The Internet Reacts To Jennifer Lopez And Shakira Being Announced As Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show Performers
Last year the NFL completely botched the Super Bowl halftime show when they booked Maroon 5 in Atlanta out of all places. The odd booking led to the entire world panning the performance.
Today, Pepsi may have righted the ship when they announced that JLO and Shakira were set to spice up the stage at this year’s halftime show at Super Bowl LIV in Miami
Today, Pepsi, the NFL and Roc Nation announced cultural icons Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will perform during the PEPSI SUPER BOWL LIV HALFTIME SHOW on FOX at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla. on Sunday, Feb. 2, 2020. Pepsi and the NFL collaborated with Roc Nation to bring these two icons together for the first time ever, for what will be an unforgettable performance on the world’s biggest stage.

“We are so excited to announce that global superstars Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will take the stage together for the very first time at the Pepsi Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show. We’ve been working closely behind-the-scenes with our longstanding partners at the NFL, and now alongside Roc Nation to bring these mega superstars together. It is a testament to our partnership and commitment to push the envelope of what is possible.”
Todd Kaplan, Vice President, Marketing, Pepsi
“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. 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.”
Most of the Internet seemed to think the pairing was a pretty good idea.
While others seemed to be upset that it J-Lo and Shakira weren’t “Miami” enough to performing.
Haters can hate, J-Lo and Shakira are going to fucking kill it.
