The Super Bowl half time performance on Sunday night from superstars Jennifer Lopez and Shakira were more than spectacular. It was one of the best performances in history.
These two singers sang their biggest hits and together with them, they brought some couple of surprises on stage including Lopez’s daughter,
It started with Shakira singing her “She Wolf” hit in a red dress with her dancers around. It was her hit from 2009. She continued with her next songs that included “Whenever, Wherever” and Empire. All this time, she was dancing to the beat of her songs.
Bad Bunny, a Puerto Rican rapper, performed with Shakira on stage for their version of “I Like It.” She then sang one of her greatest hits, “Hips Don’t Lie,” and she went into the crowd.
Then came Jennifer Lopez clinging into a small building wearing a black leather leotard. She first started with her 2002 hit “Jenny from the Block.” Before that, she shouted, “Hola Miami,” and she added, “We from the Bronx, New York.”
This captivating singer showed her pole dancing moves, and then Colombian singer J. Balvin entered the stage. He did a version “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.” “Let’s Get Loud” was next in line with the young girls wearing a white shirt.
Suddenly, Emme Maribel Muniz went into the limelight on stage and sung next to her mother, Jennifer. Lopez showed her double coat with a Puerto Rican flag in the inside and American Flag on the outside.
Many would have noticed that these performers were singing many Spanish multiple songs. Jennifer is from the Bronx, but her parents were both Puerto Ricans, and Shakira is from Colombia. This duo ended the show with the two of them both on the stage, and the audience was getting wild. They sang the last songs, “ Let’s Get Loud” and “Waka Waka.” Shakira said, “Muchos gracias,” whereas Jennifer added, “Thank you so much.”
Before that, NFL made a press release and announced that this was the first time that two big stars share the stage, and what even makes it more special was -it was also Shakira’s 43rd birthday.
Shortly before they went up on stage, Jennifer posted a photo of the two of them embracing with ta caption “So excited to share the stage with you tonight @Shakira. Let’s show the world what two little Latina girls can do.”
In less than 15 minutes, these performers were able to sing 20 songs, danced gracefully to every beat of the rhythm from belly dancing to pole dance, and Shakira also showed her drum skills. For some apparent reason, their overall performance wasn’t just a collaboration and showing off their artistic talents. It was also about a political moment, especially when Jennifer was performing on stage.
Many are still debating over their performance. Was it too much for the crowd and viewers of the Super Bowl, or was that the right energy and moment during the halftime show? Whatever it is, people can’t stop talking about last night’s performance.
