LAS VEGAS (AP) — Jennifer Lopez surprised guests at the 17th annual Latin Grammy Awards Thursday when she performed with and presented an award to her ex-husband Marc Anthony.
She described the father of her 6-year-old twins as “a living legend” as she presented Anthony with the Latin Grammy Awards’ Person of the Year prize.
“He’s not only the person of the year, he’s the person of all time,” Lopez said.
Anthony, who was feted in a separate ceremony Wednesday, dedicated his award to his five children and “to all those people who told me I would never make it.”
The couple performed “Olvidame y Pega la Vuelta” together Thursday. Anthony also sang “I Need to Know.”
The Latin Grammy Awards were presented at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and broadcast live on Univision.
