Yesterday the world tuned in to watch what was expected to be a phenomenal Super Bowl halftime show featuring two of the industry's biggest music stars. And it totally exceeded expentations. Shakira and J.Lo brought on their best moves tunes, but a surprise guest appearance won the night, taking us all by surprise, and making this already memorable show a truly epic one.
After 60 minutes of American football, the much-awaited halftime performance kicked off at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami with birthday girl, Shakira, singing and dancing to a medley of her top hits in a dazzling red sequin number from Peter Dundas. As the Colombian-Lebanese singer’s performance came to an end, Puerto Rican trap singer Bad Bunny joined the stage to sing Cardi B’s hit I Like It. A total treat, but the best was still yet to come.
Soon after Shakira left the stage it was time for J.Lo to shine and she did not disaapoint.
The new face of Versace performed her biggest hits wearing none other that, you guessed it, Versace. The American-Puerto Rican superstar made sure to pay tribute to all the Latins inviting reggaeton singer, J Balvin onstage. But what really knocked everyone's socks off was the surprise performance from Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's daughter Emme Muñiz.
The 11-year old, joined by a choir of young girls, performed a mellow rendition of her mom’s hit Let’s Get Loud showing millions of people around the world the talent she inherited her parents' impeccable vocal chords.
Afterwards ‘mini J.Lo’ joined her mother on-stage, wearing a gigantic Puerto Rican flag, alongside Shakira, to close the epic show with the song in its original tempo along with a rendition of Bruce Springsteen's Born In The USA.
This is not the first time Jennifer has proudly shown off her daughter’s beautiful voice. Back in June, the star took to her Instagram to share a video of her daughter joining her on-stage for a duet of her song, Limitless.
After seeing this, one thing we know for sure is that this show will always be remembered as a celebration of Latin American culture, and the day that little Emme proved the world she’s got her mother's star-like quality. This is only the beginning for ‘mini J.Lo’, and we're definitely rooting for her.
