Jennifer Lopez to Host 2015 American Music Awards

A new Latino will be hosting the 2015 American Music Awards this year. Puerto Rican singer, actress and producer Jennifer Lopez has taken the spot as host of the AMA’s after Pitbull’s two-consecutive year run as host.

Lopez is set to host and have a live performance in support of her recently announced Las Vegas show, “All I Have,” set to premiere January 2016 at the AXIS Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. The show promises that fans can expect a “mix of pop, R&B and fan favorites” from Lopez.

In 2013, Pitbull hosted the show for the first time and received a lot of mixed reactions. He used the occasional Spanish word in his speeches and JLo preformed a tribute to the late salsa singer Celia Cruz in Spanish. Both sparked controversy in the Twittersphere. But, even after the backlash, Pitbull returned to host in 2014.
