Jennifer Lopez brought her second-ever solo headlining tour It’s My Party to Minneapolis-St. Paul’s Xcel Energy Center arena on June 28. Here were the best moments:

  • Lopez donned a cheeky outfit that only covered one side of her derrière. “That’s a party outfit — just one cheek.”

  • The singer slowed things down early on with an extended sensual section of the show. “I know what you’re thinking — you want some booty!”

  • In a quick diss to ex Drake, Lopez sang a line of his song “Hotline Bling” and said it was all just a booty call.

  • Fabulous sets! The runway end stage turned into a giant multi-tiered cake, complete with video screens.

  • An over the top amount of dancers kept the night visually intriguing and was on brand with her TV show, World of Dance.

  • A confessional atmosphere. Lopez admitted her fans have helped her back up again after every fall in her life or career.

  • The dancing. Lopez still has it and whenever she put down the microphone, her true abilities shined; she bounced partner-to-partner in an exciting, rapid-paced fashion. The crowd roared after every shameless booty shake.

  • Bang for your buck. The entire spectacle was over two hours long and featured 22 songs.

  • A cute family moment happened as Lopez and Marc Anthony’s daughter Emme joined her mom on stage to belt out the Sia-penned “Limitless.” It was just one of many moments Lopez impressed with her live singing.

  • A birthday rave. J. Lo took it back to the ‘90s with a Day-Glo colored, club fantasy finale. Her biggest hits “Waiting for Tonight” and “On the Floor” never looked better.
