The Super Bowl LIV halftime show promises more songs than ever, more dancers on stage than ever, and a tribute to Kobe Bryant.
During a Miami press conference Thursday — Jennifer Lopez and Shakira their upcoming performance, with Lopez stating there will be a “heartfelt” moment when someone asked whether she would be honoring Kobe Bryant.
“We’ll all be remembering Kobe on Sunday and celebrating life and diversity in this country,” Shakira added. “I’m sure he’d be very proud to see the message we are trying to convey on stage that day.”
“When we did the first run-through, Shakira was like, ‘That was great.’ It’s different what we do,” Lopez said of their individual styles. “It’s very Shakira and very Jennifer.”
“Two Latinas doing this in this country at this time is very empowering for us,” she explained.
Kobe, his daughter, and seven others tragically perished on Sunday after a horrific helicopter crash.
The NTSB has since recovered all nine bodies and are currently trying to piece together what happened on that doomed flight that led to this tragedy.
