San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs are going head-to-head in the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 2, blah blah, but we’re far more excited about and Jennifer Lopez , y’all. Shakira ‘s fiancé and the “Hips Don’t Lie” songstress will take the stage during the Alex Rodriguez NFL halftime show, and honestly, that’s all we really care about. Along with the commercials, of course. Keep scrolling to see previous performers!

1993: Micahel Jackson
Only the King of Pop could pull off standing on stage for 90 seconds … without moving … when acts only given 13 minutes to perform! By the time he busted into “Jam,” fans were on the edge of their seats.

1996: Diana Ross
The former Supremes singer was indeed, supreme, at the 1996 halftime show. She belted out tunes like, “You Keep Me Hanging On,” “Baby Love” and “I Will Survive” before heading out on a helicopter. As one does.

TBH, I’ve never listened to their album (remember when everyone was FORCED into it on iTunes??), but they’ve been around forever and certainly know how to get the crowd going.

2003: Sting, Shania Twain and No Doubt
No doubt this was the greatest halftime show of all time! I may or may not have seen
in concert three times, so I’m a lil biased. Shania Twain

2008: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
No bells and whistles here!
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers‘ performance was underrated because he ( gasp!), just let his talent shine. The then 57-year-old offered up hits like “American Girl,” “Free Fallin” and “Won’t Back Down.”

2009: Bruce Springsteen
Who doesn’t love a Jersey boy? “I want you to step back from the guacamole dip, I want you to put the chicken fingers down and turn your television all the way up,” he told the crowd. Sure thing, Boss!
