Jennifer Lopez & Shakira Headline The Super Bowl Halftime Show


While most people who tuned into the Super Bowl did so for the game, there were plenty of people who were only interested in the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show, and they certainly got an exciting one this year, filled with a lot of dancing, hip shaking and more.

This year’s show was headlined by Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, and featured guest appearances by J. Balvin, Bad Bunny and J.Lo’s daughter Emme.

The show opened with Shakira surrounded by a group of dancers in red performing a medley that included “She Wolf,” followed by “Empire,” featuring a sample of Led Zepplin’s “Kashmir,” “Whenever, Wherever,” and “I Like It Like That,” and “Chantaje,” which featured Bad Bunny. Shakira’s set ended crowd surfing to “Hips Don’t Lie." And Shakira certainly didn't just sing, dancing throughtout the performance, taking off different pieces of clothing as it went on.

Then it was J.Lo’s turn to take over, kicking things off with “Jenny From the Block,” “I’m Real,” "Ain't It Funny," and “Get Right.” Each number featured bigger and better dance routines, and she was even able to fit in a quick costume change from her black leather outfit, into a see-through mirrored unitard. She also showed off the pole dancing skills she learned for “Hustler," during a performance of "Waiting For Tonight," which was followed by “Que Calor" and "Mi Gente" featuring J. Balvin, with a bit of “My Love Don’t Cost a Thing" mixed in.

Then it was time for J.Lo and Shakira to come together. After a dance number to “On The Floor,” J.Lo brought out her daughter Emme and a group of young dancers for a slow version of “Let’s Get Loud,” with Shakira on drums. J.Lo then walked back out draped in a furry cape that had one side with the American flag and the other with the Puerto Rican flag, and she and Emme broke into a bit of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.”

The whole thing ended with J.Lo and Shakira teaming for a mix of “Let’s Get Loud,” and “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)” which had them dancing together surrounded by tons of dancers.

As for their outfits, Entertainment Tonight reports between J.Lo and Shakira they had a combined total of eight costume changes, with J.Lo's mirrored bodysuit and her biker body suit designed by Versace. Meanwhile, Shakira's red outfit was created by Peter Dundas. She also wore red boots by Dan Life adorned with 30,000 crystals. They reportedly took "10 full days" to make.
