Jennifer Lopez Comments on Kids in Cages After Poignant Super Bowl Moment

Jennifer Lopez Comments on Kids in Cages After Poignant Super Bowl Moment”

Super Bowl LIV was watched by more than 99.9 million people on FOX, rising from last year's broadcast numbers.

Latinos across the USA took to social media to praise and dissect the Super Bowl halftime performance by Shakira and Jennifer Lopez - two of the world's most popular Latina artists.

Said appendage belongs to pop star Shakira, thus ensuring it immediately went viral for the right and wrong reasons, depending on one's willingness to get what they were seeing.

While some have parodied the tongue waggling, others have pointed out its Arabic cultural significance - as a sound to express happiness, known as a zagrouta.

Tonight's matchup is historic on the field - it's the first time the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers have ever met in a Super Bowl - but the 2020 Halftime Show was just as groundbreaking.

It is often performed at weddings, parties and other celebrations.

Shakira, who was born in Colombia, has a Lebanese father who was born New York City and her performance style is a marriage of her blended heritage. Twitter users immediately did what they had to do, turning the footage into a meme.

The moment in question occurred about five minutes into the "Hips Don't Lie" singer's performance, where Shakira looked into the camera and performed a high-pitched tongue trill.

Shakira also paid homage to her Colombian background with her performance, thanking the south American country for its musical legacy in a tweet shared afterwards. The beat switched up during "Ojos Así", which she performed in both Spanish and Arabic, and changed to a traditional Arabic bellydancing rhythm. Instead, let's celebrate it and call it what it is-that's what the Zaghrouta is used for, after all!
