Jennifer Lopez And Shakira Will Co-Headline The 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show

September 26, 2019 / Posted by:

The rumors were half-right! Two weeks ago, there was a rumor that Jennifer Lopez would be the one who would perform while the majority of Super Bowl LIV viewers got up to pee, grab more 7-layer dip, and possibly change into less-restrictive sweatpants. Today Jennifer Lopez announced (possibly through gritted, clenched teeth) that she’d be sharing the stage with Shakira on Super Bowl Sunday.

First JLo and Shakira Shakira teased the news that something Pepsi-themed was going down on February 2, 2020.

Thanks to all that Pepsi logo placement, it was pretty clear that JLo and Shakira weren’t teasing a joint tour called Hips (And Butts) Don’t Lie. Less than half an hour later, JLo and Shakira confirmed the obvious:

Shakira, whose picture looked like an outtake from Jennifer Aniston’s InStyle shoot, wrote:

“It doesn’t get any bigger than this! So excited about getting on that #SuperBowlLIV #PepsiHalftime stage! @JLo #nosvemosMiami #happybirthdaytomeee”

Shakira will turn 43 on February 2. So, happy birthday in advance, Shakira! In the event the Patriots make the finals, I hope someone is able to sneak a cake past security.

Super Bowl LIV is happening in Miami this year, and lots of people predicted JLo would be picked to perform the Halftime show, because JLo’s fiancé A-Rod grew up in Miami, and he and JLo spend lots of time there. JLo’s parents were from Puerto Rico, and the demographics of Miami are about 70% Hispanic. Shakira is from Colombia, but she used to live in Miami. Last year, Shakira was charged with tax evasion, and allegedly owed the tax man $16.3 million. I don’t know how much Pepsi will be tucking into the back pocket of her leather pants, but let’s hope its a lot. And let’s also hope that everyone understands if Shakira doesn’t make a big, showy donation after her performance.

The Super Bowl will happen one week before the 92nd Academy Awards. If JLo really does end up getting an Oscar nomination for Hustlers, then Oscar voting will be closed by the time Super Bowl Sunday rolls around, which is too bad. I would have loved to have seen how many angry letters and phone calls the NFL would have received if JLo spun down onto the stage on a light-up stripper pole to a dirty club remix of the Lombardi Trophy Theme Song.
