Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will perform at the Super Bowl in Miami in February as the N.F.L. tries to restore the cachet of its halftime show.
The two artists were the first chosen for the halftime show since the N.F.L. formed a broad partnership last month with Jay-Z, the music impresario who will help produce entertainment at the Super Bowl and other prominent N.F.L. events, and support the league’s social activism campaign, Inspire Change.
