There wasn’t a dry eye in the house after Jennifer Lopez‘s tribute to Selena Quintanilla at last night’s (April 30) Billboard Latin Music Awards.
Lopez, who got her big break playing the Tejano star in the 1997 biopic Selena, honored the late singer with a medley of her hits “Como La Flor,” “Bidi Bidi Bom Bpm,” “Amor Prohibido,” “I Could Fall In Love,” ending with “No Me Queda Mas.”

For the 7-minute tribute, which honored the 20-year anniversary of her tragic death, Lopez performed alongside Selena’s family band, Los Dinos and managed to change three times right onstage without any wardrobe malfunctions. Not to mention show of some of Selena’s signature moves.
“We love you, Selena,” Lopez said with tears in her eyes to end the touching performance as she hugged Selena’s brother and sister. Everyone was of course on their feet cheering.
Selena was shot by a business associate in 1995. She was just 23 years old.
