It was Jennifer Lopez night during the annual Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas yesterday! The Latin powerhouse first strutted the red carpet in a red Donna Karan dress and opened the award show with her favorite collaborator Pitbull, performing their World Cup song ‘We Are One (Ole Ola)’ for the very first time, with Claudia Leitte. Jenn wore a sparkly golden outfit.
Ricky Martin and Iggy Azalea introduced triple threat JLo. Before she hit the stage an intro video played mentioning her accomplishments and celebs like Britney Spears, Mary J Blige, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Ryan Seacrest, Cameron Diaz and others raving about her. After that Jennifer took the stage herself to perform ‘First Love’ for the very first time. She showed the world what a power house she is on stage and amazed them with amazing live vocals. Right after the performance Jennifer got honored with the Icon Award for all her accomplishments in the industry with her being the first female to receive the award and the 4th artist overall.
Jennifer touched the hearts of many with her emotional speech thanking us, her fans, friends, family, business partners and loved ones.
