Say what you want about Jennifer Lopez’s vocals (y’all stay letting her have it), you can’t take away from the fact she’s one hell of an entertainer. You know when you’re going to a JLo show, the production is going to be top notch and the energy will be LIVE.

We see her beau Alex Rodriguez wasn't far. He made sure he was in the mix to celebrate the "All I Have" singer making the TIME 100 Most Influential People list this year.

Leslie Jones couldn't contain herself and was totally fan girl'n out in the audience. Watch her hilariously cheer JLo on below: 



Ha! Leslie got her WHOLE life. Not even mad.

She also rocked her ex-fling Drake's "Teenage Fever" and pointed to her man in the audience looking on:

"Grown-ish" starlet Yara Shahidi, rocking a REEM ACRA dress, and her mother Keri Shahidi were twinning at the event. Not with their fashions, it's just Yara is a spitting image of her gorgeous mother.

During a short speech at the #TIME100 gala in New York City on April 24, @taranajaneen, creator of the #MeToo movement and a TIME 100 honoree this year, said she had a lot of people who have inspired her, "but I think this moment is really important for me to raise a glass to all the black and brown girls around the world, particularly the black and brown girls like me. I raise a glass to six‑year‑old Tarana, who was confused and didn’t know about the things that had been happening to her and spent years and years and years trying to figure it out until somebody else let me know that I was not alone and gave me the courage to tell other people that they’re not alone. And so I raise my glass to survivors, I raise my glass to little black and brown girls like me. Hopefully they look at me in this moment and they find hope and they’re inspired, and they know that they’re not alone and they’ll never be alone as long as I have a microphone."
