The performance opened with a snippet from the movie, which was then replaced with flashes of changing skies as Lopez belted out the inspiring yet upbeat ballad.
Lopez is no stranger to the AMAs stage, as she is not only a three-time winner but has also hosted the show before. The singer’s performance came fresh off the heels of her 18-month Las Vegas residency, “All I Have.”
Second Act follows Lopez’s character, Maya, whose lack of a college degree has left her with unfulfilled career dreams — until her friends create a false identity for her, which lands Maya a prestigious job in New York City.
Peter Segal directed the film, which also stars Vanessa Hudgens, Milo Ventimiglia, and Charlene Yi. Second Act is set to hit theaters Dec. 14.
The 46th annual AMAs are being broadcast on ABC from Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater, with Tracee Ellis Ross as host.
