Lopez left the stage and two of her female backup dancers gyrated on Lloyd as the 2009 hit “Birthday Sex” by R&B singer Jeremih played in the background. Lloyd’s 37th birthday is Tuesday.
Lopez returned to the stage, and she and her female dancers moved sensually in front of Lloyd, who was cheered on by the audience.
“Carli, you doing OK?” Lopez asked, then sitting on Lloyd’s lap as she sang a slowed-down version of “If You Had My Love,” her debut single released in 1999.
The U.S. women’s national soccer team has been on a celebratory run since beating the Netherlands to capture a record fourth Women’s World Cup title earlier this week. On Wednesday, the team won trophies at The ESPYS and was honored with a ticker tape parade in New York City.
Lloyd wasn’t the only special guest at the concert: Lopez’s 11-year-old daughter, Emme Maribel Muñiz, joined her onstage to sing a duet, which earned a standing ovation from the audience.
Lopez’s “It’s My Party” Tour will return to Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.
