Jennifer Lopez, Shakira ready to bring the heat to Super Bowl 2020 halftime show
Jennifer Lopez and Shakira shared the stage in Miami to talk about their upcoming Super Bowl halftime performance and how they hope it opens doors for different types of people.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Music superstars Jennifer Lopez and Shakira took the stage in Miami on Thursday to talk about how they're going to bring the heat to the Super Bowl 2020 halftime show as the San Francisco 49ers take on the Kansas City Chiefs.

Without giving anything away, J.Lo described the show as "very Shakira and very Jennifer."

"That's what you're going to get from the performance. It's a lot of energy, it's very entertaining. There's heartfelt moments. I think we run the gamut. It's packed with a lot of awesome moments," she said.

Shakira says that, while the two shows are very different, they compliment each other.

When asked what young people around the world can take away from this history-making performance, J.Lo responded, "This Super Bowl... the two teams that are playing, the Chiefs and the 49ers, are run by women. And then you got two women headlining the halftime show. That statement alone for me is empowering, when I think of my daughter, when I think of all the little girls of the world to be able to have that, to see that... two Latinas doing this in this country at this time... it's just very empowering for us. I'm very proud to be able to help set and push forth that message."

Both she and Shakira talked about how they hope their performance opens doors for different types of people.

"Women, Latinas, and people of any ages," said Shakira. "I think that J.Lo and I are here redefining paradigms about age about race, about background. It doesn't really matter where you're from."

And while they talked about all the fun, J.Lo and Shakira also took time out to talk about Kobe Bryant's death. J.Lo said Bryant's death reminds people how fragile life is.

Her main message was to love people now while they are here.
