Well I have to admit that I was wrong, I didn't have high expectations for this year's Super Bowl halftime show. Not anything specific against Shakira or Jennifer Lopez. Honestly, I was still a little bitter about Kaepernick, Jay-Z & the NFL at large.

Miami couldn't have been a better place for these two latinx divas to rule the stage, as it hold a mecca like status for Latin Americans much like Atlanta does for African Americans.
Who We Saw & Who We Missed:
J Balvin and Bad Bunny did awesome as hype-men for the two leading ladies but in what was clearly designed to be a message about the force that is latin women in music and I can't think of a bigger one right now then one Cardi B!

Shakira Won The Trending Battle
Both women did fabulously but Shakira won the online conversation. After the performance I checked to see what was trending. This is probably best explained by the fact that we kinda see J.Lo all the time.
