J.Lo And Iggy Azalea Perform 'Booty' At The AMAs Amid Controversy

Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea kept up their valiant work of convincing Vogue that booties exist with a performance of "Booty" at the American Music Awards on Sunday night. Wearing leotards, the duo performed their song with slightly less lube and Eos product-placement than we saw in the music video.

"Prepare audience for maximum impact," the screens read, before the lights came up on Lopez, who launched into a booty-centric solo dance routine before Azalea joined her onstage. Lopez had an outfit change -- red and sparkly! -- and shut down an iPhone.

The performance was preceded by concern from ABC executives, who TMZ reported worried about all of the grinding and booty-bumping.

According to TMZ, the network aired the segment on a three-to-four second delay. As Gawker noted, spanking was not explicitly banned.
