[ Cheers and applause ] -[ Laughs ] -Please don’t make me cry.
-Oh, my gosh. -Thank you so much.
-We love you! -I love you!
-We — yeah, we love you! [ Cheers and applause ] -Oh, my God.
-Oh, gosh. I’m so happy for you.
Oh, my gosh. -Oh, my God, I can’t.
-You’re getting emotional. -I am getting emotional.
[ Cheers and applause ] -Yeah — we love you.
You hit a homer, buddy. -Thank you.
-You hit a homer. -Thank you.
-Here, I’ll give you a tissue if you need one.
[ Laughter ] -Thank you. -Well, you have to walk me
through everything. But first, what a great
halftime show. -Thank you.
-That was unbelievable. [ Cheers and applause ] 100 —
-Thank you. -100 million people
watched — oh, no, 110 million people watched
it on TV. Your halftime show alone has
gotten over 100 million on YouTube in less than a week.
-Thank you. -I mean, it’s obviously —
[ Cheers and applause ] When I say that you knocked
it out of the park, I mean you hit a home run.
It’s unbelievable. And I know you. How much did you rehearse
for this? -I got emotional because
we did, we worked so hard. [ Light laughter ] We started rehearsing
in November for my set. And, you know,
it was just every single day, every single day for the —
it’s a short amount of time, you know what I mean? But —
-Yeah. So much goes into that
moment. And it’s hundreds of people. They put that stage together
in seven minutes. And then you get on it
and then you rock. And it’s just — it’s crazy.
It is such a big deal. And — -I mean, like walk me
through this. -I’m just glad everybody
liked it. [ Cheers and applause ]
-We beyond liked it. We beyond liked it. -That’s why I got emotional,
yeah. -It’s a score.
You should take the victory lap. You should own this
’cause you scored. So walk me through.
You wake up, Sunday morning, Miami.
-You’re like, “it’s here!” -I know, and you’re like —
so you wake up — -I wake up, I went to work out.
-Okay. -Because I feel like that
always helps my mind get right. You know what I mean?
It calms me down. -Do you eat breakfast
before you work out? -Yes, I eat breakfast and —
-Okay, now do you get superstitious like
what you’re gonna eat? -I was on a diet the whole time.
-Yeah, right. -You know, just trying to be
in my best shape ever. -And healthy, yeah.
-And healthy and feel good. And then I went to work out,
and then I went back home and then I called
my choreographer. I was like, “Come over.
We’re going to go over everything
just a couple more times. Just a couple —
just me and you. Like, none of the dancers,
nobody. Just me and you.”
She’s like, “Okay, I’ll be there
in 20 minutes.” You know, and she came over.
We went into my garage. We went over it
a few more times. We just like dialed in,
you know, couple of moments. -Oh, gosh.
-And then I started getting ready to head over
to the park. And we got there early.
We get there early. They ask you to be there
really early because of all the traffic, obviously. Super Bowl weekend in Miami was,
you know, insane. -Yeah, so —
-And so we get there, and then we basically wait
for the show. -So you’re in the
stadium just waiting? -Yeah, around 4:00.
-Wow. -And we went on, I guess around
8:00-ish, you know. So — -Now are you just
nervous the whole day? -You know, I kept praying. I was like, “God, just help me,
you know, embrace this moment, be in the moment and just do
my best and to feel good.” I didn’t want to miss it by
being too nervous or being, you know, too anxious
or anything. I just wanted —
I wanted to feel good. It was a once in-a-lifetime
kind of experience. The type of thing, as an artist
that you always dream of doing. And so I just wanted
to feel good. And so I just tried to stay,
like, really present. And it was good, it was good. -Is it a dream for you
to do the Super Bowl? -It was.
-It was? -It was.
-Do you remember the first one you saw? -You know, I remember seeing
-You know, kill it in the rain. Sing “Purple Rain” in the rain. -The rain was purple.
The rain was purple, yeah. -It actually rained for him. -That was insane that
it actually did. -You know what I mean?
-He was — yeah. -You know, there’s so many.
I remember, like, going back when I got the Super Bowl
and watching Diana Ross’s. I watched Madonna’s, I watched,
you know, Aerosmith. I watched so many. I watched Bruno’s
and Beyoncé’s and Gaga. I just watched everything.
-That’s wild. -And for a few years,
you know, they were talking to me about doing it,
and then, finally this year it was just like, “Okay.”
-Yeah, you’re gonna do it. -“You’re gonna do it.”
-There’s a video that’s already viral online. I think it has like, over,
like, over 5 million hits. -Uh-oh.
Which one is it? -Of just you right before
you’re about to go on. And you’re just like —
[ Heavy breathing ] And like, you’re just like,
“Yeah.” It is the most — it’s like,
“Wanna see confidence?” [ Laughter and applause ] I wanna watch.
I wanna see. -I want to see which part
you have. -Here’s Jennifer right before
she went on stage. -Take a look at this. [ Cheers and applause ]
♪♪ -Yeah, I mean, come on!
[ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪
-I mean — -You know — -Come on.
-You know you have to go over your first move in
your head. You’re like, okay is it —
got it, got it, got it. [ Laughter ] I’m ready to go.
I’m ready to go. -And I will say, by the way,
everyone was like, “She is perfection.”
-Thank you. -You looked gorgeous
and you were just awesome. [ Cheers and applause ]
Every move, precise and cool. How do you — I know —
I love all your hit songs. But there’s so many songs.
How do you choose what order or what songs
you’re gonna do? Because there’s not
that much time. -It wasn’t a lot of time,
and obviously me and Shakira had to split the time. So, usually it’s one artist
that does it. So it was — it was tough.
It was tough. You know, I think when I first
did my first set it was like 20 minutes,
and I had like six. -Yeah, like, “Hey, Jennifer,
a little problem.” -“Okay, I’m gonna
have to cut this down. This is not going to work.” -“Shakira, just come out
and wave and leave. I gotta do my set.”
