Everything we loved about JLo and Shakira’s halftime show, and 1 thing we completely missed

Shakira and Jennifer Lopez rocked the Hard Rock Stadium during Super Bowl LIV, but somehow we missed that tribute to Kobe.

It’s hard to put into words the incredible performances by Shakira and Jennifer Lopez during halftime of the Super Bowl between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs. The choreography, athleticism and power of these two strong women, ages 43 and 50 respectively, needs to be seen to be appreciated.ut SB Nation’s James Dator gave it his best effort:

“A solid 30 minutes of non-stop dancing by the duo, complete with high kicks, jumps, slides, dives, climbs and more verbs than I can’t even think of at the moment. In short: They were absolutely amazing.

“It ruled.”

Also during their halftime show was a much-promised remembrance of Kobe Bryant, which took place when Jennifer Lopez’s 11-year-old daughter, Emme, along with a children’s choir, joined her on stage to sing “Let’s Get Loud.”

It happened, but many viewers complained on social media that they didn’t see it.

According to CNN and The Hollywood Reporter, a camera briefly showed an overhead shot of the field revealing a giant cross, which lit up in Lakers purple and yellow. That was it. WUSA-TV reports you can see it for yourself at the 11:54 mark on the NFL YouTube video.
