I know the phrase THIS IS NOT A DRILL is kind of tired these days, and yet. THIS IS NOT A DRILL! The Super Bowl half-time show artist has been announced, and actually there are two of them: Jennifer Lopez and Shakira.
The co-headliners dropped the news on social media, natch. About 30 minutes before the big news, Shakira tweeted out a photo of J.Lo from the lips down, wearing a Pepsi ring. You know it’s Jennifer because of the bicep (and the rumors that this was going down).

Simultaneously, Jennifer posted a pic of Shakira. You know it’s her because of the abundant hair.

Then, they finally just let fans have it by posting a super glam photo together, with faces and everything. The two Latina pop stars, true pioneers since they smashed onto the scene two decades ago, will take the stage on February 2, 2020 (or 02-02-2020, which is just plain cool).
“The Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show has become one of the most iconic and anticipated music performances of the year, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome Jennifer Lopez and Shakira to the stage,” said Todd Kaplan, the vice president of marketing for Pepsi: “These two remarkable artists are setting a new precedent for what this show can become, and we’re confident that this will be an incredible performance for the ages.”
J.Lo is having a pretty great few months: She’s got Oscar buzz going for the movie Hustlers, in which she plays a scamming stripper who happens to also be a loving friend. She just turned 50, and she just got engaged to Alex Rodriguez. How does her career just get better and better?!
Super Bowl is already a pretty thrilling time for us at Delish—maybe you’ve seen our epic stadium made of food for a Super Bowl party, which you can recreate? Or the umpteen number of dips and dishes we have for the big night? Truly, the only thing that could improve this holiday for us is Jenny from the block and Shakira. Counting the days!
