“I ask them to sing with me all the time, but they don’t. So this is a very special occasion. They’re very, very busy. Booked. And pricey,” Lopez said.
“They cost me when they come out. But they’re worth every penny because they’re my all-time favorite duet partner.”
The pair played a number of songs together, including J.Lo’s hit song “Let’s Get Loud.” Videos on social media also show them singing Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years,” and a verse from Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA.”

Their Springsteen cover was a nod to their Mid-2020 Superbowl performance, where they sang the same song onstage together. Lopez later revealed that she chose the track to emphasize that the United States is a country for everyone.
In the video of their performance this week – which you can watch above – Emme can be seen with a rainbow microphone during the performance.
Fans have praised J.Lo for seemingly respecting Emme’s she/she pronouns.
One fan commented, “Awww JLo with respect for the pronouns.” Another said: “I love how we mothers will support our children no matter what! I love this, go Emme.”
Earlier this month, Lopez gushed about her fiancé ben Affleck in an interview with Good morning Americasays her relationship is the “best time” of her life and reveals that she is “building a family” with the actor.
