Shakira and Jennifer Lopez have separately released a number of chart-topping hits that dominated both the pop and Latin charts in the last two decades. Seizing their opportunity to make a cultural statement, Lopez and Shakira infused their Super Bowl halftime show with an exuberance and joy that celebrated their Latina heritage.
Shakira wooed the audience by grooving to her iconic song "Hips don't lie".
At the halftime show of Super Bowl in Miami, Shakira celebrated her 43rd birthday by bellydancing on stage and performing her signature step of "Hips don't lie". She performed on the stage for six minutes, opening the set with "She Wolf" before inviting Puerto Rican singer Bad Bunny for a duet on a cover of Cardi B's "I like it". Shakira concluded the show with her most famous track, "Hips don't lie".
Meanwhile, Lopez, in a black leather outfit that her dancers matched, started with a nostalgic snippet of “Jenny From the Block.” She exhibited some startling pole-dancing moves, a reference to her much-celebrated turn in the movie “Hustlers.” At one point she bent into a deep squat while standing on the shoulders of a dancer that likely had muscles aching across the country in sympathy.
Seeing Shakira and Lopez's performance, social media users praised them a lot. Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan also shared a picture of Shakira from her Super Bowl performance. He also said on Twitter that Shakira was his all time favourite. He wrote, "So wonderful, so hard working so absolutely entertaining. My all time favourite."
