One of the big stars in attendance at this year's American Music Awards was Jennifer Lopez. She left her fans and the audience in awe of her performance of her new track, "On My Way."


Jennifer Lopez, 52, stars in the new movie, "Marry Me," as Kat Valdez and she brought her character to life at Sunday's 2021 American Music Awards (AMA) at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Lopez performed the soundtrack, "On My Way (Marry Me)" from the romantic film which also stars actors Sarah Silverman and Owen Wilson and singer Maluma.

Lopez held a bedazzled microphone for her stunning performance and wore a beautiful black gown as she sang before a virtual symphony. While audiences were still taking in the spectacle, the musician changed things up.

She walked and disappeared behind a screen before coming back out wearing a pinkish wedding dress with a matching veil as the movie's trailer played in the background.

According to People magazine, Lopez's performance was pre-recorded. The artist released her new song alongside the realease of the film's trailer last Thursday, although she first performed the track in September 2021.

She performed it at the Global Citizen Live event where she explained that the track was "about pushing through old mistakes and finding your destiny."


"Marry Me" is set to be released in theaters on February 14, 2021. In the film, Lopez features as a Latin pop star who discovers that her on-stage partner, played by Maluma, has been having an affair behind her back.

An E! News source revealed that the pair [Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck] had started thinking about their future.

On the day of their live-streamed wedding, Lopez's character chooses to marry a random stranger, math teacher Charlie Gilbert (played by Wilson), who accidentally holds up a "Marry Me" sign from the audience.


Speaking about marriage, the "Jenny From the Block" vocalist discussed her personal life last week during her visit to the "Today" show on Thursday.

While opening up about her new film, she discussed whether or not she'd consider tying the knot again. She confessed she would, adding:

"You know me, I'm a romantic. I always have been."


Lopez explained that though she'd been married several times, she still believed in "happily ever after." She and her former fiancé, Ben Affleck, rekindled their relationship earlier in the year after she broke up with Alex Rodriguez.

An E! News source revealed that the pair had started thinking about their future. The insider said Affleck and Lopez were in love, and spending time apart in different cities made them miss each other and fall more in love.
