An Emotional Jennifer Lopez in Tears

The emotion of the last year seemed to get too much for Jennifer Lopez as she broke down in tears while performing on stage on Saturday night.

And now, photographs have emerged of the emotional moment the 42-year-old star teared up, after performing a rendition of new song One Love. 

The star has sought to explain why she became emotional in front of the packed auditorium, revealing she reacted to the sympathetic atmosphere in the crowd.

‘You know what it was? I was standing there and I realised that I did bear a little bit of my thoughts in this song and I acted it out kind of for the audience,’ she later told Access Hollywood. 

‘And the way they received it was very touching. I think that they felt what I felt, which was that I’m just a girl like everyone else.’

With her hair pulled back and wearing a sparkling costume, the star seemed quite overcome, holding a hand to her chest and looking out over the crowd. 

‘I’m going to sing you the last song I wrote about love. A lot has changed since then,’ she told the crowd.

‘We wanted to do a section of the show that talked about love,’ she added to Extra of the performance. ’And through it, I go through all the different moments of my life. 

‘At the end of the day it’s a journey. It’s about love, It’s about loving yourself,’ she said. ‘The audience saw me being open so they saw it was a regular person like everybody else. I have feelings like everybody else. ‘My life gets great and gets not so great sometimes,’ she admitted. ‘It is what it is.’

The star also acknowledged she became more emotional when she spotted her mother in the audience, and when she performed song Until It Beats No More.

‘I didn’t see her the whole time until this one moment, and I was a bit emotional,’ she explained adding that ‘The song reminds me of my babies. It always did’. ‘My mom, my family – they are there during the hard times. The babies – I’m strong for them.’

The show also saw a cavalcade of potentially emotional moments for the star when dancers recreated her important relationships while she sang.

At one point a P. Diddy double danced with the female dancer wearing a copy of her infamous slit-down-to-the navel Versace gown, while a ringer for her ex-husband Cris Judd danced with a paired down Lopez-a-like in jeans.

Another doppelganger was wearing the mint green gown she wore to the Oscars with fiancé Ben Affleck as she twirled with a square-jawed replica of The Town star.

But the most dazzling pairing came from the twosome reliving Lopez and Marc Anthony’s American Idol performance from May, only weeks before they announced the end of their marriage.

She might have pleaded with us ‘not to be fooled by the rocks that she’s got’ in a past song but if it weren’t for strategically placed sequins, Lopez would have literally bared all to her audience at one point.

At other points in the show, Lopez donned a white yet equally encrusted blazer and had some fun with a cane.

And it was clear that despite her sadness over lost loves, the American Idol judge is still full of passion for the future. After all, there is that burgeoning romance with a certain Bradley Cooper to consider. The showbiz world is abuzz with rumours about their romance.

However, the singer and actress pledged not to speak about any romances until she is in another serious relationship at her fashion line launch in Connecticut last week.

Lopez said she wants to protect her three-year-old twins Emme and Max in case her relationships do not work out.

She said: ‘As a mom, and having children, right now they’re my first priority.’And because of them, I wouldn’t ever comment on anything until I’m in a serious relationship again.

‘It would just be confusing for them and it would be unfair. And so at the end of the day, it’s about them.’

Jennifer tried to hide her face when she was spotted enjoying some time alone with A-Team hunk Bradley earlier this week.

The pair are believed to have started dating last month, when they were spotted enjoying dinner at Per Se restaurant in New York.

Jennifer and Bradley, 37, had tried to explain the cosy meeting away by insisting it was just a professional meeting.
