Jennifer Lopez suffers hair malfunction, rips out her extension mid ‘SNL’ performance

The show must go on.

Jennifer Lopez appeared to suffer an on-air mishap when she was seen yanking a hair extension from her head during a performance on “Saturday Night Live.”

The songstress, 54, was singing her new song “Can’t Get Enough” with Latto and REDMAN, who joined her on stage.

Amid the high-energy choreography, one of her extensions seemingly came loose and she pulled it out on live TV.

In true Lopez fashion, she didn’t miss a beat and continued performing in Studio 8H as if nothing had happened.

“What a performer, shake it off and keep on! 👏👏” one fan wrote on social media.

Another chimed in, “The show must go on. JLO ate up that performance 🔥.”

The “Hustlers” actress cut a cool figure in a cropped white button-down, a cropped black jacket and matching black pants with cutouts.

The Feb. 3 episode was hosted by “The Bear” actress, Ayo Edebiri, who came under fire after a resurfaced clip showed her claiming that Lopez doesn’t know how to sing.

During a 2020 appearance on the “Scam Goddess” podcast, the now-28-year-old joked that the Grammy nominee’s career was “one long scam.”

“She thinks she’s on multiple tracks, but it’s not her,” Edebiri claimed at the time.

“I think she thinks that she’s still good even though she’s not singing for most of these songs.”

The Emmy winner also admitted that she was “fascinated” with the “On the Floor” chart topper’s career and “read up on” theories that she didn’t actually sing all of her music.

“A lot of the write-ups of the songs will be like, ‘J. Lo didn’t have time to make it to the studio,’ like, ‘J. Lo was busy,’” she claimed. “It’s like, ‘Doing what?’ Not singing, obviously!”

Nevertheless, Edebiri addressed the controversy during a sketch.

“It’s wrong to leave mean comments or post comments just for clout or run your mouth on a podcast and you don’t consider the impact because you’re 24 and stupid,” she said.

“But I think I speak for everyone when I say from now on, we’re going to be a lot more thoughtful about what we post online.”

Later in the show, Lopez sang the title track from her new album “This Is Me… Now,” while rocking a pink floral, floor-length gown with a daring split.

Her ninth studio album is set to be released on Feb. 16, and is a sequel to her 2002 album, “This Is Me… Then,” which was inspired by her now-husband, Ben Affleck.
