Super Bowl Halftime Show 2019: Twitter Reacts To Jennifer Lopez

All eyes were on Jennifer Lopez on Sunday as she and Shakira took the field at the center of the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami for the Super Bowl halftime show. It was a triumphant return for Lopez after her Oscar snub, as she proved her vocal and dance talent performing songs from her 21-year-long music career. She showed her range, exploding with Bronx charm as she opened with “Jenny from the Block,” commanding the stage in a perfectly choreographed rendition of “Get Right,” joining Shakira in a salsa number and welcoming her daughter on centerfield for a duet of “Let’s Get Loud” and “Born in the USA”—while donning a cape with both the Puerto Rican and American flags. At other points J Balvin and Bad Bunny took the stage, continuing the celebration of Latinx musicians.

The Lombardi Trophy is up for grabs Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium as the AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs battle the NFC champion San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV.

San Francisco can tie New England and Pittsburgh with an NFL-record six Super Bowl titles if it wins. Kansas City hasn’t been to the Big Game in 50 years since it won Super Bowl IV in 1969.

Andy Reid has a chance to almost assuredly lock up a future Hall of Fame induction with a victory, while his quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, leads the league’s most explosive offense. Will the 49ers’ dominant defense be able to contain or even eliminate Mahomes & Co? It’ll truly be a battle of opposing strengths with KC entering as a 1.5-point favorite.
