It was all about Ms. Lopez at the American Music Awards Sunday night.
JLO dethroned Spanish heartthrob Enrique Iglesias when winning the AMA for best “Latin Artist of theYear,” an award which Iglesias had won five years in a row. Ironically the first artist to ever win that award in American Music Award history was his father Julio Iglesias.
Iglesias, who has a steamy new single out with Lopez called “Mouth to Mouth,” gave the diva a big hug and kiss as she came on stage to accept her award.
“I didn’t expect to win,” Lopez said with her voice cracking. “It’s been an amazing year…up and down and just exciting and overwhelming and so many things.”
Lopez then thanked her “family and babies” for inspiring her and making her “a better person.” She also thanked her manager Benny Medina, whom she called her “creative partner” as well as producer RedOne. Then she thanked her Latino fans.
“Mi gente latina!” Lopez yelled with her award high in the air. “Por todo… I love you gracias.”
La Lopez as she is called also proved why she is a fashion icon. The “I’m Into You” singer dazzled in a nude, shear-like train dress highlighting her curves and flawless skin.
This isn’t the first time Lopez takes award ceremonies to enlighten folks on her chic sense of style.
Just last week JLO left jaws hanging when sporting a white, slit-high gown at the Glamour magazine awards, where she was honored as woman of the year.
The international pop star changed multiple times on stage, where she showed off her smooth dancing skills, slim figure and, of course, promoted a Fiat– her new big endorsement deal.
