Football is the most-watched sport in the US, and the Super Bowl every year is among the most-watched games nationwide. This year’s Super Bowl featured the Kansas City Chiefs coming from behind the San Francisco 49ers to beat them, becoming the national champs. Although the game itself is always the most important part of the Super Bowl, the game’s halftime show is also one of the most anticipated parts of the game.

The halftime show was headlined by Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, with some other guests, such as Bad Bunny. The halftime show created perhaps as much buzz as the game itself, as Lopez and Shakira had most guys on the edge of their seats.

“It was muy caliente”, answered Dylan Myers, a sophomore. “I liked it. I thought it was pretty entertaining, and even if it was questionable for some audiences, it’s better for it to be a hit for some than a train wreck for all”.

“When Shakira was on, I didn’t like it because I feel like they should’ve headlined an artist that has more popular songs right now”, answered junior Carly Evans, “When J-Lo came on I liked her performance, but overall, I think they could’ve done better”.

Although these are two conflicting views, neither is as extreme as some arguments that have been made for either side by others, as there are those who loved the show and those who couldn’t stand it.
