Jennifer Lopez and Shakira have been tapped to perform at the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show.

The NFL, Pepsi, and Roc Nation said on Sept. 26 that the singers will perform Feb. 2 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.

“It doesn’t get any bigger than this! So excited about getting on that #SuperBowlLIV #PepsiHalftime stage!” Shakira wrote on Twitter.

In a press release, Lopez said, “Ever since I saw Diana Ross fly off into the sky at the Halftime Show, I dreamed of performing at the Super Bowl. And now it’s made even more special not only because it’s the NFL’s 100th anniversary, but also because I am performing with a fellow Latina. I can’t wait to show what us girls can do on the world’s biggest stage,” according to the NFL’s website.

Lopez, a Grammy-award winning singer, has sold more than 75 million records. Shakira, also a Grammy winner, has sold the same amount.

“I’m so honored to be taking on one of the world’s biggest stages in the company of a fellow female artist to represent Latinos and Latinas from the U.S. and all over the world—and to top it off, on my birthday!” said Shakira, adding that she will be 43. “This is a true American dream and we are going to bring the show of a lifetime!”

“These two remarkable artists are setting a new precedent for what this show can become, and we’re confident that this will be an incredible performance for the ages,” Todd Kaplan, Pepsi’s vice president of marketing, said in a statement, according to ABC News.

“We are so excited to announce that global superstars Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will take the stage together for the very first time at the Pepsi Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show,” Adam Harter, Senior Vice President of Sports, Media and Entertainment, for PepsiCo said in a statement, according to People magazine.

“We’ve been working closely behind-the-scenes with our longstanding partners at the NFL, and now alongside Roc Nation to bring these mega superstars together. It is a testament to our partnership and commitment to push the envelope of what is possible.”
