With less than three months until the Super Bowl, Jennifer Lopez is making sure her halftime show is absolutely flawless.

The pop diva’s fiancé Alex Rodriguez discussed the preparations Lopez is currently undertaking.

"Oh, she's been rehearsing for, like, six weeks,” the 44-year-old said during an appearance on ”Today.

Rodriguez also revealed the “Waiting for Tonight” singer had been seriously considered for the gig in years past.

"You know, it's been a dream of hers her whole life," the former New York Yankee star added. "Who doesn't want to play at the Super Bowl, right? And she's always wanted it, she's been close a few times.”

After previously missing out on the opportunity, Lopez was overcome with emotion when she was notified the prestigious honor would finally happen in 2020.

He continued: “And when we got that call from [NFL Commissioner] Roger Goodell and the league and Jay-Z, we were thrilled and she was in tears."

In September, it was announced Lopez would co-headline Super Bowl LIV alongside Shakira.

"I love that the Super Bowl has two women performing this year,” the “Hustlers” star said at the time. “That they have two Latinos performing this year. It's the marker of a new time, not just for the NFL but for this country. It sends an important message."

While neither J.Lo nor Shakira have said which guest stars  may be joining them on stage, Gloria Estefan has revealed she turned down appearing alongside her two fellow Latina superstars.

“Jay-Z called me and said, ‘You know something? I’m coming to Miami,’ and Gloria said, ‘I’m not going to the Super Bowl. I don’t want to do it!'” her husband Emilio Estefan explained to “Entertainment Tonight.”

Gloria added: “Come on—those high-stress things? That’s a high-stress thing. I’ve done them. I’ve done two.”

The “Conga” singer performed at the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 1992 and then again in 1999, alongside Stevie Wonder and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.

“I’m really thrilled for Shakira and J.Lo, who are going to be burning up the stage because those women are hot,” the 62-year-old said.

Super Bowl LIV will take place in Miami on Feb. 2, 2020.
