After a year away from American Idol, Jennifer Lopez is returning to the judges' panel a changed woman.
"That was such a transformative year for me in so many ways," Lopez told reporters Monday ahead of Wednesday's premiere of Idol's 13th season. "I had just divorced, I went on tour with the kids, and I left Idol. All my security blankets were gone, and I was out there doing something I had never done before."
But as she travelled the globe on her first world tour, she relied on support from her mother and boyfriend Casper Smart, whom Lopez called "fantastic" with her twins Emme and Max, 5.

After paying tribute to salsa queen Celia Cruz and tearing it up "On the Floor" at the AMAs Sunday night, Jennifer Lopez continued to party well into the night.
Lopez attended an after party at Chateau Marmont hosted by the owners of DSquared.
The American Idol judge, whose Kohls campaign (#getjenniferthere) and knockout performance made her the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter, wore a black DSquared dress designed by the fashion house's twin brothers, Dean and Dan.
While DJ Big Syphe spun tunes, Lopez, 44, spent the night dancing with boyfriend Beau "Casper" Smart and stunning BFF Leah Remini, with whom she shared a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs.

At some point every mother has to panic just a little.
For Jennifer Lopez it was when her 5-year-old old son Max was bleeding under his chin and needed stitches, the latest milestone in motherhood for the Dance Again singer.
"I hear that all little boys have a scar on their chin," she told PEOPLE of the recent mishap. "Of course, I was freaking out, but he was fine. He said it tickled."
With her son, who she calls "The Boss," recovering and spending the weekend with Lopez's ex, Marc Anthony, Lopez and beau Casper Smart headed to Las Vegas for the grand opening of mega club Hakkasan inside the MGM Grand.

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, love is truly in the air.
Jennifer Lopez and boyfriend Casper Smart shared a romantic dinner on Friday night at Cecconi's in West Hollywood.
Although the couple had some "security-looking" personnel with them, they still managed to "canoodle at the table," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Wearing a dress and sequined jacket, Lopez looked "stunning," while Smart kept things casual in slacks and a top.
"They were sweet together and Jennifer was laughing all night long," the source adds.
While there were no huge public displays of affection, the couple sat on the same side of the table and stayed close throughout their meal.

Jennifer Lopez stepped out on Saturday night for dinner at Catch in Miami.
Although boyfriend Casper Smart didn't join the singer, she dined with a group of close friends – including her manager Benny Medina.
"She was in a great mood enjoying a night out on the town, " an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Lopez was discussing "how she just finished her world tour while shooting a movie at the same time," the source adds.
The table shared every dish that was brought out to them. The group especially loved the peanut butter souffle, which they were overheard obsessing about.

Jennifer Lopez has many things: perma-radiance, Pucci dresses, lots and lots of Louboutins and a $250 million empire. But she's also a 43-year-old single mom trying to learn from her mistakes.
"I'm not a young girl anymore who can throw caution to the wind," says the mega-star, who is settled into a sofa, picking at a small bowl of sweet potato and corn mash after a daylong PEOPLE photo shoot.
By her side is Casper Smart, 25, her live-in boyfriend. But while the choreographer – whom she calls by his given name, Beau – makes Lopez very happy, she's quick to point out that after her split from Marc Anthony, the father of her 4-year-old twins, Max and Emme, she's not rushing things.
