You may be used to seeing Shakira potentially looking a little taller in photoshoots and on red carpets due to the power of high heels but she is fairly petite. The “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)” hitmaker stands a mere 5-foot-2, or 157 cm in height.

Fans of Lopez and Shakira have known about the two Latin superstars performing at the Super Bowl since last September. Both entertainers originally teased their Instagram followers by posting a photo of each other on their accounts.

Shortly later, it was announced they would both be performing together for this year’s half time show. Since then, the iconic duo hasn’t stopped teasing fans about the big show.
