How much did Jennifer Lopez get paid for the Super Bowl halftime show in 2020?
Jennifer has been making headlines lately after revealing that she has major regrets about performing at the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show with Shakira. In her new documentary Halftime, she calls the performance the “worst idea in the world."
She said that because she was frustrated at the limited amount of time she and Shakira had on stage. Both performers had things they wanted to bring to the table for the Super Bowl show, but they simply didn’t have the time they needed.
Somehow, Jennifer and Shakira were successfully able to get through 20 songs in 12 minutes. It was an impressive feat to accomplish. A couple of years have passed since they took the stage, and people are still curious to know how much Jennifer was paid for the performance.
According to Forbes, Jennifer didn’t receive payment for performing at the 2020 Super Bowl … and other performers typically don’t either.
Marc Ganis, the Sportscorp president of consulting, explained, “They are willing to perform for free and even subsidize the production costs through their record label or concert promoters because of this incredible exposure.”
He further stated, “Even the biggest names need to continually promote themselves. The Super Bowl halftime show is the single biggest promotional vehicle for a music star on the planet.”
In other words, Jennifer and other musicians who perform for the Super Bowl agree to receive a massive amount of publicity instead of a check.
