Shakira's moment went viral.

While some found the moment Shakira did a zaghrouta, an Arabic expression of joy and celebration, downright hilarious and out of place, it became a learning experience for a lot of people unfamiliar with the culture. But it also produced countless memes.

J.Lo's spin on a pole reminded fans of tacos.

This was such a great visual, and now we are also in the mood for some tacos. 

The flag trick was breathtaking.

J.Lo had a custom-made Versace coat that showed the United States flag on one side and the Puerto Rican flag on the other. Seeing the PR flag displayed like this was so beautiful.

J.Lo got political in one portion of the show.

While her daughter, Emme, was singing "Let's Get Loud," the camera captured a bunch of children, including Emme, as they sat inside cages surrounding the stage. It was a subtle and artistic way to bring attention to what is happening at the border at the moment. 

There was a lot of criticism following the show.

The NFL has received some backlash in the past for the way it deals with race and other controversial topics. A lot of viewers were not pleased seeing two Latina women singing, in Spanish, during the halftime show--but that's exactly what they got!
