Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will hustle for football fans at this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show. The singers shared the news on Twitter, with the NFL confirming the news shortly after.
The annual NFL championship game hits Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium on Feb. 2, 2020. Her performance would follow a string of high-profile pop artists in recent years, including Maroon 5, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and more.
Having never performed at the annual show before, hype surrounding the singer to take the stage was strong with fans campaigning for a J-Lo Super Bowl.
When asked whether she would be likely to take the Miami stage come February, Lopez coyly responded to Entertainment Tonight in July: “Yeah, I’ve thought about the Super Bowl and it’s in Miami. It’s a big deal, but we’ll see. They make their own decisions over there.”
Adding more fire to the rumors, Lopez recently shared a video on Instagram, promoting the kickoff of NFL’s new season. “Football is finally back, and this season is special,” she said in the video. “One hundred years of the game we all love, filled with images to remember forever. And now it’s time for the next story to be written. The 100th chapter.”
