Videos of the duet were also posted to TikTok, which immediately went viral and people couldn’t stop but notice Emme’s legendary introduction. Jennifer Lopez said:
“The last time we performed together was in a big stadium like this and I ask them to sing with me all the time, and they won’t. So this is a very special occasion. They are very, very busy, booked, and pricey. They cost me when they come out. But they’re worth every single penny because they’re my favorite duet partner of all time. So if you will indulge me.”

I don't think that's even her real child… Simply characters with props to push narratives.

We know that Emme is the child of Jennifer Lopez and the star’s former husband, Marc Anthony, whom she divorced in 2014. In the video, the proud star can be heard saying ”Give it up for my baby,” at the end of the epic performance, the teen carried a rainbow-colored microphone on stage and sang a version of Christina Perri’s ‘A Thousand Years’ alongside her proud mother. This happened to be the first time they were on stage together since 2020 when the star last performed at the Super Bowl Halftime Show in Miami.
