Jennifer Lopez performs on stage at Mawazine Festival, Morocco's biggest music festival.

Lopez has performed in Morocco several times in the past, but this was the first time her concert was nationally televised.

Although a secular country, Morocco's population is majority Muslim and deeply conservative.

Lopez is reportedly also being sued by a Moroccan educational group which alleges her concert "disturbed public order and tarnished women's honour and respect," TMZ reported.
