Controversy at the 2019 Super Bowl
Last year the NFL had difficulties in alluring top singers to perform at the Half time show. This was because a number of performers, along with Jay-Z, declined as they were supporting Colin Kaepernick. The ex-quarterback of the 49ers could not find any team. Kaepernick was accusing the NFL organizers that they are trying to ban him. In February he and Eric Reid in association with the Carolina Panthers have settled the collusion cases against the N.F.L. for a few million dollars.
The N.F.L. hoped to move ahead and the deal with Jay-Z would ensure that the best performers can be booked for the Super Bowl. It was a huge challenge for the organizers to book a halftime act in 2019, and Maroon 5 and Travis Scott, who were finally chosen to perform got a lukewarm response. This did not go well with the executives at the N.F.L. not long after the Super Bowl spurred, the NFL reached a settlement with Kaepernick and Reid, because of the music community’s rejection of being involved in the league’s biggest event.

Jlo has acted in romantic comedies such as “Maid in Manhattan” and Anaconda, before “Hustlers,”. She was also one of the judges for the “American Idol.”
Connection of Shakira
Shakira who will turn 42, shot to fame with her 2001 hit “whenever wherever” and “underneath your clothes”. The Fans will definitely request her to sing “Hips Don’t Lie” at the Super Bowl Halftime show. The 2009 album “She Wolf,” has managed to reach the Top 10 charts in the US.
Shakira’s star power has somewhat decreased in the United States, so performing at the Super Bowl will be a great opportunity for the pop star to regain her popularity. Lately, the Colombian pop star has been singing Spanish songs than mainstream dance music.
