Jennifer Lopez‘ decision to tribute the Motown empire at last night’s Grammy awards was met by praise from some and confusion from others.
Now, the hours following the electrifying performance have seen viewers use some social media to celebrate the performance as others point and laugh at it.
Which side of the fence do you fall on?

Black people R Upset! (Logic) The Singer of the #Motown tribute should have had the vocals to Have Been on Motown Back in the Day. I felt it was more of a tribute to @JLo and the Theme was Motown. I’m not mad at JLo, To be on a World Stage representing One of Musics greatest eras

It’s just shameful to see the idiocy and racist b.s. coming out some of my Black Folk regarding @JLo performance at the #Grammys I’m ashamed at some of you idiots. Not only did she rock it, you numbnuts should be grateful she has love for the #Motown Classics. #MotownTribute

Dear #GRAMMYs the women of #Motown were class acts in gowns & beautiful performances. While I like @JLo, this was not the right platform for the tweaking on MJ. #Inapproiptate A Black Women would not have performed the opening Latina song? Wrong choice-M #BlackHistoryMonth

Honestly, @JLo performance at the #GrammyAwards was completely disrespectful to the legacy of Motown, disrespectful to Black people, and OUR culture. Shame on the Grammys for booking her in the first place!

I hope you don’t block me for this but I’ve always felt JLo was a better actress and dancer than a singer. Motown songs need strong, unique vocals, so I just felt it should have been someone with great Motown pipes. Black, white or purple

Jennifer Lopez said nigga in the I’m Real remix ft. Ja Rule (while lipsyncing over Ashanti’s vocals), she’s said “all lives matter”, and she did this Motown “tribute” knowing that she was taking an opportunity away from black artists. Jlo has no respect for black folks. #GRAMMYs pic.twitter.com/LgQYk0SljI
