The big event of the day is the party of Super bowl LV between Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It is still in play and has a partial victory for the Buccaneers by 31-9 as the third quarter plays out. The long-awaited and always striking halftime show featured the Canadian artist The Weeknd, who gave a show featuring his main popular songs.
After halftime, the game had the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as victorious, who prevailed with authority against the Kansas City Chiefs. Beyond sports, the Super Bowl is a very popular event in the United States and around the world, moving millions in terms of audience and profits. One of its extra sporting attractions is the halftime show, in which the famous artist The Weeknd was the protagonist.
Artist Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, better known as The Weeknd, began his show in a car on a Las Vegas set in one of the stadium’s grandstands. The Canadian musician performed some of his greatest hits accompanied by a host of masked dancers and a fireworks and lights show. First he performed ‘Starboy’, then ‘The Hills’, passing through different parts of the stadium.
Later he went through a closed place at Raymond James Stadium with many lights where he performed ‘I can’t feel my face’, surrounded by mirrors and dancers. Then he interpreted ‘I feeling coming’, a moment where the screens reflected a starry sky and the moon, along with an immense amount of fireworks. About 22 thousand fans were able to attend and enjoy the show that culminated with their great success ‘Blinding Lights’, a song that tops Billboard magazine’s ‘Hota 100’ list.
Despite the fact that on television it was appreciated as a correct show in terms of sound, several users of social networks criticized some issues of the show. The criticisms of The Weeknd were pointed out in an audio lag and a probable playback, mainly in the first minutes of the show, where they argued that the audio of the instruments was uncoordinated to what was seen on TV. For this show, the artist invested 7 million dollars, according to various sources.
Emmy Jesse Collins, executive producer of the halftime show, said in the preview that he wanted a show “unique and reflects the creativity that we all put into the process to help translate the unique vision of The Weeknd.” Now The Weeknd joins the list of great artists who passed through this important event. Such as: Madonna, Beyoncé, Coldplay, Katy Perry, U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez and more.
