The moment came shortly after Lopez, whose parents are Puerto Rican, joined her daughter, Emme, in singing the hit by Bruce Springsteen while wearing the flag on stage. Moments later, dancers could be seen removing the flag, which also depicted the U. Lopez received instant praise from social media users for the move moments after the performance on Sunday night, which marked the first time two Latinas have headlined the halftime show.

She and Shakira also drew attention over another part of the halftime show, which featured Lopez's daughter and other children in what appeared to many on social media to be cages.

People, even celebrities, quickly took notice of the girl's talent and her remarkable performance.
