Get ready for a legendary Super Bowl halftime next year, as Shakira and Jennifer Lopez gear up to headline the coveted event in 2020. Finally.
The wait is over
Following weeks of speculation, on Thursday the two superstars were confirmed to make their stelar joint appearance by the National Football League, specifying that they will be sharing the stage at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, on February 2.
Additionally, both Shakira and J.Lo took to Twitter at the same time to show the world they’re now working with each other, sharing a photo of their respective counterpart with the texts “This is happening. 02.02.20” and “Get ready 02.02.20.” Good times.
A show for the ages
This is an exciting pairing, since Shakira and J.Lo are two of the most iconic, recognizable, and beloved Latin singers in the world, which makes it odd that they haven’t really worked together before.
At any rate, fans are excited, and who could blame them? Here you have these two amazing singers and dancers who are well-known to put up great shows, so the combination is set to give us one of the most spectacular halftime shows in the history of the Super Bowl—not to over-hype it or anything.
But hey, even Pepsi’s vice president of marketing, Todd Kaplan, can’t but fuel expectations. In a statement to the Associated Press, he said: “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.” Is he overselling it? Let’s just say his claims are far from unlikely.
So, with the perfect couple of singers confirmed, we can all actually look forward to next year’s Super Bowl halftime show. And even if it’s not a show for the gods, it can surely do no worse than Adam Levine’s disappointing performance this year. Yep, still not over that one.
