“Sing me the way you used to sing me,” Lopez added, helping the audience. The crowd, which consisted of 20,000 fully vaccinated frontline heroes, joined and represented “Sweet Jennifer”.

After the “Sweet Jennifer” moment, the crowd at the Sophie Stadium in the Inglewood neighborhood of Los Angeles stood on their feet to listen to Lopez sing the classic version.
