Jennifer Lopez & Shakira joined forces to rock the Halftime Show for this year’s Super Bowl game. JLo brought her daughter Emme Muniz out to make a political statement and Shakira brought her truth telling hips. See their performance inside…

The biggest night in football went down last night!

Super Bowl LIV was held inside the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami to determine the best NFL team of the season. The San Francisco 49ers took a huge L to the Kansas City Chiefs after an intense game. By the fourth quarter, it appeared the 49ers would become our champions this year, but the Chiefs stepped their game up, came back and took home the win.

The Halftime Show is just as big as the game and this year’s performers were Jennifer Lopez and Shakira. And they brought the Latina superwoman heat.

The 50-year-old entertainer made sure to spice things up, hitting the stripper pole to show off the moves she learned for her role in HUSTLERS.

JLo also added in a politically charged with featuring her 11-year-old daughter Emme Muniz. Kicking off the powerful set, Emme appeared in a lit up cage along with several other kids, taking a political stand against Trump’s immigration policy where children are ripped from their parents and detained after attempting to cross the southern border illegally.

Following in the footsteps of her mother, Emme began singing her mom’s track “Let’s Get Loud” before JLo appeared in a massive Puerto Rican/American flag coat before performing “Born in the USA.” The lighting behind them appeared to reflect a wire fence.

 

 

 

The kids in cages dressed in all white (people wore all white during the immigration protests), the lighted “fence” along with the Puerto Rican and American flag while singing “Born int the USA” was a political protest against the government’s treatment of immigrants and Puerto Rico.

Last night's performance was extra special for Shakira as it was her 43-year-old birthday and chick still doesn't looka day over 25. Her hips either.

The Colombian singer (who is of Colombian and Lebanese ancestry and always acknowledges her African roots) hips told no lies and she had a team of baddies behind her. And made sure to be inclusive when it came to showing Afro Latinas and various complexions.

She brought out artists Bad Bunny (from Puerto Rico) and J Balvi (from Colombia) to share some love.

There were reports that JLo & Shakira would pay tribute to NBA icon Kobe Bryant.  The tribute happened so quickly, fans missed it and were pissed about it. According to CNN, the Kobe tribute took place when JLo's daughter Emme hit the stage to sing "Let's Get Loud" with a children's choir.

An overhead shot of the field showed a giant cross, which lit up in purple and yellow, the colors of the Los Angeles Lakers for whom Bryant played for from 1996 until his retirement in 2016.

The players also paid tribute to Kobe before the big game:

Before the game between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers began, there was also a moment to honor those who died in the helicopter crash. Players lined up at the 24-yard-line for a moment of silence. Bryant wore the number 24 when he played for the Lakers.

 

Peep their full performance:

Of course, JLo's beau Alex Rodriguez was cheering her on:

 

 

As previously reported, Jay-Z's deal with the NFL allowed him to be a co-producer of the Super Bowl Halftime Show.

Record exec/manager Scooter Braun thanked Jay-Z and the NFL for allowing singer Demi Lovato to sing the National Anthem at this year's Super Bowl.
