Lopez even rapped along to a Cardi B song while the crowd cheered her on.

After a show like that, Lopez deserves to kick up her Louboutins.

Taking the stage, Lopez, 49, performed a medley of hits that ranged from "I'm Real", complete with a cameo from Ja Rule, to this year's "Dinero", spanning the many decades of her celebrated career.
