Jennifer Lopez Proves Legend Status With Her 2018 VMAs Performance

Jennifer Lopez took to the MTV VMAs stage to deliver a jaw-dropping high-octane performance of some of her biggest hits — including “I’m Real” and “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” — before she accepted the Video Vanguard award for her extensive and iconic videography.

Lopez’s dancing skills and singing talent made her the fodder of hundreds of tweets praising her dancing, singing, looks, and longevity.

Lopez’s performance included appearances by collaborators DJ Khaled and Ja Rule. As mentioned during the broadcast, Lopez is the first Latinx artist to receive the honor. Long live Lopez!
