As we watch Jennifer Lopez perform with her daughter, Emme, on the Super Bowl 2020 halftime show, we can’t help but think about that saying, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”
On an episode of The “Tonight Show,” host Jimmy Fallon praised the mother of two for her jawdropping dance moves and vocals. After that, they talked about that “beautiful moment” when Emme joined her superstar mom on stage. She shared how the performance of her 11-year-old daughter warmed her heart.
Interestingly, Jennifer also revealed that Emme wasn’t afraid or nervous about being up on the stage. The 50-year-old star was proud that her daughter doesn’t let all the pressure of being up on the stage get to her head. After all, that’s the kind of control the stage demands.
The Iconic Performance
During the Super Bowl halftime performance, Emme, along with her mother, rocked the show in an all-white ensemble. Emme began her cameo by singing “Let’s Get Loud” alongside some other young performers. She then sang “Born in the USA” by Bruce Springsteen.
Jennifer commented that Emme nailed her performance, and naturally, everyone agreed—including Fallon. While answering a question, Lopez made it clear that she would never make her daughter do something which makes her uncomfortable. Jennifer also gushed that Emma has the ‘performance gene’ that makes her comfortable on stage.
A Special Behind-The-Scenes Moment
The “Hustlers” star shared a cute moment she had with her daughter in a behind-the-scenes video of the memorable show. In it, she is seen kissing Emme before her performance that rocked the entire sold-out stadium.
Jennifer also posted a photo on Instagram, where she expressed that she wants all little girls from all over the world to get on the stage with her so that they know how to use their voices and be proud of everything they are.
International performer Marc Anthony, dad of twins Emme and Max, couldn’t help but share a photo of her daughter’s onstage performance, as well. On the post, he declared how proud he was and how much he loved her.
Family Will Always Be Family!
11-year-old Ella Alexander and 15-year-old Natasha Alexander couldn’t help but praise Emme’s stunning performance. These two are the daughters of Alex Rodriguez, who is Jennifer’s fiancé.
Ella shared with Entertainment Tonight that the scene she enjoyed the most was when her stepsister performed with other kids on the stage, and she sang, like never before. On the other hand, Natasha told ET that it was the coolest thing she ever watched, and Emme truly stole the show with her angelic voice that night.
