Have you ever wanted to dance like J-Lo?

Here’s your chance. Thanks to a new TikTok challenge, anyone can mimic Jennifer Lopez’s iconic halftime performance from this year’s Super Bowl. Or at least attempt to. Not everyone is capable of pulling off the impressive performance, but that isn’t stopping them from trying it.

On Feb. 2, Lopez and Shakira blew away audiences with a stellar halftime show at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. The eye-catching performance has been on people’s minds ever since. The #JLoTikTokChallenge is now giving anyone the chance to show off their best versions of the dazzling show.

The J-Lo TikTok challenge

Unsurprisingly, not everyone can move like J-Lo, but people are giving it their all. J-Lo encouraged participants to dance to one of the songs from her performance and share the video online. She’s been gathering up all of her favorites and sharing them on her Instagram story.

There are some truly impressive people out there. A shocking number of participants absolutely crushed their attempts at the difficult choreography.


People of all ages were invited to participate, and soon the internet was drowning in videos. The majority of dances were uploaded by people in their mid-20s and 30s, but that didn’t stop plenty of kids from taking part as well.


And yes, there were epic failures.


As far as TikTok challenges go, this one is pretty tame. Dangerous TikTok challenges have been on the rise for the last few months, so the J-Lo dance challenge is a breath of fresh air. No one has suffered a serious injury, electric shock, or caused property damage while participating, so dance away, everyone.
