Watch Jennifer Lopez and Shakira’s Epic Super Bowl Halftime Show
Both women made history on Sunday night as the first Latinas to lead a Super Bowl half-time performance. They wowed their audience as they gave an epic performance that’s currently the subject of so many tweets.
The Latin superstars took the field at Hard Rock Stadium for a 14-minute spectacular that kicked off with Shakira. Dressed in a sparkly red midriff-baring outfit, Shakira—who celebrated her 43rd birthday today—launched into “She Wolf” followed by “Empire.” After hypnotizing with her belly dancing, she went into “Wherever, Whenever.” As fireworks lit up the night sky, she brought out Bad Bunny for his verse on Cardi B’s “I Like It.”
The Colombian songstress also paid homage to her roots with “Chantaje” before delivering her 2006 smash “Hips Don’t Lie” while crowd surfing. “No fighting,” she said at the end before making way for J.Lo.
They capped it off with a fiery medley of “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)” and “Let’s Get Loud,” complete with tribal dancing and salsa moves, before standing side by side for the triumphant finale as fireworks exploded over the stadium.
“Muchos gracias!” said Shakira, while J.Lo added, “Thank you so much.”
The performance received rave reviews from fans and friends including Lady Gaga, Pink, Kim Kardashian, and Cardi B, who was seen singing along during J.Lo’s performance.
