Months of murmurs have finally come to a hush as it’s been officially announced Jennifer Lopez will headline the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show.
The diva – whose rumored involvement with the NFL went into overdrive earlier this year after she fronted a series of ads for the league – has been mum about the topic but never shied away from dishing on her desire to join the ranks of Michael Jackson, Madonna, Beyonce, and more as a performer at the ‘biggest spectacle on Earth.’
Now, it appears she’ll not only get her wish but also get to bring along some company as it’s been confirmed fellow global Latin superstar Shakira is set to rock alongside her on Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium stage!
Via USA Today:
Jennifer Lopez and Shakira are your next Super Bowl halftime show performers!
The singers took to Twitter Thursday to share teasers about their upcoming performance, each sharing a sultry picture of the other, complete with a gold Pepsi cuff on Shakira’s upper arm and a Pepsi ring on Lopez’s finger (the brand sponsors the halftime show), with a gold ring and necklace featuring the date of Super Bowl 54.
“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,” Todd Kaplan, Pepsi’s vice president of marketing, said in a statement to the Associated Press.
Two dynamic performers, the move – albeit surprising – could not be more apt given the event’s location! Further, the spectacle is oft used as a springboard for the announcement of a future endeavor (i.e. tour, album, etc.). Could it be just the vehicle J.Lo needs for her long-awaited next studio effort? Time will tell.
Until then, we can’t wait to see what the diva duo cook up on February 2, 2020. Go Jenny & Shaki!
