Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will headline the Super Bowl LIV halftime show in the Miami in February.

Both singers confirmed that they would host the show on Twitter. The NFL confirmed shortly after.

"Ever since I saw Diana Ross fly off into the sky at the Halftime Show, I dreamed of performing at the Super Bowl," Lopez said in an NFL press release. "And now it's made even more special not only because it's the NFL's 100th anniversary, but also because I am performing with a fellow Latina. I can't wait to show what us girls can do on the world's biggest stage."

"I'm so honored to be taking on one of the world's biggest stages in the company of a fellow female artist to represent Latinos and Latinas from the U.S. and all over the world -- and to top it off, on my birthday!" Shakira said. "This is a true American dream and we are going to bring the show of a lifetime!"

Schefter added that more performers are expected to be added to the lineup as the date draws nearer.

Lopez and Shakira follow Maroon 5 and Outkast and Travis Scott who headlined the Super Bowl LIII halftime show in Atlanta earlier this year.

Super Bowl LIV will take place on Feb. 7 at Miami's Hard Rock Stadium.
