J-Lo Owns the Superbowl

February 5, 2018 - 6:15am

Jennifer Lopez raised money for Hurricane Maria victims in Puerto Rico, celebrated an anniversary with beau Alex Rodriguez and covered Prince songs at a pre-Super Bowl concert in Minneapolis.

Lopez headlined the DIRECTV NOW Super Saturday Night concert, working the stage and singing hits like "I'm Real" and "Love Don't Cost a Thing."

She changed at least seven times during the nearly two-hour concert: She started in a body suit and then switched to a loose jersey that read "J LO" and the No. 13 - one of the many odes to A-Rod. When she performed her new dance single "Us," released on Friday, she said worked on the song a year ago - around the time she started dating the former New York Yankee player. Lopez also used a baseball bat as a prop during "Jenny from the Block."

She sported a dramatic, long fur-like coat during a dance break for "If You Had My Love," weaving in a bit of Sheila E's "The Glamorous Life." She also sang a medley of Prince songs for the Minneapolis crowd - including "When Doves Cry" and "Darling Nikki" - and even slide across the stage on her knees while a guitarist gave his best impression of The Purple One.

Lopez also covered Aretha Franklin's "Respect"; danced to Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow" and Camila Cabello's "Havana" and joined by Ne-Yo for a duet of "All I Have." She let DJ Khaled work the audience up while she changed outfits.

J. Lo She closed the set with a festive vibe with "Let's Get Loud," as her dancers played congos and pyrotechnics burst in the air.

Saturday's concert raised awareness for post-Hurricane Maria relief and recovery effort in Puerto Rico. AT&T said it would match charitable contributions up to $200K to the Hispanic Federation, and it would give a $1 donation to the Hispanic Federation for every tweet using the hashtag #JLoNOW.
