Who Did The Halftime Show 2020: (This Year’s Biggest Super Bowl Halftime Show Moments)As expected, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira brought the house down at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens on Sunday night for their historic Super Bowl 2020 Halftime Show. Bad Bunny and J Balvin made surprise appearances in a raucous, joyful event that Showcased both artists’ huge back catalog of hits.
Set pieces highlighting Puerto Rico’s support for the island, as well as acknowledging the immigration situation, were included in their performances. Ultimately, the Super Bowl LIV halftime show was a brilliant celebration of dance and Latin culture. Here are some of the most memorable moments. (Even Lady Gaga agrees.)
It’s impossible to miss Shakira in Concert: Shakira got the show started with a slew of female dancers under her command and a glistening crimson Peter Dundas gown. There were “Hips Don’t Lie” and “She Wolf,” as well as a few others from her extensive discography. Before she became a pop sensation, she was a rock star who performed explosive guitar solos and crowd-surfed her way through a mosh pit. Horns played and there were salsa dancers. And the crowd went wild when she finished with “Hips Don’t Lie” and the legendary “No fightin’” opener. In addition, she was fun with the camera, which resulted in a meme-worthy scene.)
Bad Bunny is a force to be reckoned with. Bad Bunny, a Puerto Rican rapper, and singer joined Shakira on stage for an exciting cover of Cardi B’s “I Like It” midway through her performance. (Bad Bunny delivers a stanza in Spanish as one of the original featured artists on that song.) On Shakira’s song “Chantaje,” Bunny took Maluma’s place on the Colombian singer’s vocals.
Lopez shines a light on Puerto Rico
“Let’s Get Loud” featured a large flag coat with one side having Puerto Rican flag colors and the other featuring American flag colors. Especially in light of the recent devastating earthquake that struck the region, it was a heartfelt and pointed expression of support. Intensity is raised by addressing the issue of illegal immigration.
The set design included glowing cages that housed kid performers in solidarity with the Latino community and those impacted by anti-immigration legislation. They sang a clip of “Born in the USA” to make their point. As far as I can tell, it all started with ‘Born in the USA’ being in there for a few seconds, and it just naturally evolved.” ‘Let’s just do this in a way that everyone feels that American pride.’ That was our motto while working with Versace and her stylist, Rob [Zangardi]. According to Tabitha Dumo, one of the choreographers who worked with Lopez, Buzzfeed said.
Lopez opened out her halftime show with her popular song “Jenny from the Block,” accompanied by a group of dancers dressed in Versace black leather and dancing wildly in the middle of the stage. It was only when she changed into a glittering bodysuit and belted out “Waiting for Tonight” while pole dancing that the audience was truly impressed. Prior to introducing her daughter and a chorus of female singers at the opening of “Let’s Get Loud,” Lopez sang “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” and “On the Floor.”
Lopez’s daughter has a bright future ahead of her. During the performance of “Let’s Get Loud,” Lopez’s 11-year-old daughter Emme walked out to sing with a chorus of girls for a lovely rendition of the Lopez classic. The camera also zoomed across to Shakira, who was playing the drums during the song.
Finale with “Waka Waka” and Cheer
“Waka Waka” from the 2010 World Cup was reprised for their combined finale, which also featured some cheerleader-style basket tosses. Halftime Show dancers were launched into the air for a dramatic finale that reminded viewers of Netflix’s smash documentary series Cheer. Shimmying in unison was the ultimate show of power for Lopez and Shakira as they wrapped out their set together.
The Two Made History as a Team
Jennifer Lopez and Shakira became America’s most-watched yearly event’s first Latin performers to co-headline alongside a pair of female musicians. During the 1992 and 1999 halftime shows, Gloria Estefan performed and showed her support for Lopez and Shakira, for whom she has written songs. )
Pre-Sunday night news conference: “I think it’s a crucial moment for our community, the Latino population here in this country,” Lopez added. As American as it gets, the Super Bowl is a must-see.” Shakira, who turns 43 on Sunday, continued, “It’ll be a reminder of the heritage of this country, which is one of variety, and that’s what we’ll be celebrating on Sunday.”
Lopez made a point of emphasizing the importance of their performance in an Instagram photo that depicted the two of them hugging only hours before they performed. It’s going to be an honor to perform alongside you tonight, @Shakira! Show the world what two small Latinas can accomplish. Let’s Get Loud #GirlPower #SuperBowlLIV #SBLIV” Following Maroon 5 in 2019, which was marred by controversy surrounding the NFL because of Colin Kaepernick’s situation, they became the next big thing in 2019. The NFL and Jay-Roc Z’s Nation announced a collaboration earlier this year, and the NFL and Shakira were invited to Miami for the celebration.
San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs faced a battle in the NFL’s annual duel in Super Bowl LIV, which the Chiefs won 31-20. On Monday night, Jennifer Lopez shared a video of her rehearsals for the halftime act on Instagram. We shot these moments right before we took the stage last night. “It’s all about how you use your voice,” I tell my daughters. “It’s all about being proud of who you are.” We take pride in the fact that we are all part of what makes this wonderful country so amazing.
Demi Delivers a Fantastic Rendition of the National Anthem
Demi Lovato sang her way into the spotlight at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards a week ago with a strong performance of her latest single, “Anyone,” on a star-studded night that wasn’t necessarily about her. In terms of encores, it’s impossible to match her performance of the national anthem at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, during Super Bowl LIV last year.
As a child star on “Barney & Friends” in 2002, she rose to stardom alongside the Jonas Brothers in Disney’s “Camp Rock” movie, and now she’s back in the spotlight as an adult. Wearing an all-white ensemble, Lovato showed off her vocal prowess but kept the focus on the anthem by opting for a more subdued performance that nevertheless demonstrated her talents while keeping the accent on the song. Gospel superstar Yolanda Adams, who won Grammys for both her singing and her songwriting, sang a passionate rendition of “America the Beautiful” that had a children’s chorus backing her up and changed the song’s structure entirely.
On “Mi Gente,” J Balvin makes an appearance: For a cameo appearance in Lopez’s act, Colombian reggaeton artist J Balvin performed his smash song “Mi Gente” Lopez previously accompanied Beyoncé on a 2017 remix of Mi Gente’s hit single “Mi Gente.” Latin solidarity is at the heart of “Mi Gente,” making it the perfect song to play during halftime.
