Last season’s Super Bowl halftime show was considered by many to be the greatest ever, and the NFL will struggle to top it. Taylor Swift may be up for the challenge.
Swift is set to headline the Super Bowl LVII halftime show, according to Variety’s Jem Aswad.
Many fans began speculating late Thursday night that Swift would be performing at the upcoming Super Bowl. The NFL announced at midnight that Apple Music was the new sponsor of the halftime show after a multi-year deal with Pepsi expired. As Aswad noted, Swift releases all of her new songs at midnight and has a new album called “Midnights.” This may all be coincidental, but it looks like Swift and the NFL have a deal in place.
The Super Bowl halftime show in February featured a cast of hip-hop and R&B stars, including Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and Mary J. Blige. It was very popular, as expected. At least one Cincinnati Bengals player even stayed on the field to watch.
Swift ticks the box of being one of the most popular musicians in the world.
