FutureStarrBeyonce's Former Choreographer Calls Rihanna's #SuperBowl Halftime Show 'The Best'
Many musicians strive to headline a halftime show during the Super Bowl. Artists such as Beyonce, Katy Perry, Coldplay and Lady Gaga have all performed in the past.
The Super Bowl is an epic American football game with millions of viewers watching it on television. Additionally, the show offers various entertainment throughout the duration of play to keep viewers occupied.
Rihanna was the star of this year's Super Bowl Halftime Show and she left us all wanting more. Her 13-minute set featured 12 hits, accompanied by an army of backup dancers wearing white jumpsuits and hoodies - literally a football field full!
Although the show was a huge hit, one part of it has become something of an internet meme: her backup dancers. These puffy marshmallow-like dancers have become sensationalized for all the wrong reasons.
First and foremost, they appear to be incongruent. The video, posted to Twitter on Friday, has now received over one million views - evidence that many are dissatisfied with how things transpired.
Super Bowl Halftime Shows are huge opportunities for artists. Not only do they get paid millions of dollars to perform, but it's also an opportunity to showcase their latest music.
But the most crucial element is that it provides them with a platform. Artists receive so much attention on the show that it has an immediate effect on their streaming sales and overall income.
Therefore, having an impressive set is key for them. This year's halftime show featured several artists such as Mary J Blige, Bruno Mars and Coldplay.
Another interesting aspect of the show is that it was choreographed by Parris Goebel, a Kiwi dancer renowned for her viral moves on YouTube and social media platforms. It appears she may have provided Rihanna with inspiration for her Super Bowl Halftime Show routine!
New Zealand-born choreographer Leilani Grace has achieved such success that she's been booked by celebrities such as Beyonce and U2. Her performances at the Grammys and Oscars were a big hit, with praise even coming from some of music's biggest names.
The Super Bowl halftime show is always one of the most anticipated moments during NFL season. Fans come out to cheer their favorite celebrities on, often sharing jokes or memes about it online. This year, Rihanna's performance had everyone talking - everyone was buzzing!
She performed some of her biggest hits, such as Diamonds, Umbrella, We Found Love and Rude Boy. Additionally, she took time out of the performance to retouch her makeup using products from her Fenty Beauty range.
Rihanna has earned a reputation for her fashion sense and recently debuted her own makeup brand, Fenty, as well as a fashion line under LVMH. For the Super Bowl she donned a bright red jumpsuit with matching nail polish.
She was performing with dancers wearing baggy puffy jackets and sunglasses, prompting many to poke fun at them. These outfits drew comparisons to Oompa Loompas from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971), hazmat workers and Chinese spy balloons.
People often create memes during the Super Bowl, and Rihanna's halftime performance was no exception. In 13 minutes, she kept the crowd engaged with a series of hits while flying high above on her own platform.
She concluded her performance by soaring above the stadium once more, looking like she was among diamonds in the sky. Her boyfriend A$AP Rocky stood proudly by her side as he recorded footage on his phone as the singer completed her performance.
Her performance was a hit and fans have welcomed her return to the stage with open arms. Some have even praised it as one of the best halftime shows they have ever witnessed!
Others, however, felt the show was a failure due to not providing fans with the guest appearances and costume changes they had hoped for.
Rihanna's dancers were the star of the show, and now they have become major memes thanks to their puffed-up jackets. Some have likened them to Damian from Mean Girls or Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory characters.
Rihanna delivered an unforgettable performance during her Super Bowl Halftime Show, providing fans with what they had hoped for: an amazing performance. The Barbados-born singer, fashion designer, and businesswoman performed a medley of hits from her eight studio albums including 2016's Anti.
Rihanna made a stunning entrance in her red ensemble for her first live performance since giving birth to her son last year, performing excerpts of hits like "Umbrella" and "Only Girl (In the World") as well as some unique mashups between different songs. At 13 minutes long, the 34-year-old sang an array of hits including "Umbrella," "Only Girl (In the World") and several others.
This fast-paced set was visually impressive, with her dancers performing on floating stages as she performed aerial acrobatics.
Her performance was one of the most watched shows in NBA history, drawing an average audience of 118.7 million viewers according to Luminate Data - more than Katy Perry's 2015 performance which averaged 112.3 million viewers and Lady Gaga's 2017 show which drew an average 115 million viewers.
Even though she hasn't released a new album in seven years, the Barbados-born star still boasts an extensive catalog of hits that could fill a decade's worth of halftime performances. As such, when she took to the Super Bowl stage for her first ever halftime show in seven years, it was certain to leave an indelible mark on those in attendance.
Rihanna used the 13-minute show as a platform to prove she's still an icon in pop culture, and delivered an incredibly strong performance. Clad in red and sweeping her hand over her belly to announce her second pregnancy, she performed an electrifying medley of her hits with confidence and abandon. It was truly one of a kind.
This performance marked her first live show since giving birth to her son in May of last year and it was also the first time she was publicly seen after giving birth - which many believed was one of the primary reasons why she chose to perform at the Super Bowl.
Though she performed an impeccable set list, some fans felt her Super Bowl halftime show was a letdown. One major complaint was her failure to criticize NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during the national anthem.
Rihanna faced criticism for not returning to the spotlight immediately after announcing her pregnancy, which happened just days before her performance. While she didn't explicitly mention it during the show, a representative later confirmed that the star is expecting her second child.
The Barbadian star performed her entire set without changing costumes or inviting guests onto stage. Her repertoire featured hits like "Umbrella" and "Diamonds," among others.
Rihanna's first live Super Bowl performance in five years had fans excited and anticipating her return. Her icy-queen gaze, captivating voice and electrifying DGAF energy made her an instant fan favorite.
Her passion and devotion to her fans were so strong that one of them even managed to leap out of the stands and join her onstage for "Run This Town," an unusual occurrence in a stadium.
Rihanna made headlines during her time in the spotlight as an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump. She denounced his 2017 "Muslim ban", which barred citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering America, labeling him as "the most mentally ill person in America" and asked his campaign team to stop using her music at rallies.
While some were critical of Rihanna's political views, others were delighted to see her back on stage and praised her performance. Within 24 hours after returning, she received over 1.5 million Instagram followers and searches for her brand Fenty Beauty increased by 833%.
Former President Donald Trump wasted no time criticizing Rihanna's performance on social media. Trump, who has never been a fan of hers, took to his faltering social media platform Truth Social and labeled her Super Bowl halftime show an 'EPIC FAIL'. He further accused her of insulting more than half of our nation with her foul and insulting language.
