Jennifer Lopez hit the stage at this year’s Grammys for a Motown tribute performance.
One of the songs Lopez sang was “Square Biz” by the late singer Teena Marie. At another point in the set, she joined Smokey Robinson and Ne-Yo to pay tribute to the legendary label.
She also performed “Dancing in the Street” and “Please Mr. Postman,” with Robinson, who introduced the performance and ran through parts of “I’ve Got Sunshine” and “My Girl.”
JLo powered through choreography and a bevy of classic hits. Though, after the announcement that the entertainer would be helming the tribute for Motown’s 60th anniversary, many were confused.
Check out some Twitter users’ reactions to the set.

They really got JLo lip syncing Motown’s finest songs like there’s not 1000 black women with R&B vocals ready for this moment #GRAMMMYs
