Rihanna fans rejoice! You can watch her EPIC Super Bowl LVII Halftime show right here in Australia.
While there are certainly NFL fans down under who come together with a day beer to watch the game, on a broader scale, it’s the coveted performance that people worldwide look forward to the most.
As the official sponsor for the show, Apple Music released a trailer featuring the 34-year-old performer, announcing that it had been “2190 days” (over six years) since the nine-time Grammy winner had performed on the sporting stage.
However, updated information from TIME states that on the day she performs, it will actually be 2,572 days… but who’s counting?
When is the Super Bowl LVII?
The Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs will headline an action-packed day of NFL, which takes place on Sunday, February 12 in the US.
This means that down under, we will be able to watch all of the action on Monday, February 13 and hopefully witness Aussie Jordan Mailata (Philadelphia Eagles) become the second Australian to ever be a part of a winning Super Bowl team.
When is the Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show?
If you want to tune in to see Barbados-born Rihanna slay, the halftime show will kick off around 12.00 pm AEDT.
Since she’s known for high-energy performance, her mash-up could include hits like Only Girl (In The World), Work, B**ch Better Have My Money, Needed Me, Rude Boy or S&M.
We’re also hoping for a powerful ballad in the mix, like the stunning Born Again from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack
But if we’re really being honest, we just want a super-sized production of Umbrella featuring black, glittery brollies, 100 backup dancers and Tom Holland reprising his viral Lip Sync Battle video.
There’s also a rumour that Rihanna could even release her long-awaited ninth studio album streaming platform immediately following her live performance, which, as Hilary Duff says: “Hey now! Hey now! This is what dreams are made of!”
