Jennifer Lopez and Shakira totally owned the stage during Sunday night’s Super Bowl halftime show in Miami with one of the best performances we’ve seen in years. But there was another rising star who everyone is still buzzing about: Lopez’s 11-year-old daughter, Emme.
Now we’re getting to see the lead-up to the headline-making performance via a behind-the-scenes video shared by J. Lo on YouTube and Instagram. It opens with the singer giving her daughter a sweet kiss on the forehead before they hug each other tight and then head down the tunnel toward the field.
“These moments were captured just minutes before we hit the stage last night,” she wrote in a caption on Instagram. “All I want my girls, the little girls on stage with me and all over the world to know is how to use their voices and be proud of everything they are. We are proud to recognize that all of us together are what makes this beautiful country truly great. ✨❤️??”
Emme had amazing poise on stage at the Super Bowl, and you can see how both calm and psyched she is in the video. It really should come as no surprise given the fact that her parents are Marc Anthony and freaking J. Lo, but still…it’s the Super Bowl, in front of an enormous crowd and one of the biggest television audiences in the world. If you follow Jennifer Lopez on social media, you may have heard snippets of Emme’s fantastic voice before, but for most people, her cameo on “Let’s Get Loud” and “Born in the USA” was the first time.
Emme totally crushed it, naturally. “Baby Emme absolutely killing it. look at this little star,” one person tweeted after the performance. Ryan Seacrest loved it too, writing, “The choreo…. the throwback songs…. the production… Emme’s surprise appearance. Incredible @jlo @shakira! #SuperBowl”
We can’t wait to see what Emme does next.
