J.Lo’s Daughter, Emme, Stole the Show at the Super Bowl Halftime Show and Everyone’s Raving About It

It looks like Jennifer Lopez has some fierce competition on stage⁠—and she’s proud of it.

The seemingly ageless J.Lo and Shakira just proved why they’re powerhouses when it comes to performing. The 50-year-old actress, singer, and dancer teamed up with 43-year-old Shakira to put on an amazing Super Bowl halftime show last February 2 at the Miami Hard Rock Stadium.

The talked-about performance left the world in awe. However, someone who made a cameo in the performance stole the show and had people raving about it.

That’s no other than Lopez’s daughter, 11-year-old Emme Maribel Muñiz.

Emme came into the spotlight singing her version of her mom’s song, Let’s Get Loud, alongside other young performers. She then switched the tempo and belted out a bit of Bruce Springsteen’s iconic Born in the USA. The mom-and-daughter duo clearly enjoyed their time sharing a stage.

During a guest appearance on the February 7 episode of The Tonight Show, the Hustlers star proudly talked about her daughter and her performance. She revealed that Emme didn’t feel nervous at all to perform at the sold-out show.

After talking about Jennifer’s performance, the show’s host, Jimmy Fallon, asked about Emme’s major stint. The proud mom-of-two revealed that her daughter wasn’t nervous before hitting the stage. She said that Emme definitely got the performance gene, as she didn’t let the magnitude of the event shake her. For the Jenny From the Block singer, controlling yourself before going up or while up on stage is important for performers.

It’s no surprise that Emme has the talent and charisma in performing. She and her twin brother, Maximilian David Muñiz, are the children of renowned musical acts: Lopez and Puerto Rican salsa singer Marc Anthony.

During the late-night show interview, Lopez also expressed that she would never make Emme do something she was not comfortable doing. She said that the little girl showed excitement and enjoyment in performing. Jennifer also said she wishes she felt more like Emme after seeing her genuinely amped up about it. Fallon agreed that Emme did a pretty good job during the show.

He’s not the only one who has raved about Emme, though. Her dad posted a photo of her with a sweet message. The You Sang to Me crooner expressed his love for his daughter and said that he’ll forever be hers.

The two daughters of retired baseball star Alex Rodriguez, who is JLo’s fiancé, also praised Emme’s performance. Ella Alexander, 11, said that her favorite part was when she came out with a bunch of little girls and started singing. For Ella’s older sister, Natasha, seeing Emme sing was the coolest thing. She said that she’ll always be proud of her stepsister and that her voice is angelic.
