A show to remember. Rihanna was named headliner for the 2023 Super Bowl LVII halftime show.
The performer announced this with a simple photo through Instagram it showed her tattooed arm holding an NFL-logoed soccer ball.
The NFL’s official Instagram account confirmed the news by posting the same photo with an excited caption: “Let’s go – @badgalriri @rocnation #SBLVII @applemusic @nflonfox.”
Instagram account Bravo See what’s happening live succinctly summed up most of the immediate reactions: “Omgggg, the Fenty bowl is coming.”
Super Bowl LVII is scheduled for February 12, 2023 in Arizona.
This news came immediately after rumors that Taylor Swift soon to be announced as the halftime show performer. Speculation that the 32-year-old “Blank Space” singer could perform on TV on the most popular night of the year began when it was announced that Apple Music would act as an NFL concert sponsor. The tech company has taken over the role of Pepsi since 2013, the same year that Swift launched its partnership with Coca-Cola, and the partnership was announced at 12:00 pm ET. Swift is about to release his album midnight next month, and the Swifties love a good theory.
Fans can stop speculating about who will be performing and instead move on to imagining a show that Rihanna could create. Barring any additions to her schedule before then, the 2023 Super Bowl show will be her first major performance since the birth of her son in May. She has a boy, whose name has not yet been announced, with ASAP Rocky.
The show’s 2022 halftime performers included Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar and 50 Cent. Headliners in recent years have included The Weeknd, Coldplay, Lady Gaga and Beyoncé.
