Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez's night at the 2017 Met Gala was filled with dancing. The Shades of Blue star opened up during her appearance on Monday's Today Show about fashion's biggest night, where she and her beau made their red carpet debut as a couple. "We had a great time that night," the 47-year-old said. "We had an amazing time. We went in, we danced. It was awesome." After spilling the details from their night on the town, Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie wanted to know all about the MLB star's moves. "He's a good dancer," the Aint Your Mama singer said. "He has a great time. Again, one of the things I love is that he loves to dance and I love to dance."

J-Lo continued, "He can dance. He dances Merengue. He dances all the important stuff for me. When the Spanish music comes on, he knows what he's doing." However, the former Yankees star wasn't the only one showing off his moves at the annual Met Ball on 1 May. Giancarlo Giammetti captured a video of Jennifer dancing at the star-studded gala, which he captioned, "When a dancer always a dancer @jlo #metball." When asked by the Today hosts if Jennifer minds the moniker "J-Rod" that fans have dubbed the couple, the mum-of-two replied, "I don’t care. It doesn't matter. I figured something like that would happen." In regards to the name "A-Lo," she laughed, "I don't like that one as much."
