Jennifer Lopez got a little verklempt during a concert performance this weekend, proving the diva isn't afraid to share her softer side with fans.

Lopez staged an elaborate retelling of her love life Saturday via her new song "One Love," jamming for an audience at the Mohegan Sun casino's 15th anniversary in Connecticut. The choreographed number accompanying the track included lookalikes of exes such as Diddy, Ben Affleck and Marc Anthony. 

All that dancing catharsis got the best of Lopez, who broke down into tears during the number.

"After I sang the song, I’m standing there, and I realized that I did bare a little bit of my thoughts in this song. I also acted it out, kind of, for the audience," she told "Access Hollywood" after the show. "The way they received it was very touching."

She added: "I think that they felt what I felt, which is, you know, I'm just a girl, just like everybody else, trying to find my way."

Lopez recently split from third husband Anthony, with whom she shares twins Max and Emme. Most recently, the "American Idol" judge has been spotted spending time with actor Bradley Cooper. Never let it be said that Jennifer doesn't love some new dance steps.
