15 Minutes of Latinx Fun (with a side of immigration politics): The Superbowl Halftime Show

Here is the entire Shakira/J-Lo Superbowl Half Time Show:

Now, let's talk about it.

At my house, the number one question people had was: who is that rapper? It's J Balvin. He's a reggaeton heavyweight out of Colombia. (That's also where Shakira hails from.)

Next, you might have also asked yourself: did I just see kids in cages? Yes you did. Jump back to 11:40. That's when J-Lo's daughter Emme kicks things off, singing from her cage: "If you wanna live your life, live it all the way and don't you waste it." Once Emme exits the cage (and stands next to her mom who is bedecked in the most fantastic reversible boa jacket ever seen -- one side American flag, one side Puerto Rican flag -- Emme starts singing "Born in the USA."

A powerful performance by some pretty amazing Latinx entertainers.
