Tyler Perry & Pat Houston Defend Jennifer Lopez’s “Motown” Grammy Performance

Jennifer Lopez got a lot of hate for her Motown tribute at the Grammys … but there are a few who disagree with popular sentiment … one of them being Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law.

TMZ ran into Pat Houston Monday morning at LAX and got her take on the criticism J Lo faced before, during and after she honored Motown … in the middle of Black History Month.

J Lo, of course, is of Puerto Rican descent and the Internet’s been teeing off on her and the Grammys — but Pat has a different view, which is … there is NO color when it comes to music.

Many, many Motown fans disagree, saying things like … “Sorry everyone, but I agree. She’s a great performer, but they should have chosen someone else. No doubt Latinos would be upset if they had a black soul singer doing a tribute to Latin music.”

As you know … J Lo hit the stage with Motown legend Smokey Robinson and Ne-Yo. Houston’s not the only one supporting her — Tyler Perry admits he was skeptical, but adds J Lo won him over.

J Lo has said Motown producer Berry Gordy was thrilled she was involved in the tribute. Count Pat in that category too … based on her rating for the night’s most talked about performance.
