J.Lo And Shakira Light Up The Stadium At The Super Bowl

02/03/2020

The Kansas City Chiefs may have won the Super Bowl, but J.Lo and Shakira set fire to the football field during the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime performance on Sunday night.


Shakira and her fiery dancers kicked off the performance with her single "She Wolf," followed by "Empire," where the Colombia-born diva rocked out on a bedazzled red guitar, driving the crowd wild. Shakira also performed a rendition of Cardi B's "I Like it Like That" and was joined by Bad Bunny, who also features on the 2018 single. 

Perhaps the best moment was at the end of her set, where the singer performed her classic hit, "Hips Don't Lie" and stage dived into the sea of those lucky enough to be nearby.

Right after, J.Lo and her dancers hit the floor with "Jenny From the Block", serving both looks and attitude as the ladies bounded across the stage with leather jackets and fancy footwork. Later on, the Bronx-native put her Hustler moves to use when she performed "Waiting for Tonight" and "Mi Gente," where Latin artist J Balvin took the stage.

Near the end of the heart-pounding performance, J.Lo touched hearts when her daughter Emme and a crew of children joined the superstar on stage. The singer donned a feathery Puerto Rican flag, while Emme belted her mom's hit "Let's Get Loud" along with Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA."

In the end, both Shakira and J.Lo wrapped up the 14-minute performance with Shakira's "Waka Waka."

After the show, Twitter wasted no time tweeting about the performance, with some users praising the Latina divas for delivering an energetic show while being middle-aged.

However, there were those who felt the performance was "inappropriate" for younger audiences, with some users criticizing J.Lo's pole dancing and the skimpy outfits worn by both singers.

Another controversial topic of the evening was the seemingly subtle political statements made during the end of J.Lo's performance, with some users happy that the singer used the show to bring up social issues.

Others, not so much.

Whether you were drooling over both women during the performance or shielding your children's eyes from the erotic dance moves, it's safe to agree that age really is nothing but a number and that their hips definitely do not lie.
