Jennifer Lopez reprised the role that kicked her career into overdrive and paid tribute to Selena Quintanilla at the Billboard Latin Music Awards, which aired Thursday on Telemundo.
What made the tribute even more special is that she performed alongside Los Dinos, the family band that backed Selena up until she was murdered 20 years ago.
J. Lo took on a series of Selena hits, including “Como La Flor,” “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom,” “Amor Prohibido,” “I Could Fall In Love,” and “No Me Queda Mas.”
“Hands up for Selena and Los Dinos!” Jennifer commanded the audience, which included Gregory Nava, the writer and director of the 1997 Selena movie. “Sing with me!”
It was truly an emotional moment as Selena’s sister Suzette and her brother A.B. joined Jennifer on stage at the end of the performance.
