Each artist performed a medley of their biggest hits, while the former invited special guest Bad Bunny and the latter invited J Balvin. The two superstars closed off their energetic set by joining forces on Lopez’s “Let’s Get Loud” and Shakira’s World Cup anthem “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).”
To date, their memorable performance is the most-watched halftime show on the NFL’s official YouTube channel, boasting more than 300 million views.
But the Colombian and Puerto Rican acts were not the only Latin artists to grace the coveted stage; in fact, Gloria Estefan took center stage at two halftime shows. First in 1992 at Minneapolis and at New York City in 1999, where she performed alongside Stevie Wonder.
The following year, Spanish crooner Enrique Iglesias (known for countless Latin hits) joined the stage with Phil Collins, Toni Braxton and Ecuadorian-American artist Christina Aguilera at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
This weekend, Billboard’s latest cover star, Usher, will headline the Super Bowl LVIII halftime show. The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers will face off in this year’s Super Bowl, which will be held on Sunday at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
Though numerous global acts have performed at the renowned football event, including Michael Jackson, Madonna, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, The Weeknd and Rihanna, we would love to see more Latin representation.
