Jennifer Lopez and Shakira headlined the Super Bowl 2020 halftime show, which happened Sunday, February 2, and they certainly did not disappoint. Both women are known for their impeccable, awe-inspiring showmanship: choreography, theatrics, an X-factor, the works. And they brought all of those elements to (arguably) the world’s biggest stage for 12 glorious minutes.
The performance was a seamless hybrid of Lopez and Shakira’s discographies. They performed songs both together and apart. And they didn’t miss a beat, either. That’s to be expected, of course: After all, they’re both total pros who have been in this business for decades. It’s no surprise they delivered one of the best halftime shows in recent memory.
Both Shakira and Lopez performed several of their greatest hits, including “She Wolf,” “Whenever, Wherever,” “Jenny From the Block,” “Let’s Get Loud,” and “On the Floor.”
But I’ll stop talking and let the fans tell you how they did. Check out some reactions, below:
Lopez and Shakira released the sweetest statements about each other when it was announced they’d be co-headlining the Super Bowl 2020 halftime show.
“I’m so honored to be taking on one of the world’s biggest stages in the company of a fellow female artist to represent Latinos and Latinas from the U.S. and all over the world—and to top it off, on my birthday. This is a true American dream and we are going to bring the show of a lifetime!” Shakira said, while Lopez added, ““Ever since I saw Diana Ross fly off into the sky at the halftime show, I dreamed of performing at the Super Bowl. And now it’s made even more special not only because it’s the NFL’s 100th anniversary, but also because I am performing with a fellow Latina. I can’t wait to show what us girls can do on the world’s biggest stage.”
This year has already been big for Lopez, who earned Golden Globe and SAG nominations for her performance in the movie Hustlers. Shakira, meanwhile, went on a world tour in 2018 that spanned 54 dates across Europe, Asia, North America, and Latin America.
