Estefan, who previously performed during halftime shows in the 1990s, said “You have very little time” on stage.
“You have like 12 minutes or something to get things on and off the set. So could you do it with one person?,” Estefan said. “Yes, but I think they wanted to throw a Miami and Latin extravaganza. They tried to pack in as much as possible, and they killed it.”
She said she turned down the opportunity to participate in the show with the pair and would have only come out and performed the opening lyrics of her hit, “Conga,” had she agreed to it.
“Imagine what J. Lo would have said if I would have been a third?,” Estefan said, also joking that she didn’t want to have to go on a diet in December in order to have been ready for the February Super Bowl.
Estefan appeared on Cohen’s show with her “Father of the Bride” costar, Andy Garcia.
