Jennifer Lopez and Shakira are celebrating an epic night at Hard Rock Stadiumin Miami.
The 50-year-old Puerto Rican superstar and the 43-year-old Colombian superstar teamed up for an electrifying Super Bowl halftime show.
J.Loand Shakimade history at Super Bowl LIVon Sunday as the first two Latina women to co-headline the coveted halftime show gig, and they each brought their unique styles to a worldwide audience, performing a combined 20 songs in 14 minutes. (Gloria Estefanwas part of the 1992 and 1999 halftime shows, and sent her support for Lopez and Shakira, both of whom she has written songs for.)
Shakira kicked things off with her hit “She Wolf,” then seamlessly transitioned into her track “Empire,” where she showcased her ability to shred on the guitar.
After a brief dance interlude, Shakira — who rocked a sparkly red two-piece — broke into “Whenever, Wherever” and a cover of Cardi B’s “I Like It,” with an assist from Puerto Rican Latin trap and reggaeton singer Bad Bunny, who appears on the original singer.
Shaki, who celebrated her 43rd birthday on Super Bowl Sunday, then showed off her dancing skills once again before singing “Hips Don’t Lie,” during which she crowd-surfed atop a group of enthusiastic fans.
Then, Lopez took over the program, taking the stage atop a skyscraper-like pole for a high-energy performance of “Jenny from the Block” and “Ain’t It Funny,” and then transitioned into “Get Right.”
After shedding her studded black leather bodysuit for a sparkly silver one, Lopez showed off her Hustlersmoves own on a stripper pole, while singing “Waiting for Tonight.”
J.Lo was then joined by J. Balvin, who assisted her on “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.”
Lopez continued to flaunt her moves to “Mi Gente” before moving on to a high-octane version of “On the Floor.”
The performance then transformed into a family affair as Lopez brought out her 11-year-old daughter Emme, who hit the stage singing a slowed-down rendition of “Let’s Get Loud” — with Shakira on drums — before her mom came back out wearing a large jacket made of feathers that featured the American flag on one side and the Puerto Rican flag on the other. It was a show of support to the territory, which has been affected by natural disasters in recent years, including Hurricane Maria and a recent damaging earthquake.
Emme briefly sang Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.” while the set design featured glowing cages housing child performers, a marked gesture of solidarity toward the Latin community and those impacted by anti-immigration policies.
Then Shakira joined Lopez to sing “Let’s Get Loud” together.
The duo then moved on to Shakira’s hit “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)” before switching back to “Let’s Get Loud,” at which point they closed out their set with impressive synchronized shimmiesas fireworks went off behind them, before wrapping their historic performance with a hug.
The countdown is on for Jennifer Lopez & Shakira’s highly anticipated Super Bowl performance…
For the first time ever, two Latinas will be taking over the halftime show performance that promises to be powerful, electric, and most of all meaningful for the Latinx community.
“I think it’s very important for us to convey a message unity,” Shakira said during the Super Bowl Halftime Show press conference in Miami on Thursday, January 30, sponspred by the NFL and Pepsi. “To show what a relevant force the Latin community is in this country, how much we have to offer, our idiosyncrasies, our culture that is so unique and so diverse.”
Lopez and Shakira are stoked about their performances but admit they’re feeling the pressure of this big moment in their careers.
“I never imagined singing at the Super Bowl one day,” says Jennifer Lopez, whose family has always been a fan of the New York Jets. But for Shakira, the story is different. Since she grew in Colombia, American football wasn’t really part of her life.
This year’s Super Bowl halftime show promises to have more songs, dancers and time than ever, according to the duo.
So, what will the halftime show offer? A lot of energy and incredible moments.
“When I saw her show, I was like, ‘Wow,’ and she felt the same way,” adds Lopez, who didn’t confirm if her children will be involved in the show, but did say the duo plans to pay homage to the late Kobe Bryantand his family.
“It’s nerve-racking. This moment is an example of how anything is possible no matter the size of your dreams,” Shakira said. “The Latin culture is unique and diverse and we are truly honored. “
For both women, it’s important they highlight their cultures on stage come Sunday evening to inspire the upcoming generation.
“Shakira being from Baranquilla, me being from the Bronx, the two of us could have never imagined we’d be playing the Super Bowl one day,” JLo said during the conference. “And I think it’s such a wonderful opportunity to pay homage to that and also to remind us all of what an important force we are,” Shakira added. “I wasn’t born or raised in the U.S. , but here I am—a Latina participating in this very, very American event, but also a global event. One hundred million people will be watching. I feel truly honored to be representing so many people out there.”
