The Super Bowl Halftime Show is the draw for many of the hundred millions of people who tune into watch the biggest sporting event in the country.
This year’s, though, is a bit more special given that the artist, megastar Rihanna, has not performed since the 2018 Grammy’s.
The obligatory going-through-the motions viewing that can sometimes happen in these shows will be replaced by countless worshiping fans
who are desperate to see the Barbadian legend in action. Who knows what can be in store?
We will give it our best guess here. These are our bold predictions for Rihanna’s Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show.
Rihanna has had 14 songs top the Billboard Hot 100, and not one of them is 2005’s “Pon De Replay,”
which maxed out at No.2. Yet, it seems like the right song to kick start the proceedings
. People that are in Glendale, Arizona to catch the concert live will go bonkers regardless,
but it is always smart to set the tone with a song that will ignite the crowd.
It is a cult favorite among many of Rihanna’s fans and would also be a fitting blast from the past given that she has not toured in more than six years.
It can be tricky to walk that tightrope of nostalgic tunes and the more current,
mainstream hits a younger audience will expect and want.
The added “grand return” feel of the show, though, affords Rihanna the rare option to lean into the former without risking much backlash.
