One of the main reasons that the Super Bowl is such a highly anticipated event for football and non-football fans alike is the annual Super Bowl Halftime Show. The headliner for Super Bowl LVII was Rihanna, and many offered their opinions on the pop superstar’s performance.

Rihanna, came out to her hit song “B*tch Better Have my Money,” which was actually +1100 to be her first song of the night for Super Bowl Halftime Show prop bettors.

During her performance, she played a number of iconic songs, including “Only Girl(In the World),” “Rude Boy,” “Umbrella,” “We Found Love” and “Work” among many others.

Overall, it seems like the reaction to Rihanna’s performance amongst the NFL world is overwhelmingly positive, with many believing that this performance was among the best in recent memory.

Many thought ahead of the performance that there may be features from a number of prominent artists, including Jay-Z, Drake, or Rihanna’s boyfriend and hip-hop artist A$AP Rocky.

However, Rihanna rode solo on this performance, and many credited her for doing so and performing well by most standards.

However, the Super Bowl Halftime Show did not go without controversy. Many fans took notice of a bit of a baby bump to Rihanna, which many speculated about on social media.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky previously had a baby back in May of 2022, and speculation is that they could be expecting a second. Regardless, this performance appears to be a memorable one to many watching Super Bowl LVII at home.
