All eyes were on Lady Gaga at the Grammys, but J-Lo snatched the spotlight with her performance which was marred by controversy.

Music’s night of nights put on a stunning spectacle after the world’s biggest superstars took centre stage at the 61st annual Grammys.

The ceremony has wrapped up at the Staples Center in LA and the spotlight was firmly on Lady Gaga, who’s smash hit Shallow won several awards.

But Jennifer Lopez briefly rained on Gaga’s parade, giving one of the best performances of the night in a show-stopping medley that paid tribute to Motown Records’ 60th anniversary.

The Recording Academy announced earlier this month J-Lo would be performing the Motown salute, which met extreme backlash from fans who thought the likes of Gladys Knight, Beyonce or Jennifer Hudson should have been given the honour.

But Lopez proved her critics wrong with her high-energy, vocally flawless Motown celebration.

The Jenny From The Block singer opened with dance classic Dancing In The Street before stripping down to a sparkling one piece, which was just one of her several on-stage outfit changes during the lengthy set.

The 49-year-old was surrounded by dozens of back-up dancers who performed in sync with her during the performance, which also featured vocals from Smokey Robinson and Ne-Yo.
