Best Super Bowl Halftime Show Ever? Shakira and J-Lo Have Fans Raving After Sunday Performance

The halftime show at the Miami Super Bowl on Sunday night had social media buzzing, and apparently for good reason. The musical performances by Shakira, followed by Jennifer Lopez, had social media twirling as the big game entered the second half.

Though some expected special appearances by perhaps Miami legends Gloria Estafan of the Miami Sound Machine, and another from 305's Pit Bull, it was all Shakira and J-Lo—and their South Florida bottom shaking—that made the Super Bowl LIV halftime show overtake all other Super Bowl trends on Twitter.

And no special appearances were needed.

The halftime show Sunday night had all the flair of a South Beach party, and it was as South Florida as South Florida can get.

Shakira first took the stage and belted out tunes while dancers took the stage. She then transitioned to Lopez, who sang her own tunes. The two superstars then joined forces onstage for a singing and dancing display that had social media clamoring for more.

Some called it the best halftime show they had ever seen. That's saying a lot, considering Miami hosted a Super Bowl—13 years ago—when Prince was the performer at halftime, even playing Purple Rain while rain fell inside the stadium.

Here are comments and videos of Shakira and J-Lo at Sunday night's halftime in Miami.

Jennifer Lopez and Shakira made history as the first two Latinas to lead a #SuperBowl halftime performance. What'd you think of the show?
