How About Some Prop Bets on Rihanna’s Super Bowl Performance?
Fact Checked by Evans Fatimah

It’s been nearly five years since Rihanna’s last live performance, so why not have her make her comeback at the halftime show of Super Bowl LVII? No pressure.

After five Bowls, she ended her self-imposed boycott of the big game, signaling a change in her stance originally taken in support of Colin Kaepernick in 2019.

The Barbadian singer, actress, and fashion entrepreneur has joined the prestigious list of performers at the recent Super Bowl, following in the footsteps of music icons such as Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar. This comes after The Weeknd performed in 2021, and Shakira and Jennifer Lopez took the stage in 2020.

Rihanna will be the main act at the Super Bowl halftime show on Feb. 12 in Glendale, Arizona. Due to the state’s popularity for sports betting, it is anticipated that Arizona betting sites will experience a significant increase in activity for both standard football bets and prop bets during the most significant betting event of the year.

Past Super Bowl Halftime Shows

Since the early days of Super Bowl halftime shows, which began with two college marching bands and trumpeter Al Hirt at Super Bowl I, we have made significant progress. Iconic performances such as Ella Fitzgerald and Carol Channing paying tribute to Louis Armstrong at Super Bowl VI, and Up With People celebrating the bicentennial at Super Bowl X in 1976 have paved the way. Super Bowl XXI raised the bar even higher with a halftime show featuring George Burns and Mickey Rooney honoring the 100th anniversary of Hollywood.

The demographics of the halftime show changed in 1992 with a performance by New Kids on the Block during Super Bowl XXV, followed by Gloria Estefan the following year, and then Michael Jackson.

During the mid-2000s, music enthusiasts enjoyed live shows from iconic artists such as Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Prince, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen, and The Who. As the years went by, these epic rock group performances evolved into shows featuring top artists like The Black Eyed Peas, Madonna, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, and Maroon 5.

The show’s various themed tributes were phased out when Pepsi became the sponsor from 2013 to 2022. Now, Apple Music has taken the reins for this year. In an interesting turn of events, Rihanna will be creating a documentary about her preparations for the show on Apple TV. It’s all about collaboration, everyone.

The new mother is searching for a meaningful and valuable reason to be apart from her baby. She told the Associated Press, “If I’m going to leave my baby, it must be for something exceptional.” Her son, born on May 19, 2022, with ASAP Rocky, is rumored to be present at the Big Game. It is hoped that he will have noise-canceling headphones.

Rihanna is set to take the stage and perform her newest track, “Lift Me Up,” from the “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” soundtrack, as well as fan favorites like “Love on the Brain,” “Rude Boy,” “Only Girl (in the World),” and “Diamonds.” There are rumors swirling about potential collaborations with Drake on “Work” or “What’s My Name?,” Calvin Harris on “This Is What You Came For,” Mikky Ekko on “Stay,” Jay-Z on “Umbrella,” or Eminem on “Love the Way You Lie” or “The Monster.”

Anticipate numerous outfit changes and the chance to showcase some Fenty lingerie for a confidence boost.

The Shakira/J.Lo show set a record with approximately 20 songs performed, while we anticipate Rihanna will perform fewer songs.
