Jennifer Lopez delivers scorching performance at the AMAs

The pop superstar took to the stage alongside Columbian star Maluma.

Jennifer Lopez has delivered a scorching performance alongside Columbian singer Maluma at the American Music Awards.

The pop superstar, 51, wore a sheer black outfit for the songs Pa Ti and Lonely, which will feature on the soundtrack of upcoming rom-com Marry Me.

She kicked off the performance illuminated by a cross-shaped spotlight on her face before it transformed into prison bars to create a scene reminiscent of Jazz Age musical Chicago.

Maluma, one of the biggest stars in Latin music, appeared on stage looking dapper in a pinstripe double-breasted suit before going face-to-face with Lopez.

At one point during the raunchy routine, Lopez lay on a table while Maluma climbed on top of her.

In accordance with the show’s coronavirus safety guidelines, the backing dancers all wore masks.

Lopez showed off her new, shorter hairstyle at the awards and had earlier turned heads after walking the red carpet in a dazzling, silver Balmain dress.

Lopez is no stranger to the AMAs stage, having hosted the show in 2015.
