Popstar Jennifer Lopez has confessed that performing alongside her 11-year-old daughter Emme at the Super Bowl was "emotional".

Speaking on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, she hailed her daughter's fearlessness, revealing she wasn't remotely overawed by the occasion.

"She doesn't let it in her mind how big [the performance] is or how it scares you.

"That's what you have to do when you're up there, you know - you kind of have to [have] control. She has that gene, that gene of 'I'm comfortable up here...' I wish I felt more like her.

"She has a good time with it and I would never make her do it if it ever made her uncomfortable in any way."

The 50-year-old star also spoke about how emotional the entire experience was. 

"We started rehearsing in November for my set. It was just, every single day ... it's a short amount of time. You know what I mean, but so much goes into that moment.

"But it's hundreds of people, they put that stage together in seven minutes and then you get on it, and you rock. It's just crazy. It is such a big deal. And I'm just glad everybody liked it! That's why I got emotional."
