After rumors started swirling earlier this month that Jennifer Lopez would be this year’s Super Bowl halftime performer, the superstar took to Twitter on Thursday (Sept. 26) to confirm: “It’s happening.”
But she’s not going it alone: Fellow Latin music powerhouse Shakira will also be performing.
J.Lo’s tweet simply has the “It’s happening.” caption, plus the date of the 2020 Super Bowl, alongside a photo of Shakira wearing a gold Pepsi bicep cuff (shouting out the halftime show’s sponsor) and a massive two-finger ring with the 02.02.2020 date. Shakira, meanwhile, posted a photo of Lopez wearing a Pepsi ring and belt buckle in her “Get ready” tweet.

Super Bowl LIV will take place at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium.
Previously, the only Latin performers to take the Super Bowl haltime stage are Gloria Estefan (in 1992 and 1999 and as part of Miami Sound Machine in 1995) and Enrique Iglesias alongside a slew of other artists in 2000.
