The Weeknd will be performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2021!
Today, the Toronto native announced that he will be performing at the Pepsi Super Bowl LV Halftime Show.
After hinting at a huge announcement for the last few days, The Weeknd has officially broken the news.
“Performing on the iconic stage,” said the singer. “See you 02/07/21.”
In a press release, The Weeknd added: “We all grow up watching the world’s biggest acts playing the Super Bowl and one can only dream of being in that position. I’m humbled, honored, and ecstatic to be the center of that infamous stage this year.”
Jay-Z had a major role in recruiting The Weeknd for this year’s show. He said: “The Weeknd has introduced a sound all his own. His soulful uniqueness has defined a new generation of greatness in music and artistry. This is an extraordinary moment in time and the Pepsi Super Bowl LV Halftime Show is going to be an extraordinary experience with an extraordinary performer.”
Last year, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira tore down the roof with their electrifying performance at the Super Bowl Halftime Show. It will be interesting to see how The Weeknd spices things up with his performance.
Congratulations to The Weeknd!
