Laverne Cox cried tears of joy when she made history by snagging an Emmy nomination. Then she went a to Justin Timberlake concert!
It’s been an amazing week for the “Orange Is The New Black” fabulista! She was the first transgender woman to earn an Emmy nod, and she got to do an appearance in John Legend’s touching video for “You & I”!
With so much to smile about, the actress decided to kick off her weekend a little early by taking in a show! “I’m going to dance, jump around and sing Justin Timberlake songs all night long,” she said.
Laverne must have really turnt up becasue onlookers at the concert told People.com that she “put everyone to shame.”
Supposedly she was dippin’ it and doin’ it while feeling all of the fantasy during Justin’s set while other celebs in the audience–including his JT’s former ‘NSYNC bandmate Joey Fatone–were bobbing their heads along to the music.
“[Laverne] was up on her feet breaking out some amazing moves,” the onlooker says. “She sang along and seemed to be having the best time of anyone there.”
