Published: Sunday 12th Feb 2023 by Rashad

After years of absence from the musical stage, ‘Work‘ singer Rihanna finally got back to work (much to the delight of her beloved fans #theNavy) by rocking Glendale’s State Farm Stadium as the headliner for the Super Bowl LVII halftime show.

Drawing on nearly two decades worth of hits including the likes of ‘We Found Love,’ ‘Only Girl in the World,’ ‘Rude Boy,’ and more to wow the crowd, Rih dazzled viewers with a jaw-dropping array of pyrotechnics, cutting edge technology, and – of course – eye-popping fashion

Joining the hallowed halls of history-making headliners Madonna, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Michael and Janet Jackson, Prince, and many others, look inside to see how the 34-year-old handled the stage of the biggest spectacle on Earth.

    Yup. She did it by herself. her fans should be proud. Flawless solo performance

  2. True Tea February 12, 2023

    The music and the dancers did ALL the work while the Queen came on and graced us with her presences.

    Great Show!

      She sung the songs by herself She could have had other music artists on stage with her. She did not. The pressure is on Rihanna not her dancers

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 February 13, 2023

        Yet she folded under pressure and did not deliver. Stood there rubbing her belly whilst miming along to a few chart hits from the days of past.

        My pockets deep and they never end, I still got mo’ money💃

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 February 13, 2023

        No panties coming awwf. My love is gonna cost. ‘Cause ain’t no way that you gon get up in this for free… 🎶

    That was a great reminder of the strength of her music catalogue. Banger after banger. Hands down the strongest collection of bangers out of any female pop/rnb artist. She did well performance wise given her pregnancy.

    Good job.

    Saw the performance on YouTube and I don’t think it was bad as people are saying. Yeah it lacked a little energy but it was aesthetically pleasing. One thing about RiRi though is she has hits that stick like f****** grits. She didn’t even scratch the surface of her catalogue fr

  5. Adele February 13, 2023

    It was super boring. She was lip syncing and the dancing was sloppy. This is the SUPER BOWL where you are supposed to go hard.

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 February 13, 2023

      Adele would be the most boring. You tried it.

      • Adele February 13, 2023

        Nah Adele would have at least sang live. How are you not singing AND your dancing is trash at the SUPERBOWL. Pregnancy or not the performance was lazy as hell.

  6. LaMildred February 13, 2023

    There were rumors going around that she wasn’t attending rehearsals and I’m believing them now. Rihanna didn’t bring it like she should. After a 7 year absence I expected more from her. She’s been lazy can’t even blame that on her fetus. Even Katy Perry had a better halftime show.

  7. Leon Lewis February 13, 2023

    Rihanna is so f****** lazy. Not like she’s a singer or songwriter the least she could do is put on a solid performance for once🙄 She’s always disappointing somehow but congrats on the baby.

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 February 13, 2023

      Exactly. In the words of Donald Trump, “no talent.”

  8. 🤣🤣🤣😂😂😭😭😭😭 February 13, 2023

    Then she had the nerve to say she watched Beyonces SB performance for inspiration …. LMAO this boring mess

  9. Keith February 13, 2023

    After hearing all the criticism, I finally watched. And IMO, Rhianna and team knocked it out of the park. From the staging to the mix of hits, transitions, choreography, camera angles for effect. As others have said, her catalogue is VERY strong…

  10. Yo February 13, 2023

    Lip syncing he the whole show..apart from the last line. What a joke. Terrible really..

  11. RBRT February 13, 2023

    People will hate no matter what. But no one else could do a half time show this slick with a cool, calm and collected approach. Rihanna is an icon, with hit after hit after hit ❤️ red jedi Star Wars vibes ❤️ the only thing I can fault is no new song/album release 😭 patiently waiting

  12. Riley February 13, 2023

    Best show in years. She looked good. The hits are endless. I got a little misty eyed when she performed diamonds. It was too short. It left me wanting more. I have watches it 5 times

  13. Chlöe February 13, 2023

    She looks about 4-5 months pregnant so that means she got knocked up after accepting the sb gig… the belly was her saving grace for such a lackluster performance. I don’t think it wouldn’t been much better if she wasn’t pregnant. Rihanna just isn’t that gworl onstage….

  14. Diabetes UNBOTHERED February 13, 2023

    Am I the only Non Fan that saw nothing wrong with this performance? 🤔 only problem I have is that it as absolutely ZERO REWATCH VALUE just with Any rih performance.

    It was still good in terms of holding its on against the creative sets of the past. Every SB is different and that’s the main importance to me.

    Is this in the top 10 no but neither is Janet’s WACK performance (even minus slip up) and she’s an actual known performer.

    I give it a full 3/5.

  15. Kendrick Slaymar February 13, 2023

    kiiiiiiiii another day another L the boats thot they were gettin n album nd tour only for their gurl to pull a kylie nd give thm a second b****** for a felon they have to pretend to like. AND the bitxh music carrier is OVER to boot.

    • Kendrick Slaymar February 13, 2023


  16. Kendrick Slaymar February 13, 2023

    What a lame way to go out. Just as she came in. Barely any progression in her performances, lackluster energy, mid to bad live vocals. A true representation of what NOT TO DO when it comes to live performances

    • hellokitty February 13, 2023

      @Kendrick – Yuppers. I totally agree.

  17. EH February 13, 2023

    Rihanna was never a great showman, but took the gig knowing she was knocked up again like an alley cat and was able to use it as an excuse to not move at all. Because it’s the perfect excuse.

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 February 13, 2023

      Probably got pregnant on purpose lmaoooooooooooo 🤣

    • HELLOKITTY February 13, 2023

      @EH – No truer words have been spoken. She never intended to do anything to begin with. A wasted opportunity, a waste of time. The game s^cked after the half-time show, Philly THREW the game in my opinion, but before that you had that lame @ss “non-show”. I should have figured Philly was going to lose because Rihanna’s “performance” was a precursor to what was to come.

  18. Ms. Mariah February 13, 2023

    I was soooo underwhelmed. As an almost 20 yr pop veteran Rihanna should be owning any stage she touches. She claims to be this bad b**** but I’ve yet to see that translated on stage. You can tell she doesn’t care and the retirement rumors don’t seem too unfounded after watching that bland mess. Oh and by the way pregnant women aren’t disabled! Pregnant women still work out, run marathons, swim and do normal everyday things! Asking for Rihanna to gibe more energy wasn’t an unfair request smh…. Take y’all L Navy. And that album isn’t coming LOL

    • HELLOKITTY February 13, 2023

      @Mariah – I totally agree. I’m glad to read comments by people who ACTUALLY have a point of view and are not blinded by a celebrity’s star power.

  19. Tongue’Fcukk February 13, 2023

    Most people on here talkin s*** bout the Queen weren’t even in attendance, lmaoo now thats funny
