Now that’s how you do a Super Bowl halftime show.

Jennifer Lopez and fellow pop legend Shakira joined forces to co-headline the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show, putting on a dazzling performance that electrified Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium.

Lopez, known as a triple threat who can sing, dance and act, wore racy outfits and pole danced—showing off the skills she learned for her movie Hustlers—while singing her top hits, including “Jenny From the Block,” “Ain’t That Funny,” “Get Right,” “Waiting For Tonight,” “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” and “Let’s Get Loud” (the latter song also featured an appearance by daughter Emmy and a children’s choir).
