Watch Shakira And Jennifer Lopez Display Latin Pride At Super Bowl 2020 Halftime Show

Jennifer Lopez and Shakira turned the Super Bowl halftime show into a giant Latin dance party on Sunday. They wowed the sold-out crowd with their greatest hits. The superstar singers and dancers transformed the field into a concert. Each woman brought their unique elements of dance and flavour to the performance.

 

The performance, at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium, was a high-energy celebration of culture and abs, as both women showcased soaring vocals and thunderous dance routines. This follows last year’s disappointing performance which featured Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi.

 

Shakira opened in a glittering ensemble, getting the crowd of 65,000 on their feet with “She Wolf” and “Wherever, Whenever”. She was then joined by Puerto Rican reggaeton singer Bad Bunny for a few lines of “I Like It” (originally sung by rap star Cardi B). Then she segued into her iconic hit, “Hips Don’t Lie”.

The stage then cleared as Jennifer Lopez appeared atop a miniature Empire State Building, as Queen Kong, a nod to her New York roots. After a few bars of “Jenny From the Block,” Jenny herself took the crowd through a medley of “Love Don’t Cost A Thing”, “Get Right” and “On the Floor”. Her transitions were as fast and sharp as her dance moves.

 

Lopez started out wearing a black leather, heavily cutout jumpsuit. However, she soon shed that for a revealing silver number as she performed a pole dance to “Waiting For Tonight”, alongside Colombian reggaeton star J Balvin.

The dance was in honour of her acclaimed performance as Ramona in “Hustlers,” a film Lopez also produced. She earned a Golden Globe nomination for the role — and many thought she should have won an Oscar nod.

 

Her daughter, Emme, then took the stage for the show’s most political moment: small children in light-up “cages” surrounded the stage, a pointed reference to a President Donald Trump administration “zero tolerance” policy launched in 2018 that saw thousands of children separated from their parents at the border.

 

Lopez then returned wearing an American flag feather cape — that she then lifted to reveal the flag of Puerto Rico, the US territory struggling in the aftermath of earthquakes and a devastating hurricane.

Backed up by Shakira on the drums, the mother and daughter sang a few lines of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born In the USA” before transitioning into “Let’s Get Loud”.

 

Shakira, now in a fringed gold outfit, took centre stage once more for “Waka Waka”, the song she wrote for the 2010 football World Cup.

 

The song quickly turned into a full-on Latin dance number, with Shakira and Lopez showcasing fierce, high-intensity footwork on a raised platform and ending the show back-to-back in a “Charlie’s Angels”-esque pose.

 

“Muchas gracias!” Shakira called out.

Twitter lit up after the performance, with many praising the women’s skills. The hashtags #Latinas and #Latinapower also began trending.

 

Lady Gaga, who performed at the Super Bowl halftime in 2017, called the performance “so incredible!!!” “I danced and smiled the whole time,” the singer tweeted. “Such powerful s**y women!!!!”
