It’s almost time for kick-off, and ~~Jenny From the Block~~ J-Lo has something to say to Shakira before they share the stage in their Pepsi Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show performance tonight in Miami, Florida.
But don’t worry, it’s not bad! We just love being dramatic.
“So excited to share the stage with you tonight @shakira!” Lopez said. “Let’s show the world what two little Latin girls can do.” Her post came via Twitter with a photo of them sharing a hug in a seemingly candid moment.
Lopez’ post was accompanied by the hashtags “Let’s Get Loud,” Girl Power,” and “Super Bowl LIV.” It’s already gained over 14,000 likes and 2,300 retweets – pretty good if you ask us! (But on the real, why can’t our tweets get this much press?)
Her February 2nd post is racking up some very sentimental comments as well. “Proud to be Latino,” one user wrote. Another user said they felt like crying because they grew up listening to J-Lo’s music and were feeling so inspired.

Late last week, the two leading ladies spoke in a press conference where they announced that they would pay tribute to late basketball star Kobe Bryant during the big performance.
“Life is so fragile,” Shakira said. “We will all be remembering Kobe on Sunday and we will be celebrating life and celebrating diversity. I’m sure he will be very proud of the message we will be trying to convey on stage.” Her statement echoed that of Lopez, who also spoke of life’s brevity.
“I think it’s affecting everyone so much, because it’s just reminding everyone how fragile life is and how we have to appreciate every single moment,” Lopez said. “We have to love people when they’re here and not wait…it can be taken away from us so easily.” She additionally said that the tribute will be “heartfelt” and will include a nod to Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, who also perished in the January 26th helicopter crash.
Between this “packed” halftime show (as Lopez called it) and Demi Lovato singing the National Anthem, it’s going to be a star-studded night!
