Lopez premiered “El Anillo” at the 2018 Billboard Latin Music Awards on April 26, where she delivered a show-stopping performance in a goddess-like headdress and bejeweled bodysuit. She last performed on the Billboard Music Awards in 2014, when she also received the Icon Award.
Along with J.Lo, this year’s star-studded roster of BBMAs performers includes Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes, Kelly Clarkson (who is also hosting the show), John Legend, Dua Lipa, BTS and this year’s Icon Award recipient, Janet Jackson. Christina Aguilera and Demi Lovato also just announced that they’ll team up for a performance of their new collaboration “Fall In Line,” which will mark the world premiere of the song.
