Baby, I like it.
You can bet Enrique Iglesias' song with the same lyrics will be at least part of his halftime performance at the Thanksgiving football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Miami Dolphins. The game is at 3:15 p.m. Thursday, November 24 at Cowboys Stadium.
Spanish pop music icon Iglesias has climbed the Billboard charts with singles like "I Like It" and "Tonight (I'm Lovin' You)." He also was recently a guest judge on The X Factor with Nicole Scherzinger and is responsible for "Hero," that early 2000's song we love to sing in the car when no one's watching.
To commemorate Iglesias' participation in the halftime show, he was given a Cowboys jersey that said "Enrique" on it with the number 67 -- for the number of No. 1 spots he's had on the Billboard charts, according to a press release from The Salvation Army.
The performance marks the start of the Red Kettle Campaign during the holiday season, now in its 120th year. It's the 15th year that the group has partnered with the Cowboys for the Thanksgiving game. Iglesias joins a list of former halftime performers including Keith Urban, Jonas Brothers, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Sheryl Crow, Jessica Simpson, and Reba McEntire.
UPDATE: Below is the performance. Rapper Pitbull joined Iglesias for part of the halftime show.
