The performance, at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium, was a high-energy celebration of culture and abs, as both women showcased soaring vocals and thunderous dance routines.
Shakira opened in a glittering ensemble, getting the crowd of 65,000 on their feet with “She Wolf” and “Wherever, Whenever”.
She was then joined by Puerto Rican reggaeton singer Bad Bunny for a few lines of “I Like It” (originally sung by rap star Cardi B) before segueing into her iconic hit, “Hips Don’t Lie”.
The stage then cleared as Jennifer Lopez appeared atop a miniature Empire State Building, a nod to her New York roots, much like King Kong — or Queen Kong, as it were.
After a few bars of “Jenny From the Block,” Jenny herself took the crowd through a medley of “Love Don’t Cost A Thing”, “Get Right” and “On the Floor”, her transitions as fast and sharp as her dance moves.
