Some especially took issue with the Recording Academy, which is responsible for producing the show, not using the many Black women vocalists in the industry to headline the tribute.
Lopez performed "Please Mr. Postman" while wearing a black ensemble with white feathers and accompanied by a group of dancers. "Any type of music can inspire any type of artist", the Bronx-born singer told ET. "Any type of music can inspire any type of artist", she told the publication.
