Jaden Smith took the stage Friday night at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival with his sister, Willow, alongside.
The set began with Willow singing while suspended from a harness in the air before Jaden came out. She stayed on stage, backing him and dancing, about 80 percent of the time.
The siblings’ mother, actress Jada Pinkett Smith, also appeared to be in the crowd inside the Sahara Tent (Jaden thanked his “moms” for being there) — but no sign of father Will Smith.
Earlier today, E! reported model Kendall Jenner was excited to see Jaden, a friend, perform. The model showed up to Jaden’s set alongside Hailey Bieber, according to an Instagram story posted by user @lurippi.
“I’m a little nervous on how I’m going to react at Coachella,” Jenner reportedly said on her podcast, Zaza World Radio on Beats 1 on Apple Music.
Apparently, the model cried at one of Jaden’s first shows. “I think I might have to leave, just from straight up emotion,” she added.

During his set, Jaden performed one song standing on the hood of an elevated car. The license plate said “ERYS,” which is the name of his upcoming album. He also had a dance troupe that would come out periodically with black sweatshirts that said “ERYS IS COMING” on them.
The set ended with a good-bye then a big, long hug from Willow. They skipped off the stage together.
