Earlier this month, The Recording Academy announced Jennifer Lopez would be heading up the Motown tribute at the Grammys with legend Smokey Robinson and Ne-Yo. Now, considering Jennifer is most known for her dance-y pop records, this was a bit of a surprise to most people, who suggested the likes of Gladys Knight, Beyoncé, or Jennifer Hudson should do it.


The news was so controversial when it was first announced that Smokey himself came out and said, "I think anyone who is upset is stupid" and mentioned how she grew up in the Bronx. Well, people are still upset, and took to Twitter tonight to say they're not mad because of her background, but because of her style of singing.

Honestly, the reactions are so plentiful and pretty hilarious, you'll have a hard time controlling your laughter when reading them. Like, Twitter is FULLY disrespected by and done with the Grammys at the thought of the performance, and it seems unlikely that their opinions will be swayed once the performance actually happens.



One person who will likely approve, though, is perfect Instagram boyfriend Alex Rodriguez, who is probably the biggest J. Lo fanboy who ever walked the planet.
