Guess who will be back on the Billboard Latin Music Awards stage? Jennifer Lopez!

For the first time, Telemundo announced this year's finalists through Facebook Live, and we were excited because the "Olvídame y Pega la Vuelta" singer is set to perform at the Billboard Latin American Music Awards on April 27, broadcasted live on Telemundo. We can't wait to see this year's performance by Lopez since we still haven't gotten over her emotional tribute to Selena Quintanilla at the 2015 BBLMA, which included her rendition of "Amor Prohibido,"  "Como La Flor," "No Me Queda Más" and "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom."
