Shakira and Jennifer Lopez scored the biggest touchdown of Super Bowl Sunday with their mesmerizing halftime performances. The hips definitely didn’t lie as the two singers turned the halftime show into their own mini concert that included guest performers Bad Bunny and J Balvin. Shakira and Jennifer Lopez reminded people why they're two of the greatest modern day performers. Their talents reach further than singing and dancing, as they both had memorable performances in movies.
Jennifer Lopez splits her time between making music, producing movies and shows, and acting. Her movie career has been going strong since it started in 1995 and propelled with her starring role in 1997’s Selena. The “Let’s Get Loud” singer even received a lot of Oscar buzz for her supporting actress performance in Hustlers. Unfortunately, the Academy decided not to grant Jennifer Lopez her first Oscar nomination, but at the Super Bowl, Lopez showed them that she deserved a nomination for core strength in addition to her acting.
While better known for her music, Shakira is also no stranger to the world of film and television. She made brief guest appearances as herself in Ugly Betty and Wizards of Waverly Place.
