Rihanna is back.

The pop superstar returns for her first live performance in over five years and she's doing it in the biggest way possible: as the headliner of the Super Bowl halftime show.

Anticipation has been building since the September announcement confirming Rihanna as the headliner for this year's show. What songs will she sing and who will accompany her on the stage?

Here's everything you need to know about the halftime show, including when the performance is expected to start and more info about the artists.

What time does the Super Bowl LVII halftime show start?

The halftime show is expected to start shortly after 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. Exact timing will depend on the length of the first half of the game itself, which kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET / 3:30 p.m. PT.

Who's performing in the Super Bowl LVII halftime show?


Barbadian singer Rihanna returns from a self-imposed half-decade hiatus from the music industry to headline the halftime show.

Born Robyn Rihanna Fenty, the 34-year-old shot to superstardom as a teenager. Her first album, Music of the Sun, was released in 2005 when Rihanna was 17 years old, reaching No. 10 on thhe Billboard 200. She then released seven more solo albums in the next 10 years, all of which peaked inside the top 10 of the Billboard charts — with her last two albums, Unapologetic and Anti, each reaching No. 1.

That early success saw Rihanna become one of the most prolific artists of this century, with 31 top 10 songs to her name — 14 of which topped the charts. 

Additionally, Rihanna reached No. 1 three times as a featured artist (twice with Eminem and once with T.I.).

After over a decade in the spotlight, Rihanna took a step back from the music industry after her 2016 album Anti. Her first solo release since that album came in 2022 with "Lift Me Up," the lead single from the movie Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Other artists

No special guests have been announced as of February 8, but rumours abound that the likes of Jay-Z, Drake, Calvin Harris, Kendrick Lamar and A$AP Rocky could make an appearance alongside Rihanna.
