Who is performing during halftime of Super Bowl 55?

A Canadian singer-songwriter whose full name is Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, The Weeknd will perform during halftime of Super Bowl 55.

The Weeknd will be following up a 2020 halftime show that featured Shakira and Jennifer Lopez in Miami.

There haven’t been announcements about supplementary performers, although usually a second star finds their way onto the stage at some point during the halftime show.

What time does the Super Bowl halftime show start?

The Super Bowl halftime show will likely start shortly after 8 p.m. ET. The game itself kicks off at about 6:30, so the first half should end about 90 minutes later.

Do performers get paid for the Super Bowl halftime show?

The Super Bowl halftime performers are never paid for their performances. The NFL does cover the cost of the performance.

Who is singing the national anthem at Super Bowl 55?

The NFL announced on Jan. 19 that the national anthem singers at Super Bowl 55 will be Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan. Church is a highly acclaimed country artist, while Sullivan has been a fixture of R&B charts as a top-notch vocalist.

As part of the pregame festivities, there’ll also be a rendition of America the Beautiful. That’ll be sung by H.E.R., another R&B artist who’s received 13 Grammy nominations over the past three years.
