Photos: J Lo and Shakira project power of women at Super Bowl showcase

Jennifer Lopez and Shakira brought Latina star power to Sunday's Super Bowl halftime show, delivering a medley of pop hits and hip-shaking choreography on one of the world's glitziest stages. The performance also made a subtle nod to the current political climate in the United States. One sequence in the show featured children in illuminated pods that looked like cages. It was an apparent reference to U.S. immigration enforcement under President Donald Trump that put mostly Latin American boys and girls in holding cells, a practice that caused public outcry. Dressed in a sequined, ruby-red outfit with matching boots, Shakira led her team of dancers through snippets of hits, before giving way to J. Lo. Lopez made her entrance in black leather and studs on a stage set resembling the top of the Empire State Building, as "Jenny from the Block" proudly announced she was from the Bronx, New York.
