According to an eyewitness, the A-list couple arrived at the star-studded soiree shortly after 1:30 a.m. Lopez, 48, then got down on the dance floor to Rihanna’s “What’s My Name” as other attendees looked on. Soon after, the “World of Dance” judge was feeling flirty and started grinding on Rodriguez, 42, to the beat of Fat Joe and Ashanti’s track “What’s Love.”

The onlooker noted that the Grammy winner and the baseball pro “went crazy when the DJ played [Lopez’s] song ‘Get Right.’ She performed it for her table and everyone was videotaping her … Everyone was crowded around [her] table watching her dance.”

Earlier in the evening, the Shades of Blue star and the former New York Yankees player turned heads on the 2018 Met Gala red carpet. Lopez slayed in an embroidered Balmain gown, while Rodriguez sported an all-black tuxedo at the “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” themed event.
