Shakira kicked the show off and mesmerized many fans, but other viewers, especially parents with kids watching, left the room, turned the show off until halftime was over, or turned to social media to vent about how inappropriate they thought the halftime show was.
What’s all the fuss about? If you stuck around to watch the show, you know that Shakira and J Lo showed off their musical talent, their dancing abilities and their toned physique.
Viewers seem to be split about what message the skimpy costumes and sexy dance moves (pole dancing, anyone?) is sending to our children, in particular, young girls. Some viewers felt that it was empowering to see two middle aged women in such great shape rocking the halftime show.

So all future half time shows have a problem. There is no way that can ever be topped!!!! It was amazing, I was smiling the whole way through 👍😊💃

Other viewers thought the costumes were very inappropriate and the dance moves were way too suggestive.
I kinda felt like I was at a soft core strip club watching this

You haven’t experienced parenthood until you try & explain that halftime performance to 3 little girls under 7. If anyone talks to Emrie about this, just go along with the story that J.Lo and Shakira lost their clothes on the flight to Miami. #SBLIV
