Randy Jackson on Jennifer Lopez Divorce: 'She's a Trooper'

Is it just me, or is Jennifer Lopez making divorce look like a blast? She shows up to Vegas' iHeartRadio event and kills it onstage, looking better than ever. And now American Idol co-judge Randy Jackson confirms she's been doing just fine.

"We've been doing auditions and she's rising above," Jackson told PEOPLE. "She's strong, she's a trooper, she's a great girl. She's amazing."

Jackson also performed at the event, and you gotta love him, but he was nothing compared to Lopez. Lopez performed Papi, wearing a skimpy red outfit that made me realize I really, really need to hit the gym.

"I don't want to see anyone trying to act cool around here," she told the crowd. "I want to see you dancing and jumping and singing and acting like a fool."

From there, Lopez headed to Pure Nightclub, where she drank Dom Perignon and partied until 3:30 in the morning. She also got a lap dance from one of her backup dancers, danced to even more of her songs, and spent some time with fans. Just typing that sentence made me tired, so I have no idea how she has all that energy.

And from there, J.Lo's getting right back to work with Idol. And her fellow judges are there for her.

"Whatever help we need to give, we'll give her," Randy said.

Oh, I'm sure you will. So Jen seems to be doing just fine. Marc Anthony might be a different story. He broke down at a concert while celebrating his 43rd birthday earlier this month. Meanwhile, Jen is still linked to actor/total hottie Bradley Cooper. A source told Closer magazine:

"Jennifer feels terrible that Marc has taken their split so badly. She's keen to see more of Bradley, but is scared about how Marc will react. He's not coping and has lost 15lbs recently."

Does Marc Anthony have 15lbs to lose? The source continued:

"Jennifer cares for Marc and is worried about him, even though she knows their marriage is over. But her support could make it worse, as it gives him hope of a reconciliation. It's only natural Jennifer wants to have fun again. She is not going to suddenly stop caring for Marc."
