Today, the NFL announced that hip hop and pop star The Weeknd will perform for the Super Bowl LV Halftime Show. The Super Bowl will occur on February 7, 2021 on CBS. The game will kick off at 5:30 Eastern time in Tampa, Florida at Raymond James Stadium.

Last year, the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Fransisco 49ers 31 to 20 in Super Bowl LIV. Shakira and Jennifer Lopez performed at halftime. They played that Super Bowl in Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

Super Bowl LV Changes

Before everything was said and done, there were a few adjustments made to the details of this year’s Super Bowl. Initially, the game was to be held in Los Angeles and was to be broadcasted on NBC. Due to the delay in opening the Chargers and Rams new stadium, the NFL unanimously voted to move the game to Tampa.

The 2022 Super Bowl LVI will kickoff in Los Angeles. Likewise, NBC will broadcast next year’s Super Bowl. They decided to do so in order to have the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics in the same year on NBC.

The advantage of having the game broadcasted on CBS is that we get the all-star team of broadcasters in Tony Romo and Jim Nance. While many did not support Romo as a quarterback, everyone immediately noticed and appreciated his booth personality and play-by-play ability. On a couple of instances fans trolled Romo for the way he addressed injured players, but other than that, most have been pleasantly surprised with his newly found talent.

NFL Final Weeks

As the regular season of the NFL approaches the final stretch, playoff hopes and favorites begin to take shape. Most betting websites give the Kansas City Chiefs the best odds at +350 to repeat their championship. They currently sit atop the AFC West at 8-1. The Chiefs are followed closely in odds to win the Super Bowl by the Pittsburg Steelers, who are currently undefeated. They lead the AFC North. In the NFC, the Saints have been red hot of late and lead the NFC for odds to win the Super Bowl.
