"2020 is almost over. We made it. We made it," she said before getting teary-eyed. "If this year taught us anything, it taught us to be grateful for what we do have -- to cherish every moment. We lost too many. Too many."
Dressed in a long white feathery cape with a sparkly headpiece, Lopez also performed a montage of her hit songs, including "Dance Again" and "Waiting for Tonight," and delivered a dazzling cover of Aerosmith's "Dream On."
"Tonight we’re going to live, we’re going to love and we’re going to dance again," she added, referring to her 2012 song "Dance Again." "And we’re going to keep on dreaming. Twenty years ago, I sang this song, and we never needed it more than tonight."
In addition to Lopez, the New Years Rockin' Eve special also featured performances by Miley Cyrus, Billy Porter, Cyndi Lauper, Nelly and others. Watch J.Lo's performance below.
