I am 42 years old, some would call that young but I’m here to say that I can’t name one hit from The Weeknd. He’s performing the halftime show in the Super Bowl game between the Tampa Bay Tombrady’s and the Kansas City Chiefs. Word on the street is he’s going to play a medley of his #1 song. Song. Singular. How many hits does this guy have, anyway?
I was surprised to hear he was headlining halftime but, like I said I’m old, and me not understanding this choice might be more of a reflection on me than it is on The Weeknd. Will this halftime show go down as one of the greatest? I have my doubts, but until that is decided, here is a list of my favorite halftime shows. Do you have a favorite not on this list? Comment below.
- U2 after September 11th, 2001. Tragedy strikes America and it’s reflected in moving tributes in the unforgettable performance from U2.
2. The man, the myth, the Prince. His was an amazing show. Honestly, I didn’t appreciate his talent and legacy back then, but now that I’m older (have I mentioned I’m old yet?), I can understand the magnitude of this rainy performance that just could NOT be stopped.
I think the list of my least favorite shows would be a lot longer, but for now we’ll leave it on a positive note.
What do you think of The Weeknd performing in this championship game? Did he hit a homerun*?
