The Super Bowl Half Time Show is one of the most anticipated performances of the year. It's always quite an honor to be asked to headline the show. The artist is really just doing the show for exposure, since they don't get paid for their performance. The NFL does cover the production costs to put on the show. These are usually filled with special effects and elaborate stages, so I'm sure that costs a pretty penny.

The Weeknd has the coveted spot for the 2021 Half Time Show. With only four studio albums out, some people question whether he was the best choice. His single 'Blinding Lights' was Billboard's Number 1 Hot 100 Song of the Year 2020, and if you ventured on to TikTok, you have no doubt seen the dance that goes with it.
