    I'm really in awe of this production...I wonder how this could be topped.
    Very easy, they should just call Beyoncé.

      Nah, people begin to see through her narcissism. She's a great performer but she's stuck in the same thing for years now. She had her moment.

      • Jennifer can easily have another successful tour under her belt, the It's My Party Tour success proved that she doesn't need hits to sell out arenas, and for veteran acts touring is the way to make money nowadays, she will be fine.

        • Maybe Jennifer can take it to stadiums now, she would kill a stadium show with a huge production.

          • Bad Bunny might have been the worst Super Bowl guest ever tho. There’s no reason why the good sis couldn’t swap him and that tragic Cardi Z song out for La Tortura featuring Alejandro Sanz.

              Yes and No ... I mean he's quite bad BUT he's one of the ultimate musical leaders of Latin America at the moment, the guy is just HUGE over here and everyone is obsessed with him. So technically he was the most perfect guest she could have if she wanted to make a big Latino revolution and statement with J.Lo and J.Balvin in the mix. Both J.Lo and Shakira literally picked the two "It" and biggest boys of Latin America (Bad Bunny and J.Balvin) that's just pure strategy, both wanted someone really relevant and trendy who could get many people outside of their own fanbases watching and talking. Alejandro is an hispanic legend but he's pretty much a hasbeen by now and Pitbull is basically fallen from grace at the moment (this is why neither Shakira or J.Lo invited them), they're not in conditions to generate further buzz and aren't cool with the newer generations either. J.Lo and Shaki are big media stars and getting Bad Bunny and J.Balvin only made things more exciting for the current latin audience.

              • Shakira really owned the stage. Such presence. Her songs are iconic. JLo seemed like she was just posing.

                    • I'm really pleased the girls have done so well on this, they have never been critical darlings, J-Lo especially has been ridiculed as a singer over the years, but both girls have had a string of worldwide hits and both showed girls half their age how it's done.

                        At least Europe still supports her. 'Ain't Your Mother' did quite well all things considered. But then again... Those women still look incredible, so it would be a crime to use their age against them. I mean, who would seriously guess J.Lo to be 50 if we didn't know?

                          Tell them to radios. It's a shame they never give the sogs a chance.

                                  • This absolutely ludicrous story had me LOLing this morning:

                                    ​​​​​​
                                    Christian activist wants to sue NFL for Super Bowl halftime show
                                    A Christian activist has threatened to sue the NFL for US$867 trillion because the Super Bowl halftime put his soul “in danger of hellfire”.
                                    Link to full story but here are some gems in this section:

                                    “I think we ought to sue,” said Daubenmire on his Pass the Salt podcast.

                                    “Would that have been rated PG? Were there any warnings that your 12-year-old son — whose hormones are just starting to operate — was there any warning that what he was going to see might cause him to get sexually excited?

                                    “Could I go into a courtroom and say, ‘Viewing what you put on that screen put me in danger of hellfire’?

                                    “You didn’t tell me I was going to watch it! You just brought it into my living room.”

                                    Daubenmire considered the halftime performance “discriminatory” towards Christians.

                                    “You didn’t tell me there were going to be crotch shots. That’s discriminatory against the value I have in my house. You can’t just do that,” he said.

                                    “I want to sue them for about $867 trillion.”
                                    Surely this is not going to be entertained in court? Like seriously haha. Theres a funny Reddit thread about it too.

                                        Well, surely you must agree that that’s a small price to pay for condemning someone to an eternity in hell.
                                        Not sure how even such an outrageous amount of money would give him solace, though. Hell will still be waiting for him. Or does he plan to donate it to secure himself a ticket to heaven? That almost makes sense, now that I think about it.

                                        What I can’t get over is that with the “standards he has in his house” he still owns a TV.
                                        Poor guy must be preparing lawsuits left, right and center, 24/7. For your own sake, switch the damn thing off, pal. You’ll be safer that way. That is, until you leave the house.

                                                    Live bits and pieces just like Shakira. Which is what I said in the first place (maybe I overestimated with 95%, but the fact stands). It doesn't take away from the fact they put on a great show in no way, as lipsyncing is still a standard for performances like this due to very short preparation time on the spot and not having proper time to do the necessary sound checks as they can't leave the sound system and the stage in place because they obviously need the field for the game. And not every stadium is good for live acoustics. All this has been explained in many articles throughout the years.

                                                    But if some people want to pretend like the show was live and act like they know better and sit on a high horse as if they knew better, that's on them.

                                                              Me too, always prefer live.
