Jennifer Lopez falls while performing at the AMAs

Fall starts around 2:55
Jennifer Lopez performed one of her new, annoyingly repetitive electro-pop excuses for music at the AMAs last night. The song, called “Louboutins,” was inexplicably performed on a faux boxing set complete with a ring and male dancers dressed up to look like boxers. I looked up the lyrics to this song and it uses overpriced shoes as a metaphor for leaving a bad relationship. There’s no mention of sports or boxing.

During her AMAs performance J.Lo fell flat on her ass while attempting to jump over some dancers, but she got up afterwards and quickly resumed her routine. Many people commenting on YouTube point out that she’s lipsyncing and still couldn’t pull off the dance moves. It was pretty ambitious of her to try and land that jump, but ultimately it didn’t work out for her. She was wearing flat shoes and not heels as you would expect from the title of the song. I think I speak for most of us when I point and say “ha ha!”

Lopez’s fall was edited out of the West Coast broadcast of the AMAs. Radar Online has the video of the performance that was aired Pacific time. The jump is slowed down and cuts to Lopez on her feet to give the impression that she landed smoothly.

Adam Lambert also supposedly fell during his performance of “For Your Entertainment.” He seems to fall and roll over in the clip below, but if PopSugar didn’t point out that this was a mistake I would have assumed the roll was part of the act. You can kind of tell that he messed up because he has to stop singing for a moment while the backup track takes over. Now that’s entertaining.

    I couldn’t of put that better myself! :-)

  2. Firestarter says:

    That is the dumbest song ever, aside from her other one.

    Her outfit was stupid too. Looked like a giant lace diaper, and not boxers!

    She is so over. Why not just fade off and take care of the babies.

  3. dude says:

    I thought I saw her bite the dust…but i was like no maybe that was planned. She got up so quickly & continued on I would it was a part of the routine. Its a good thing that she has that big booty to fall on…no wonder she bounced back up!

  4. Jillian says:

    How pathetic. JLo still desperately trying to remain relevant.

  5. QB says:

    HAHAHAHAH , thats some funny stuff.

    I KNEW IT!!!!

    HAHAHAHA when I was watching this my boyfriend thought it was part of the act because of the whole boxer theme get knocked down but get back up again motto but noooooooooo j.lo fell right on her ass!!!

    she needs to give it up

  8. fizXgirl314 says:

    damn, that bitch bounched back up like a cat disposing of one of her nine lives…
    that’s the power of knowing your career is on the verge of being over coarsing through her veins… it’s more intoxicating than a mother seeing her baby in danger… girl sprung back to life in less than a second… WOW…

  9. Praise St. Angie! says:

    good lord, her “music” is such CRAP.

  10. waldemar says:

    Boxing Theme Jello? Really? That has been done already you know. By Madonna. Last year.

    Give it up.

  11. Kevin says:

    She and Madonna should get together to have group therapy for has beens. I can hear Marc Skeletor back at the house yelling, “Punta I tol chu, chu chould stay at home and take care of the bambinos,,,but noooo. Betchu leesen to me nex time.”

  12. Taya says:

    Man her music sucks. I can just hear her screaming at the dancers that it was their fault that she fell on her over exposed ass and not because she is a bad performer. By the way, JLO is wearing those “overnight child pull-ups” to cover up her fat ass and thighs. Are those spanx she is wearing or ugly white tights that 6 year olds wear?

  13. Miss Wanderlust says:

    Maybe it is a good thing she fell down ?
    There is no such thing as bad publicity right ? Everybody is talking about it, so she should be glad her name is still out there….it’s not like she came back with something spectacular. The whole boxing theme is so Madonna Hard Candy 2008 ???? Copycat JLO should have come up with something more original, nice try but she has to compete with the Lady Gaga’s & Rihanna’s now….good luck with that !!!!

  14. bros says:

    I have a hard time watching this pathetic excuse for a singer trying to revive her career doing the exact same crappy songs and dance when she has two babies at home. its just pathetic at this point, trying to pretend she isnt almost 41 prancing around like she thinks she’s rihanna. go take care of your babies for gods sake!

  15. DoMaJoReMc says:

    @ Kevin:


  16. DoMaJoReMc says:

    And did I mention FRICKIN’ HILARIOUS!!!?

  17. Stephie says:

    I think I speak for most of us when I point and say “ha ha!”

    –Ya got that right! She was even holding on to one of the dancers’ hands the whole time. She should’ve landed that. She recovered well, I’ll give her that but still. Maybe the fall was her punishment for making us watch her lip sync the song. :)

  18. Sarah says:

    JLO’s big musical comeback, yeah right and she’s still lip-syncing!

  19. Alarmjaguar says:

    Look, J-Lo’s annoying and all, but what’s with the you’re a mother you can’t have a job other than being home with your babies vibe? That doesn’t seem fair to me.

  20. Firestarter says:

    Hey, I have no problem with working moms, I have a problem with JLo working because I think she sucks. I would much rather her stay at home than sing.

  21. Alarmjaguar says:

    Well, Firestarter, I can certainly agree with that.

  22. wow says:

    The West Coast always gets screwed!

    I shouldn’t admit this, but was I the only one thinking “I wonder which one of those back up dancers she will divorce Marc to be with?”

    I was? Okay, then never mind. :-)

  23. yadira says:

    I loved it so much I had to play it twice!

    She fell on her big ass and just bounced right back up, I guess it helped her to have such a trampoline for an ass for this situation?

    Her music sucks, her attitude sucks, her hair sucks! Stick a big fork in her, bitch is done!

  24. yadira says:

    BTW, WOW, I was thinking the same thing. I was looking for the ugliest dancer and wondered which one she would leave skeletor for. She doesn’t seem to have the best of taste

  25. teehee says:

    Her having children at home has nothign to do with anything— Gwen has kids and a host of other female singers are also mothers and neither in any way detract form the other.
    Its the SONG that detracts from JLos chances….
    granted she didnt write it but never in my right mind would I have agreed to sing it or place it on my album–!

  26. justme says:

    The whole thing SUCKED! She couldn’t come out with something better then this crap?! The champ is here…WTF is that….cornyyyyy as h3ll!

  27. snowball says:

    Whoa, JHo’s not looking so hot these days.

    Rumply, old-looking grandma tights? Check.

    Big grandma lace bloomers? Check.

    Ugly flat athletic shoes that make your legs looks stumpy and fat? Check.

    Super-tight hair updo that makes you look like a fat pinhead? Check.

    All that’s needed is a hot, steaming mess of a song. Oh wait..

  28. crash2GO2 says:

    Damn that girl can move. I love it. song sucked tho, yeah…

    I don’t feel like laughing at her though.

  29. Schnauzers!!!! says:

    I have never liked JLo’s music. And this song just proves to the world that I was right when I said she has no vocal power, and absolutely no lyrical sense. LOL Walk it out of the music world JLo…

  30. ccoop says:

    WTF is she wearing, bondage rompers?!

  31. MMF says:

    Her music is as bad as her acting.

  32. birdie says:

    What happened to aging with grace?? This is embarrassing. Especially when you realize J.Lo is now a 40 year old mother of two trying to compete in the “pop” music genre with girl’s Miley Cyrus’s age.

  33. skibunny says:

    Pathetic!!!! Her whole performance was just ridiculous!

  34. jdao says:

    The song sucks, but I have to say that girl is a pro – I barely noticed.

  35. H says:

    I thought the same thing about the outfit it made her hips and legs look horrible. plus the song sucks.

  36. Pam says:

    It is time for her to move on to other things. She can act when she puts her mind to it. You have to mature as an entertainer and she seems to be stuck in the past.

  37. Just a Poster says:

    Would it be a mean thing to say, that JLo makes me feel better about my own thighs?

  38. fizXgirl314 says:

    hahaha they all look so serious… must be tough trying so hard to pretend this song doesn’t suck!

  39. la chica says:

    Fat Ass looked like a fool. stupid pointless song. she needs to give it a rest.

  40. For Sooth? says:

    The whole thing was a nightmare we couldn’t wake up from. Did a three year old write this song? And the dance moves were lazy and old.

  41. Jazz says:

    I’m still laughing at Kevin’s comment… :-)

  42. Laffinlam says:

    But did any of us think she was ever really that talented? Just a fabricated performer from the commercial radio/MTV branding dept. She just knew how to tAke advantage a good opportunity. But now it’s time to look for another. Hmmmm…maybe she should take over Paula Abdul’s spot on idol?

  43. filthycute says:

    Is the stage okay?

  44. Bambi says:

    She is a long way from her days as a “fly girl” on In Living Color.

    Anyone have a guess as to who she thinks her target audience is. . . ?

  45. spiceh says:
