2015 AMAs Jennifer Lopez Opening Performance
Jennifer Lopez was the host of the 2015 American Music Awards and she opened up the show with a big performance. First, she began to sing a slow version of her song “Waiting For Tonight.” She then kicked things up a notch with a few dozen dancers. They all did a huge opening dance number to a medley of songs including “Anaconda” by Nicki Minaj. JLo wore a decked out full body suit and surrounded herself by dancers in tribal outfits.
Because this night wasn’t about J.Lo. It was about all the artists who have helped make this a memorable year in music. And with that, Jenny From The Block began a dance tribute that was accompanied by a medley of hits from the last year.
The songs included “Uptown Funk,” “Anaconda,” “Feeling Myself,” “I Can’t Feel My Face,” “Girl Crush, “Bad Blood” “Trap Queen,” “Hotline Bling,” “Thinking Out Loud,” and “Where Are U Now.” Lopez closed with Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money.” At the end, an explosion of cash rained down on stage.
After a commercial break, Lopez returned to the stage for a formal introduction. She reflected on watching the AMAs as a “kid in the Bronx,” and specifically recalled watching Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Madonna, and Janet Jackson. “This show truly inspired me,” she said.
