Their 15-minute set drew a sizable 103 million total viewers on Fox, which is up 4% or roughly 3 million on last year’s Maroon 5-fronted affair.

J Lo and Shakira not only celebrated Latinx culture in terms of history and artistry through their singing and dance moves, but the pair also infused several political elements into their performance. Many called it a much needed energy boost from Maroon 5’s performance last year, a game with a drab 13-3 win for the New England Patriots over the Los Angeles Rams.

However, like for the overall game itself, the numbers for Sunday’s Halftime Show didn’t quite match those from 2018 and 2017. The 2018 show, which saw Justin Timberlake take to the stage in Minnesota, drew 106.6 million total viewers, a 4% better tally than this year’s show.
