Robinson agreed with Lopez and stood by Grammy organisers who selected the Latina star to perform, calling the backlash "stupid".
Last night's Grammy Awards broadcast featured memorable performances from the likes of Janelle Monáe, Dolly Parton, Diana Ross, Cardi B, Dua Lipa, and many more. When Ne-Yo came out to contribute a rendition of Stevie Wonder's "Another Star", the spirit of multiple black artists singing Motown hits nearly felt like a tribute -except with Lopez perched atop the white grand piano Ne-Yo was playing and diva-worthy fireworks exploding for the finale.
Though Robinson noted that Lopez has credibility "growing up in her Hispanic neighborhood", he said debating whether or not she's even qualified to sing Motownmusic is missing the point of Motown music. Thanks to Berry Gordy, "Motown became a model of black capitalism, pride, and self-expression and a repository for some of the greatest talent ever assembled at one company..." Motown was a black-owned record label that put out music by predominantly black artists like the Supremes, the Temptations, Stevie Wonder, and Marvin Gaye. Alongside Smokey Robinson and Ne-Yo, J.Lo performed a medley of hits from the label's heyday at the Staples Center.
