Jennifer Lopez and Shakira danced up a storm at the Super Bowl 2020 halftime show.
It was the first time the duo teamed up and were both making their debut performances on this stage, which has been a most-watched show highlight for years now.
The two Latino women, who are both over 40, were electrifying as they danced and sang to their own medleys individually and shared the stage towards the end.
Shakira kicked off the halftime show with She Wolf, before playing the guitar for Empire and dancing into Whenever Wherever. She was joined by Bad Bunny for I Like It, and then crowd surfed before dazzling the crowd with her hit single Hips Don’t Lie.
Later, JLo descended onto the stage and started with Jenny From the Block. She even did a pole dancing number for Waiting for Tonight. It certainly looked like she was taking a page from her movie Hustlers.
A really cute moment was when Jennifer’s daughter, Emme, joined her mother on stage while Shakira played the drums. JLo and Shakira then did a mashup of Let’s Get Loud and Shakira’s Waka Waka.
It was a performance that delivered, just as promised. This show is just one we have loved so let’s look at some of past favorites.
Michael Jackson, 1993
It was only in 1991 that the Super Bowl hired pop acts to perform, but it was Michael Jackson in 1993 who set the bar with his act. He moonwalked across the stage during Jam, Billie Jean and Black or White, and later sang We Are the World and Heal The World. His halftime show was one of the most-watched events in American TV history at the time.
Aerosmith, NSYNC, Britney Spears, Nelly, Mary J. Blige, 2001
This show had everything we remember from that millennium — featuring rock, rap and pop sensations of the decade. But we certainly don’t miss those frosted tips and bell-bottoms.
The legendary musician paid homage to the history of halftime shows by enlisting the Florida A&M Marching band. He then sang his own hits Let’s Go Crazy, Proud Mary and We Will Rock You. It was an unforgettable performance, and he danced up a rainstorm, as he performed Purple Rain in the middle of a storm. Bow down!
In 2012, Madonna brought her decades of onstage experience to the Super Bowl stage, arriving on a chariot like a Roman empress, because, um, she’s Madonna.
It was a mini Beyoncé concert that was nothing short of empowering as she brought in an all-female band and dance team. She also reunited with Destiny’s Child to perform Bootylicious, Independent Women and Single Ladies.
