In the musical entertainment industry, few entertainment opportunities top the coveted slot of the Super Bowl Halftime Show. Artists from Prince to Katy Perry to Janet and Michael Jackson have all dominated massive football stadiums for what was likely the most highly anticipated fifteen minutes of their musical careers. The Super Bowl is an event watched by a very large, and more notably, very diverse portion of America. One of the negative sides to performing at the Super Bowl compared to a special ticketed concert is that it’s truly impossible for any musician to please the entire audience. This year, the Halftime slot was filled by Shakira and Jennifer Lopez, who chose to direct their performance towards empowering women and increasing visibility for Latin America. The high energy performance featured traditional Latin American dance moves, children in light up cages, a large feather cape with Puerto Rico’s flag on one side and America’s on the other, and Shakira playing the drums (that had not a lot to do with representation I just thought it was awesome).
