the show, Lopez says that any music can inspire any artist.
– You can not tell people what to love. You can not tell people what they can and can not do, or what to sing and not. Grammy's producers knew how much music in Motown inspired me.
She says she realizes that maybe not everyone knew how important Motion was to her career and that it was all right.
"I'm just so humble and grateful for that," Lopez told the magazine after the show.
