Ever since Michael Jackson broke it at the 1993 Super Bowl halftime show, every year there has been buzz about whether any artist can match the King of Pop’s performance in Pasadena.
This 2021 in Tampa, it was the turn of the Canadian The Weeknd, who starred in the traditional show in the middle of the game between Tampa Kay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs.
The first reactions to the show were negative and the Spanish media Mundo Deportivo had no mercy with the artist.
“The Canadian artist had generated a lot of expectations for the great shows he has starred in in the past, but the interpreter of songs like ‘Blinding Lights’ did not live up to a very demanding appointment”, they published.
The singer appeared in his traditional red suit and performed his most important and well-known songs including Starboy, The Hills and Can’t Feel My Face.
Beyond the ruthless criticism, the truth is that the 22,000 spectators enjoyed the show.
