Watch: Jennifer Lopez & Shakira Score the Super Bowl 54 Halftime Show

Jennifer Lopez is a jack of all trades. To prove that, she's ready to not only perform at the 2020 Super Bowl, but also play in it.

During an appearance on Thursday's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Hustlers star chatted with Jimmy Fallon about the "spectacular, crazy, amazing, overwhelming, scary, beautiful year" she's had, which includes her preparations for the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime Show with Shakira.

As she said of the upcoming show in Miami, "We're gonna bring that flavor." Fallon, trying to get an understanding of the process, then assumed Lopez and her co-star have a bunch of time left to get ready. But as the 50-year-old multi-hyphenate revealed, that's not the case.

"It's really not," she said. "Because we have Christmas, and then you're back in January and it's literally Feb. 2. So, it's gonna happen quickly, I feel like." The two music icons have "between 12 and 14 minutes" of stage time to get ready for (which, according to Lopez, will also include guest performers), but Fallon wanted to know what else she has up her sleeve.

As he joked, "And you're gonna be playing in the Super Bowl, as well. Is that true?" Without missing a beat, J.Lo responded with the most perfect joke. "Yes!" she said. "Tight end."

Naturally, the quip made Fallon and the entire audience crack up, as it was the perfect reference to her famous booty.

As Lopez, who is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, teased, "I don't know where that came from! Getting my jokes all ready for SNL."

Now, put on your helmets and check out the rest of the interview to hear how Lopez's epic appearance at the Versace fashion show came to pass.
