“Hello Miami!” Exclaimed singer Shakira, as soon as she started her show in the long-awaited part-time Super Bowl. The trumpets and drums began to sound, while the hips of the Colombian artist delighted those present.

Shortly thereafter, the Puerto Rican Jennifer Lopez, who, along with Shakira, were the main protagonists of the 54th edition of the biggest American football game.

Since it was learned that both Latinas would be the stars of this popular event, it was pointed out that it would be the most Latin final in history.

And this Sunday confirmed what was predicted.

The two consecrated musical artists were cheered at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, after a show in which both exploited several of their most recognized successes.

The halftime show of the decisive match of the National Football League (NFL) is one of the most anticipated moments of the season and in the sports world.

Years before the Colombian and Puerto Rican, that event was starred by stars like Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake or Lady Gaga.

This time, in just over 14 minutes the presentation was first directed by Shakira and then by Jennifer Lopez. In the last minutes, the singers appeared together, sharing choirs of their songs before thousands of fans filming the show with their mobile phones.

Shakira, dressed in a bright red suit, began her show by singing “Loba.” Then, he sang and danced other of his best compilations like “Eyes like this,” “Luck” and “Blackmail”, for which even the singer Bad Bunny joined him.

When the audience was practically surrendered at their feet, the Colombian surprised to interpret “Hips Don’t Lie” and “Waka-Waka”, accompanied by her classic belly movements that were widely acclaimed by those present.

“Pole Dance” and “political” messages on the Jennifer Lopez show

When almost 7 minutes had elapsed since Shakira’s presentation, Jennifer Lopez stormed the stage with her acclaimed song “Jenny from the Block.”

In a tight black leather suit, and climbed on top of a bar, the Puerto Rican interpreter surprised with her “pole dance” movements she learned during her performance in the movie “Hustlers.”

“Waiting for tonight”, “On the floor” and “Ain’t It Funny” were some of the other songs that Lopez sang and danced during his show. The appearance of Colombian singer J Balvin, who sang “what a heat” along with Jennifer Lopez, also caused a furor.

But perhaps the most commented (and “political”) moment of his presentation was when Lopez appeared with his daughter, Emme Maribel Muñiz, 11, with whom he sang a verse from Bruce Springsteen’s Born In The USA, while wrapping up on a feather flag that was from the USA on the outside and Puerto Rican on the inside.

According to various commentators, such as Jon Pareles of The New York Times, this was a nod of recognition to both Puerto Rico and the “Dreamers,” the children of undocumented immigrants born in the US.

“While Emme sang, other children danced in cage-shaped structures, a subtle reference, but a possible nod to the thousands of children, most of the Latin American countries, who have been arrested at the southern border,” he wrote Erin Vanderhoof this Sunday at Vanity Fair.

At the end of the presentation, the closing themes of the curtain – interpreted by Shakira and Jennifer López as a duo – were “Waka-Waka”, from the Barranquilla, and “Let’s get loud”, from the Puerto Rican.

Both finished with their best dance steps, mixing various musical styles, including salsa, with dancers who even gave pirouettes in the air.
