Jennifer Lopez and Shakira brought down the house at the Super Bowl 2020 halftime show. That’s not surprising—they’re incredible performers—but what did shock fans was seeing Lopez’s daughter, Emme, at one point during the set.
The 11-year-old made a surprise appearance during Lopez’s performance, to the delight of fans everywhere. Check out some videos from her cameo and some fan reactions, below:
Jennifer Lopez’s Super Bowl 2020 halftime performance was a true musical retrospective on her career—spanning from her early roots (“Waiting for Tonight”) to her biggest hits (“On the Floor”), and her most recent releases (“Booty”). Shakira’s set was also expansive: She performed “She Wolf,” “Whenever, Wherever,” and “Hips Don’t Lie,” among other songs.
Lopez pole-danced at one point during her performance, which was no doubt a nod to her critically-acclaimed turn in the 2019 movie Hustlers. She was believed to be a front runner for Best Supporting Actress for that role, but was wrongfully snubbed.
Lopez and Shakira released very kind statements about each other when it was announced they’d be co-headlining the Super Bowl 2020 halftime show.
“I’m so honored to be taking on one of the world’s biggest stages in the company of a fellow female artist to represent Latinos and Latinas from the U.S. and all over the world—and to top it off, on my birthday. This is a true American dream and we are going to bring the show of a lifetime!” Shakira said, while Lopez added, “Ever since I saw Diana Ross fly off into the sky at the halftime show, I dreamed of performing at the Super Bowl. And now it’s made even more special not only because it’s the NFL’s 100th anniversary, but also because I am performing with a fellow Latina. I can’t wait to show what us girls can do on the world’s biggest stage.”
