SUPER BOWL: J-Lo and Shakira Heat Up Halftime
Written by KingCnote on February 3, 2020
This year’s Super Bowl halftime show gave viewers a double dose of girl power – and a powerful hit of Latin culture — thanks to electrifying performances by Shakira and Jennifer Lopez.
Shakira donned an appropriately all-red outfit to open her set with a fiery “She Wolf” – probably the only pop hit in history to use the word “lycanthropy.” The Colombian star showed off her versatility by strapping on an electric guitar for a rock interlude that quoted Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir,” before dropping the instrument for an sultry belly-dance routine that ran through “Wherever, Whenever” and wrapping up with a Bad Bunny-enhanced version of “Hips Don’t Lie.”
Demi Lovato kicked off the festivities earlier in the day by taking the field to sing the national anthem. The comeback-minded singer looked healthy and recharged in a crisp white pantsuit and belted out the song with gusto – and, yes, she clocked in under two minutes — a minute-and-53-seconds to be precise.
