Lopez originally paid tribute to Quintanilla by playing the famous singer in the biopic Selena and on Apr. 30, we’ll get a repeat of the moment. The news was confirmed on Telemundo Thursday afternoon and again on Twitter.

“It’s an honor, a great honor to be able to, 20 years after her death, to do a tribute for Selena,” J.Lo told Al Rojo Vivo. “She continues to be someone that inspires. It’s something that excites me very much. And I want to do something special, very special – just like she was – in this tribute.”
The famous Mexican singer was murdered by the former president of her fan club, Yolanda Saldivar, in Corpus Christi, Texas. This year is the 20th anniversary of Quintanilla’s death.
