In 2020, the singers Shakira and Jennifer López took advantage of the Super Bowl platform to give a show full of flavor, rhythm and a lot of Latin pride. Although it was an incredible show and much talked about for female empowerment, it was not very easy for the well-known “Diva of the Bronx” to have to share the stage with the Colombian.
It was through the documentary “Halfttime” that López showed the world her discomfort with the decision made by the senior executives of the National Football League to share such a big moment with another artist.
“We have six minutes, 30 seconds of each song and if we take one minute, that’s it, we only have five left. We have to have our moment. It’s not going to be a damn dance magazine. Having two people perform at the Super Bowl is the worst idea in the world and it was,” said the “On the Floor” singer.
However, in the documentary the artist stated that her annoyance was not for having to share the stage with a star of Shakira’s stature, but for the simple decision of having two and not one singer, as had been the performances of Madonna, Beyonce , Katy Perry, Prince, among others.
In the clip revealed on the Netflix platform Jennifer shared moments prior to Halftime such as rehearsals, training, costume selection, repertoire selection and the multiple calls with Shakira.
The 2020 show took place at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, and also featured special performances by J Balvin and Bad Bunny.
