Do you remember Jennifer Lopez’s 2015 American Music Awards dance medley? Of course you do. Seared into the retinas of millions of wide-eyed viewers, the then-46-year-old Lopez – who was hosting the show that year – choreographed a spectacle to a mash-up of 2015’s biggest pop hits; Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood”, Drake’s “Hotline Bling”, Beyoncé’s “7/11”.
Tonight at the 2021 American Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Lopez took to the stage to sing her track “On My Way”, a song from her new film Marry Me with Owen Wilson. It was a performance that couldn’t be more different from her dance medley on the same stage just six years prior. In a virginal, Madonna’s-esque corset, tulle midi and fascinator, Lopez, 52, swanned about the space, the song showcasing her impressive vocal range.
Fans of course watched this performance with a hopeful lens: Is Lopez on her way to the alter with former-fiancé-come-current-boyfriend-again Ben Affleck? Time will tell.

Watch Lopez’s AMAs performance here:
Marry Me sees Lopez play a Latin pop superstar named Kat who is set to marry her rockstar fiancé (played by Maluma) at a live broadcast television event at Madison Square Garden. But minutes before the ceremony, news breaks that her fiancé has been cheating on her with her assistant. Panicked, Kat picks a random man in the crowd to marry. That man is Charlie (played by Wilson), and they fall in love.
Coming off his Wes Anderson’s anthology film The French Dispatch, it will be good to see Wilson return to his romantic comedy roots (Marley And Me, anyone?), and who better to play opposite than The Wedding Planner herself?
Marry Me will release into Australian cinemas on February 10 and American cinemas on February 11.
