During the night, Lopez was treated to a special movie called A.K.A. The Movie (No More Worries). It was a personal video of the singer that featured memories of her most recent tour.  

"When she watched the film, she was laughing, very giddy and screaming about it with her friends," the source revealed.

The party continued into the night with cake, dancing and good friends all around.  "She looked fabulous," the source said. "She spent the night hanging out and enjoyed seeing her friends."


This isn't the first birthday party thrown for the "Dance Again" singer this summer .

"No one danced more than Jennifer," a source told E! News. "She barely sat down all night! She was really tearing it up, dancing until the very end."
