12 Super Bowl 2023 commercials to watch now, from Breaking Bad to Ozzy to Missy Elliott
UPDATE: Watch Rihanna's Halftime Show and the game's other musical performances HERE.
Super Bowl LVII goes down this Sunday (2/12) at Glendale, Arizona's State Farm Stadium, with the Kansas City Chiefs playing the Philadelphia Eagles, and a halftime show from Rihanna, which will be her first public performance in nearly six years. Chris Stapleton will be singing the National Anthem, Babyface will be singing "America the Beautiful," and Sheryl Lee Ralph will sing "Lift Every Voice and Sing" during the pre-game festivities, which start at 6 PM Eastern. You can watch on FOX with cable TV or stream it on Hulu Live TV, YouTube TV, DirecTV Stream, FuboTV and Sling TV.
Speaking with Apple Music Radio host Nadeska Alexis about putting her setlist together for the Halftime Show, Rihanna said:
The set list was the biggest challenge. That was the hardest hardest part. Deciding how to maximize 13 minutes, but also celebrate. That’s what this show’s gonna be, it’s gonna be a celebration of my catalogue in the best way we could have put it together. And you only have 13 minutes, that's the challenge, so you’re trying to cram 17 years of work into 13 minutes. So it’s difficult. You know, some songs we have to lose because of that, and that’s gonna be okay. But I think we did a pretty good job of narrowing it down.
And about her long-awaited new music, she added, "Musically, I’m feeling open. I’m feeling open to exploring, discovering, creating, things that are new, things that are different, things that are off, weird, might not ever make sense to my fans."
