The 2020 Super Bowl halftime show was all about Emme Maribel Muniz, the daughter of Jennifer Lopez, who stole the show with her rendition of “Let’s Get Loud,” backed by fellow star Shakira on drums.
In the middle of a tied game, Shakira and Lopez performed a medley of their hits, along with the Spanish-language classics that fueled their decades-long careers.
Emme and her twin brother Maximilian David Muñiz is Lopez’s daughter with ex-husband and singer Marc Anthony.
While Jennifer Lopez was very clearly passing the song right along to her daughter for her national debut, Emme has been following her mother’s footsteps even before her big night. Last year, the prodigy went viral with her version of “If I Ain’t Got You.”
At halftime, Lopez joined her daughter and went on to sing Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA” while draped in a Puerto Rican flag made of a feather boa. The 50-year-old singer and pole dancing “Hustlers” star was born in New York to parents from Puerto Rico. Sources told Page Six that Emme’s performance would serve “as the symbol of the American dream.”
Shakira and Lopez were also joined on the halftime stage by reggaeton superstars J Balvin and Bad Bunny at the 2020 Super Bowl at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Florida.
“When I think of my daughter, when I think of all the little girls in the world, to be able to … see that two Latinas [are] doing this in this country at this time, it’s just very empowering for us,” said Lopez, whose parents are Puerto Rican. Shakira is Colombian.
