Is it weird that we've been counting down the days ever since it was announced in September 2019 that Jennifer Lopez and Shakira would be headlining the 2020 Super Bowl LIV halftime show? We don't think so. Not only is this the first time that Jennifer and Shakira perform together, it is also a BIG deal to see two Latinas headlining the Super Bowl halftime show. When's the last time that happened? LIKE NEVER!

Well, it turns out we're not the only ones who have been counting down because both J.Lo and Shakira have been doing the same and we have pictures to prove it. Not only have they been rehearsing like crazy to deliver the kind of mic-drop performances that we are all used to seeing from them, but they've also been sharing their excitement and some behind-the-scenes photos on social media.

Oh, and as if getting to see J.Lo and Shakira perform weren't a big enough deal, Demi Lovato will be singing the national anthem before the game and Los Tigres del Norte will also make an appearance on the Spanish-language broadcast of the show. Keep scrolling to get hyped and learn more.

Shakira posted this cute graphic when there were 25 days left.

We totally raised our hand when she asked who else was counting down the days. We're not ashamed. We're too excited to be ashamed.


Jennifer got a new bling cup to celebrate.

So Jennifer's got a thing for blinged out cups and she got a new one to add to her collection in honor of the Super Bowl. Do you see the date on the cup? It's 02.02.20, which is the day of the Super Bowl. She debuted this beauty on the two week countdown.


Shakira giving it her all with only 10 days to go.

Here she is rehearsing for her performance. She's flying high!

On the field and ready to go!

Here's Jennifer 10 days before the show. She is so ready and so are we.


Who dis warming up her arm?

It's Shakira! Maybe she's worried one of the players will get injured and she'll have to help out. Probably not.

Nine days left and Shak's first day of rehearsals at the Hard Rock Stadium.

The big game and the big show are going down at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. Looks like just nine days before the show, Shakira got to start rehearsing at the venue.


It's not all hard work.

There's a lot of preparation that goes into putting together a killer performance and it must be stressful at times. Still, Jennifer let us all see that there's a lot of laughter that happens behind the scenes.

Here's Shakira with only five days left until showtime!

Can you imagine how much work goes into putting on a show that attracts over 100 million viewers? This is not amateur hour and that's a good thing because Shakira and Jennifer are not amateurs.


Mama Jen needs some love with only five days left until game day.

How sweet is this picture of Jennifer soaking up some love from her daughter during a break in rehearsals? Mamás live for that kind of love from their kiddos.

What's in Jennifer's Super Bowl kit?

It includes cafecito, shades, cellphones, a bling cup, and a bling microphone. The cup and microphone go together really well.


Don't forget Demi Lovato will be singing the national anthem.

Tune in early if you want to catch Demi singing "The Star-Spangled Banner." OK, we should probably also mention that it will be the San Francisco 49ers playing the Kansas City Chiefs since the event is technically about football. If you would like to tune in, the event is being covered by Fox on Sunday, February 2, with the unofficial kickoff time being 6:30 p.m. ET.

And what about Los Tigres del Norte?

If you watch the Spanish broadcast, you will see Los Tigres del Norte appear during a video presentation that celebrates their legacy and the 100 seasons of NFL history. How great would it be if in a surprise twist Los Tigres del Norte took the stage with J.Lo and Shakira? It would be epic!
