The event will be taking place at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. The stadium is the home ground of Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who’re gearing up to take on the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. It’s going to be the first time a team will be playing in their home ground at the Super Bowl, nationwide.
The most anticipated sports event is all set to kick off as scheduled with strict Coronavirus protocols. Around 22,000 sports-freaks and admirers are allowed to attend the event, along with 7,500 vaccinated health-professionals, in case anything goes haywire.
Just like always, fans will not only witness the most exciting American football competition but also a number of electrifying halftime performances by some brilliant celebrities. We have seen Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry charging the crowd at previous Super Bowl events.
Here’s everything you need to know about the event and the five promises we look forward to on February 2021:
Who’s going to perform at Super Bowl 2021?
Sports freak or not, half-time performances are something we all look forward to. It feels like it was just yesterday when two divas – Shakira and Jennifer Lopez – rocked the world by their amazing half-time performances at the event last year.
Fans are expecting something similar in this year’s event, too.
The Weeknd is already onboard as this year’s Super Bowl halftime performer. The Starboy singer is ready to take on the popular stage and pump up the spirit of attendees with his famous numbers like “I Can’t Feel My Face,” “In Your Eyes,” and “I Feel It Coming.”

Last month, the Canadian singer (real name Abel Tesfaye) made the news for his shocking face transformation in the latest music video “Save Your Tears.” Thankfully, it was just for the video and not for a lifetime! But it does indicate that nobody can do surprises better than The Weeknd! So, let’s see what the singer has in-store for us at the event!
The Weeknd has been the center of controversies because of his bold stance against Grammy Awards. Despite dropping a hit album “After Hours” in 2020, the singer has not been nominated for the upcoming Grammys. The 30-year-old singer threw a major rant over social media, accusing the Awards of “remaining corrupt.”
Later, the Grammys' President responded to the accusations: “We understand that The Weeknd is disappointed at not being nominated. I was surprised and can empathize with what he’s feeling.”
Anyways, this incident didn’t stop him from winning the hearts of his fans. The singer has already started teasing about his big performance at the the event, giving a glimpse at what is coming to the halftime show. He uploaded his new Pepsi’s advert on his Twitter Account, which features fans singing his popular number “Blinding Lights.”
In November, he broke the news about his performance at Super Bowl 2021 to his fans on social media. He wrote, “I am humbled, honored and ecstatic to be the center of that infamous stage. We all grow up watching the world’s biggest acts playing the Super Bowl and one can only dream of being in that position.”
There are also going to be some surprising guest performances at the event... Meanwhile, watch this mind-blowing performance by Lady Gaga at 2017's Super Bowl.
And Katy Perry's at 2016's event:
Amanda Gorman will be performing at the Super Bowl!
Amanda Gorman will be the first performing poet at the major sports event.
As per the reports, she will be reciting her original poems to pay a tribute to three legendary personalities who served on the frontline during coronavirus pandemic such as educator Trimaine Davis, Marine veteran James Martin, nurse manager Suzie Dorner. They will also be participating in the coin toss activity on February 7th at Tampa, Florida.
“These heroes are symbolic of the thousands of health-care professionals, educators, and veterans throughout our country who continue to care for, heal and support those in need during this pandemic,” The NFL said in a statement.
The 22-year-old poet and activist made the headlines last month following her recital of the poem “The Hill We Climb” at the US Presidential inauguration 2021.
The young laureate is going big again with her upcoming recital at Super Bowl 2021, where she will recite a poem honoring the trio for their contribution in fighting against the pandemic prior to the game begins that will be broadcasted and streamed from the Raymond James Stadium.
