Gloria Estefan didn’t end up performing alongside Jennifer Lopez and Shakira in the Super Bowl LIV halftime show, but she still has some ideas.
in the most recent “Watch what happened live with Andy Cohen,” Estefan says she hasn’t seen Lopez’s “Halftime” documentary, Discusses her preparations for the big show. However, Estefan said she had heard of the film, including Lopez saying in the project that co-hosting the halftime show with Shakira was “the worst idea in the world” for such a short show How difficult it is to arrange two performers.
Estefan, who performed in halftime shows in the 1990s, said “you have very little time” on stage.
“You have about 12 minutes to work on and off the set. So can you do it with one person?” Estefan said. “Yeah, but I think they wanted to have a Miami and Latin extravaganza. They tried to pack as much as they could, but they killed it.”
She said she turned down the chance to join the duo on the show and would only come out to perform the opening lyrics of her hit “Conga” if she agreed.
“Imagine what J. Lo would say if I were third?” said Estefan, who also joked that she doesn’t want to be on a diet in December in order to get ready for the Super Bowl in February.
Guest performers by Lopez and Shakira include J Balvin, Bad Bunny and Lopez’s child, Amy Muniz.
Estefan appeared on Cohen’s show with her “Father of the Bride” actor Andy Garcia.
