When Madonna kicked off The Celebration Tour at London's O2 Arena on Oct. 14, 2023, she had five very special guests. Mercy (pictured here) played piano for mom during "Bad Girl," and elsewhere in the show Estere deejayed as well as danced to "Vogue." David Banda later came out and accompanied his mom on guitar.

During her Las Vegas residency, Kelly Clarkson welcomed some sweet guests to the stage to help her perform a few of her hit songs. After her son, Remington "Remy" Alexander, accompanied mom's performance of "Whole Lotta Woman" with some adorable dance moves, daughter River Rose stepped up to the plate for a performance of "Heartbeat Song."

The 9-year-old sang the 2015 track with Clarkson after the proud mom shared that she had "killed it in soundcheck!”

Before she left the stage, the mom of two told her daughter: “You look gorgeous. You did amazing. I love you. I’ll see you in a little bit.”

With not one, but two performers as parents (and another one for his "bonus dad"), it's no surprise that Kingston Rossdale is stage-ready. In August 2023, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s eldest son showed off his skills during a surprise performance at stepdad Blake Shelton’s bar and live music venue, Ole Red in Tishomingo, Oklahoma.

In a video shared to TikTok, the teen was seen taking the stage and confidently chatting with the audience before showcasing his voice.

Dave Grohl’s eldest daughter, Violet, has performed alongside her rock star dad on numerous occasions. During the Foo Fighters' set at the Glastonbury Festival in 2023, the teen joined the band on stage for a rendition of the song "Show Me How."

“My favorite singer in the world," Grohl said as his daughter joined him on stage. "This is a song I wrote for my mother, Violet’s grandmother. This is ‘Show Me How.' "

“That’s my girl!” he yelled as the as the song came to an end.

Violet was no stranger to taking the stage with her dad, having done so earlier this summer and various times over the years. In 2021, she joined the band during their Lollapalooza set in Chicago to perform a cover of "Nausea" by the band X, which the father-daughter duo recorded together prior to the performance.

Dave told Jimmy Kimmel that it was the first time the two had "recorded together, just the two of us." He added, "I'm so proud of it because I love her very much and she's an amazing singer, but it kind of follows this lineage and family history from this guy in Switzerland to now my daughter, Violet. It's this Bonebrake family tree that means a lot to me." (Dave had previously discovered that he was distantly related to X drummer DJ Bonebrake.)

Violet teamed up with her dad in 2021 as part of "The Hanukkah Sessions" for a performance of Amy Winehouse's 2003 track "Take the Box" and in 2018, the two covered Adele's "When We Were Young" at a benefit concert.

Two years later, Willow joined her mom for a performance of their duet during the first night of Pink's Summer Carnival 2023 Tour.

Proud dad Carey Hart shared a tribute to the moment on Instagram writing, "So proud of Willz to get up on stage w/ mama @pink !!!!! Must be a surreal moment for mama to have w/ her lil girl on stage 😢.”

As the daughter of the "Piano Man" himself (mom is model Christie Brinkley), Alexa Ray Joel started composing her own music from a very young age.

"I grew up listening to my dad write songs at the piano for hours," she told Chorus and Verse in 2006, adding, "I definitely believe that music is something that is in my blood, something that I was born to do."

She released her first EP in 2006 and in 2021, when she released the pop ballad "Seven Years," she told PEOPLE that her dad shared his support for the song as soon as it was released.

"He's pretty low-key, but he was like, 'Honey, this is great!' So enthusiastic,” she said.

When talking about her songwriting process, Alexa Ray says she learned a thing or two from her dad.

"I write music in the same way [my dad] does: melody first, and lyrics second," she told Chorus and Verse. Over the years, Alexa Ray has appeared in several of her dad's music videos including "The River of Dreams" and "A Matter of Trust” and has joined him onstage on numerous occasions.
