The Shades of Blue star opened with a surprisingly stunning, slowed-down rendition of “Waiting for Tonight” — yes, Cookie, she can sing! — before dancing along to a medley of some of today’s biggest hits, including Mark Ronson/Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” and Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda.”
For the record, Minaj didn’t seem too thrilled with Lopez’s tribute:
Armed with a stage full of nude body-suited backup dancers, JLo performed her way through more than a dozen (of other people’s) tunes, concluding with an appropriately angry bit of Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money.”
