You lost some money if you bet that Jennifer Lopez and Shakira wouldn’t tear it up during the Super Bowl LIV Pepsi halftime show.There were energetic dance moves, surprise performers, some crowd surfing, pole dancing and plenty of hits as the pair co-headlined.”Hola, Miami,” Shakira said as she kicked off the performance.She then launched into a musical medley of her songs and her impressive guitar playing on, “Empire.”
Then it was time for “Jenny from the block.”
You just knew Lopez was going to perform “Waiting For Tonight” (she did) — and that there would be plenty of hip swivels from the superstar duo (there were).After all, hips don’t lie.
Lopez even worked the pole to remind us why she was one of the best parts of the film “Hustlers”
Reggaeton artists Bad Bunny and J Balvin also popped up to add some heat to the show.In a more family-friendly moment, Lopez’s 11-year-old daughter, Emme, appeared with a children’s choir to sing “Born in the U.S.A.” and “Let’s Get Loud” with her mom.
In a nod to her cultural roots, Lopez at one point wrapped herself in dual Puerto Rican and American flags.
“So excited to share the stage with you tonight @Shakira!,” Lopez wrote in a post before the event. “Let’s show the world what two little Latin girls can do. #LetsGetLoud #GirlPower #SuperBowlLIV #SBLIV.”And show the world they did.There were several rave reviews on social media, including from Lady Gaga, who was the halftime performer in 2017.
“[email protected] and @shakira and all the special guests were so incredible!!! What a fun halftime show I danced and smiled the whole time,” Gaga tweeted. “Such powerful sexy women!!!! On camera and off!!!!! Love you beautiful sexy talented women.”
