By Meredith B. Kile
This is happening! Jennifer Lopez and Shakira are playing Super Bowl LIV!
The singers sent the halftime-show hype into overdrive on Thursday, posting pics to their social media pages with the date of the upcoming NFL championship game.
"This is happening. 🌎 02.02.20," Lopez shared, alongside a cropped photo of Shakira decked out in all gold -- with a notable Pepsi logo on her arm. (Pepsi is the perennial sponsor of the star-studded Super Bowl Halftime Show.)
Shakira shared a similar pic of Lopez, with the Pepsi logo on her ring and belt, along with the caption, "Get ready 🌎 02.02.20."
Pepsi and the NFL then confirmed the exciting news, tweeting, "Two queens. First time together on stage…on the world’s biggest stage. Welcome @JLo and @shakira to #PepsiHalftime #SBLIV @RocNation @NFL."
A source tells ET that J.Lo and Shakira will both be performing at the halftime show, but there will be more acts added. "The NFL wants to make it a big event that focuses on Miami, the city where it will take place," the source adds. "The Super Bowl Halftime Show will be a melody of numerous acts performing together at times."
"Going to set the world on 🔥🔥🔥," Lopez later tweeted, while Shakira shared, "It doesn’t get any bigger than this! So excited about getting on that #SuperBowlLIV #PepsiHalftime stage!"
Lopez' fiance, Alex Rodriguez, who grew up in Miami, also posted his excitement about the big show, writing, "So proud and SO EXCITED! Bringing it home! Going to set the #305 on 🔥."
ET spoke with Lopez about the possibility of playing the big game back in July. "Yeah, we've thought about the Super Bowl and it's in Miami, it's a big deal, but we'll see," she told ET at the time. "They make their own decisions over there."
