Jennifer Lopez & Shakira To Headline 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show
Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will officially be headlining the Super Bowl halftime show.
This is the time of year where we all get excited about football, but it's also the Super Bowl halftime show. It's always a guessing game on who will be the next performer for the big game.
After being rumored that Jennifer Lopez was going to do the halftime show, now it's finally confirmed by J-Lo herself that she will be there. Of course, she won't be there to just watch the football game, but she'll be there to get the party going.
The Super Bowl will take place on February 2 at Miami's Hard Rock Stadium.
Of course, you shouldn't think that the Queen of the Bronx is coming alone. J-Lo confirmed that she'll be joined on stage by Shakira.
Justin Timberlake, Maroon 5, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga have all performed at the Super Bowl halftime show in recent years.
This will be the first time the halftime show is taken over by two Latina performers and it's actually first time Jennifer Lopez will be stepping on that stage. The last Hispanic female artist to take on that stage was Gloria Estefan in 1999 (alongside Stevie Wonder and others).
The NFL confirmed the news of J-Lo's performance in a statement as well on Thursday:
"Throughout the years, Pepsi has had a strong heritage in music, working with a range of artists from Britney Spears to Ray Charles to Beyoncé. The Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show has become one of the most iconic and anticipated music performances of the year, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome Jennifer Lopez and Shakira to the stage," Todd Kaplan, Pepsi's VP of Marketing said in a statement. "These two remarkable artists are setting a new precedent for what this show can become, and we’re confident that this will be an incredible performance for the ages."
