The Super Bowl halftime show is the grandest stage for any performer. Not only do they have tens of thousands of people watching their every move in person, but they are also being broadcast to a worldwide audience of more than 100 million people.
Over the years, we have seen great and not-so-great performances on this stage, but we should be in for the former this year as Shakira and Jennifer Lopez will be sharing the spotlight for Super Bowl 54. You can bet on which songs each artist will perform and what we will see in Miami on Super Bowl Sunday.
Super Bowl prop bets 2020: Halftime show
Will either Jennifer Lopez or Shakira first address the audience in Spanish?
This is an interesting prop. Both artists are bilingual, and both Lopez and Shakira are certain to speak Spanish at some point during their sets since they are in Miami. However, it seems likely that both artists will first address the crowd in English before switching to Spanish at some point. Since the Super Bowl is predominately attended by English-only speakers, it would be quite a twist to see either artist flip the script, so the ‘No’ is a solid bet.
Which Jennifer Lopez song will be performed first?
Let’s Get Loud +300
Jenny from the Block +500
Live It Up +500
On the Floor +500
El Anillo +700
Waiting for Tonight +800
If You Had My Love +900
Get Right +1000
Love Don’t Cost a Thing +1200
Which Shakira song will be performed first?
Whenever, Wherever +250
Dare (La La La) +300
La Tortura +400
Can’t Remember to Forget You +500
Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) +600
Beautiful Liar +1000
She Wolf +1200
La Bicicleta +1500
Si Te Vas +2000
There is no reason to bet two of the five favorites on this list. Dare and Waka Waka were Shakira’s World Cup songs, and it’s very unlikely that she uses them for the Super Bowl. It wouldn’t make sense to use those two songs since they are tied to soccer, so take a look at the additional value in longshots like Beautiful Liar and She Wolf.
Which song will close out the halftime show?
Live It Up +200
Whenever, Wherever +250
Can’t Remember to Forget You +350
Let’s Get Loud +500
On the Floor +600
Will “Miami” by Will Smith be performed as a cover?
This 1990s song never caught on like other songs specifically praising a city, and Will Smith has distanced himself from both the song and his rap career. With that in mind, it’s unlikely we hear either artist cover the song, especially since both Shakira and J-Lo have diverse catalogs after more than two decades of success.
Will a football be used as a prop?
Will Alex Rodriguez be shown during the halftime show?
Will DJ Khaled make an appearance on stage?
Will either singer drink Pepsi?
Will Enrique Iglesias make an appearance on stage?
Will Gerard Pique be shown during halftime show?
Will Gloria Estefan make an appearance on stage?
Will Jay-Z be shown during halftime show?
Will Ricky Martin make an appearance on stage?
Will Rihanna make an appearance on stage?
Will Pitbull make an appearance on stage?
Of all the people who could make an appearance alongside Shakira and Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull is the most likely to be seen. Mr. Worldwide is a constant presence at events that bridge the entertainment and sporting worlds, and he has recently collaborated with both Shakira and Jennifer Lopez on separate songs. Pitbull loves Miami and named his record label Mr. 305 after the city’s area code, so he is quite likely to be on stage at some point.
Will Will Smith make an appearance on stage?
Will Shakira and Jennifer Lopez both sing in Spanish?
Will there be a wardrobe malfunction?
We will never see a wardrobe malfunction at the Super Bowl again. After Janet Jackson’s career was sidetracked at Super Bowl XXXVIII for the scandal dubbed “Nipplegate”, no artist will want to risk harming their image by being too raunchy. This is a free four percent.
