Lopez was the host of this year's event.
Jennifer Lopez danced to Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’ at the American Music Awards and the rapper didn’t look impressed.
AMAs host Lopez kicked off the awards show with a medley of 2015’s biggest hits, including ‘Anaconda’.
However as she began to sing the hit, the AMA cameras cut to the audience and caught Nicki Minaj looking unimpressed.

Although it didn’t appear that Minaj was really angry, fans on Twitter were quick to point out her facial expression.

But Nicki quickly responded to the accusations on Twitter, explaining that she wasn’t trying to start any issues – she was simply looking at her own face on the screen.
