Rihanna’s Performance at The Super Bowl Halftime Show Becomes The Most Watched of All

Rihanna is known for breaking all records and look what she did now! Rihanna‘s Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show is now officially the most-watched halftime show performance of all time.

This was her first live performance in five years, and it attracted 121.017 million viewers during the broadcast. Not only that, according to Nielsen’s report, the Super Bowl LVII between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles was the most-watched Super Bowl in history.

Nielsen revised this year’s original figure of 113.1 million by 2 million. This happened “after a review that revealed encoding irregularities as well as issues with out-of-home measurement.” The new 115.1 million figure went on to break the record of the 2015 Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks, which was estimated to have 114.442 million viewers. The figure also managed to surpass that of the 2017 Super Bowl between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots, which had 113.668 million viewers. The 2017 Super Bowl held the most-watched record out of Fox Sports’ 10 Super Bowl broadcasts, but nothing can beat Rihanna’s live performance which garnered most views.

During her live performance, she performed her hits like ‘Only Girl (in the world)’, ‘ We Found Love’, ‘S&M’, ‘Rude Boy’ and ‘Work’ among others. In her set, she also revealed that she was pregnant with her second child! Before the performance, Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty lingerie and clothing brand sold ‘Rihanna concert interrupted by a football game, weird but whatever’ T-shirts as part of its game day collection. This also turned out to be true because millions more people tuned into her ‘concert’ than the game.
