As excitement for Super Bowl LIV comes to a fever pitch, the list of performers attached to this year’s big game gets even longer. Pitbull has been announced as a pregame performer, in addition to country music duo Dan + Shay, gospel singer Yolanda Adams and DJ Khaled. Jennifer Lopez and Shakira are headlining the halftime show, making history as the first Latinas to ever headline a performance, Los Tigres del Norte are also slated to make a special appearance.

The performances from Pitbull, Yolanda Adams, Dan + Shay, and DJ Khaled are part of the NFL Tailgate Tropicale, a series of performances and festivities happening in Miami ahead of kick-off. The sets will air on Fox starting at 2:00 pm Eastern time. According to Billboard, Dan + Shay will perform “Tequila,” and Pitbull will perform “Get Ready.” Yolanda Adams will be singing “America The Beautiful” — Demi Lovato is slated to sing the national anthem. It’s not clear which songs will be in DJ Khaled’s set, but he will be DJing out of Hard Rock Stadium, where the game is set to kick-off at 6:30 pm Eastern Time.

“Catch me at SUPER BOWL LIV in MIAMI! FIRST EVER to be performing from the sideline during pregame,” Khaled wrote on Instagram. Dan + Shay shared a similar message of excitement, writing “super bowl weekend is shaping up to be a dream.”

In terms of a Super Bowl pregame lineup, it couldn’t get much more Miami than Pitbull and DJ Khaled. Pitbull obviously, reigns as Mr. 305. A walk through Miami’s Little Havana district will find plenty of tributes to star, who has made a name for himself in cross-over club hits. DJ Khaled also lives Miami — perhaps most famously –– he got lost at sea while taking a jetski to Rick Ross’s waterfront mansion.

Tune in to Fox on February 2, 2020, to catch all of the Super Bowl moments.
