You've probably already seen Jennifer Lopez looking A.M.A.Z.I.N.G at the People's Choice Awards on Sunday night, where she was named People's Icon of 2020.

If we're being honest, we were expecting her to turn up with what is fast-becoming her signature hair look: The Shag. Jlo suits any hairstyle Chris Appleton throws at her, but around a month ago we started to notice a more mussed-up texture creeping in. It began with a low-key mullet shag and progressed into a '90s aerobics instructor crimp, which we also loved. She had a little break from shagging about with some Spice Girls space buns, but The Shag doesn't die that easily, because it was back in the blink of an eye (in the guise of cool-girl bedhead).

So yeah, you can see why we assumed she would be loyal to her tried and tested texture for the big awards. But we were wrong, so very wrong, because the hair she went for was glam, glossy and appeared to be inspired by another popstar's signature look...

Jen posted a picture to instagram Stories of her very high ponytail, which tumbled down from the top of her head in glossy ringlets. The look seemed familiar, and then we noticed the song Jlo was playing for the reveal... Ariana Grande's Positions!

Her fave song of the moment, or a nod to her muse for the night?

Ariana did just debut a half-up hairdo and school assembly fringe, so maybe she's given Jlo temporary custody of the high ponytail? Not a bad idea, give your scalp a break, Ariana...
