Jennifer Lopez and daughter Emme on stage at the 2020 Halftime performance

This year at the halftime show Shakira and Jennifer Lopez tore up the show this year. According to CNN, Lopez’s 11-year-old daughter, Emme, also joined her on stage, with a children’s choir, to sing “Born in the USA” and “Let’s Get Loud”. But many people found this controversial due to the fact that the children were sitting in the structures that looked like cages. According to Buzzfeed this image was supposed to signify the immigrant children that are effected by the Trump administrations immigration measures.

There was also a point during Lopez’s performance when she wrapped herself in a Puerto Rico and American flag coat. One side of the coat was the Puerto Rican flag and the other side was the American flag.
