Five months after the 2020 SuperBowl, singers J Lo and Shakira's halftime show has garnered 4 Emmy Award nominations.

On February 2, 2020, singers Jennifer Lopez and Shakira took to the stage at the Hard Rock Stadium in Florida during the halftime for the 2020 Super Bowl and delivered a joint sizzling performance that dazzled audiences.

Now, 5 months after that memorable night, it has been announced that the show by the red hot Latinas has been nominated for no fewer than 4 Emmy Awards.

Shakira and J Lo's exuberant styles and dynamic physical performances were a tribute to their cultures and meshed perfectly to deliver a show that set a new standard and will be a hard act to follow

A WINNING PERFORMANCE

On the field, the Kansas City Chiefs scored a historic victory, taking home the Vince Lombardi Trophy, their first win in 50 years, and it looks like J Lo and Shakira's half time show might be taking home a few of the coveted winged Emmy trophy too.

The 2020 Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show has been nominated for Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special, Outstanding Lighting Design/Lighting Direction For A Variety Special, Outstanding Music Direction, and Outstanding Variety Special (Live).

The show was widely considered one of the best ever, with both women delivering heart-stopping performances-of-a lifetime. J Lo and Shakira rocked the stadium, and the thousands upon thousands of rave reviews by fans and celebrities flooded social media, including Lady Gaga who had delivered a brilliant performance of her own at the 2017 Super Bowl.

This was a marked contrast to the aftermath of the 2019 Super Bowl half time show, during which Maroon 5 delivered what was universally considered a disappointing, lukewarm performance, lacking energy and failing to ignite the live audience, let alone the over 100 million TV viewers.

Lopez had admitted that she had dreamed of doing the Super Bowl half time show for years, and was in tears after her performance, and her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez commented on the impact Shakira and J Lo had had on the Latino community. He said:

"With 60 million Latinos in the United States, it's amazing. Representing all the Latino women, it's really empowering... it's about equality." 

The two amazing ladies ruled the night, and may well rule the Emmys. The only way Super Bowl organizers are going to top the 2020 show, is by bringing back the Latina dynamos...or resurrecting Elvis.
