9. “@jlo killed last night #AMA #Tribute to the great #CeliaCruz”
10. Others, not so much.
JLo was no “azucar”, her tribute to Celia Cruz was more like simple syrup. She doesn’t have an ounce of Celia’s greatness.
Jennifer Lopez’s performance is perfect; I always liked Celia Cruz, but didn’t think she sounded enough like she grew up in the Bronx. #AMAS
By the way..#celiacruz must be rolling in her grave.. JLO i love u to death.. pero la voz te quedo muy chiquita!

Jennifer Lopez get outa here. You making Celia Cruz turn in her grave. Smh
Whoever thought it was a good idea of JLo to “sing” Celia Cruz songs should be taken out back and beaten with a rubber hose.
Oh dear lord. I couldn’t even finish watching the Celia Cruz tribute by JLo wtf was that. She’s a horrible choice.
17. A popular sentiment was that Lopez did a fine job, but it was a reminder that there was only one Celia Cruz.
In the end, Jlo’s performance just made me miss our querida Celia Cruz.
20. Like most contested pop culture debates, we’ll have to let Justin Timberlake decide this one.
