Jennifer Lopez and Shakira bedazzle the Super Bowl Halftime. This is the first Super Bowl Halftime show where all artists are Latin! It looks like America is becoming more inclusive.”Being at the Super Bowl is very symbolic in a way, and I feel we have a great responsibility with the Latinos around the world,” Shakira said in an interview.
JLo and Shakira graced the Halftime platform with energy and pop. The duo showed the world what two Latin Girls can do, Crowd surfing , Knee gliding, Belly Dancing and even play drums! They performed their energetic piece , bolting through 20 songs in just 12 minutes.
“Hola Miami” shouted Shakira as she opened the set with the disco strut of “She Wolf” before segueing to the grungy rock of Empire, and throwing in a few bars of Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir as she pulled out a black sequinned guitar.
The 43 year old, who celebrated her birthday yesterday , sang her biggest hit “Hips don’t Lie” while crowd surfing and she looked like she was having a blast! She also called on Puerto Rican Bad Bunny to perform a duet on the cover of Cardi B’s “I Like It”.
JLo got political in her performance as she graced the stage , draped in a Puerto Rican flag. This was a statement against the Trump administration who refused funds to Puerto Rico. She was joined by her 11 year old daughter , Emme Marible on stage who sang “Let’s Get Loud”.
Shakira said in a pre game interview that “ This year’s Halftime show is an all inclusive party”. They performed together for the finale which ironically was “Waka Waka” that was the official song of a completely different sport event in 2010!
