Early February means one thing: Super Bowl. And this year too, despite the restrictions imposed by the Covid, the event was spectacular as usual. In 2020 Shakira e Jennifer Lopez they gave us a creepy halftime show, but The Weeknd has raised the bar even more with breathtaking scenery. This would have been enough, but there was much more: from the pre-match concert of Miley Cyrus up to the spot Timothee Chalamet in the role of Edgar Scissorhands, passing through a sudden invasion of the field and victory for the home team, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, led by Tom Brady which reaches 7 titles.
If you missed something given the time the Super Bowl was broadcast in Italy, it’s time to make a juicy recap with the highlights:
THE FULL STADIUM
Looking at the pictures of the Raymond James Stadium of Tampa, in Florida, where the final between Tampa Bay Buccaneers e Kansas City ChiefsIndeed, it felt like we were back in a pre coronavirus era with full stadiums. Well, strange but true, but it is an optical illusion: most of the people present (about 30 thousand) were made of cardboard. Some celebs have also sprung up among the fake audience, like DJ Khaled e Lady Gaga. The fans who followed the match live were vaccinated medical personnel and players, family members and staff of the Nfl, the league that organizes the football championship. I admit it: I had a great fall.
THE CONCERT OF MILEY CYRUS
None of us had any doubts that Miley would give us emotions and it did: Before the game started she performed for two hours, wearing super cool football inspired outfits and singing with Billy Idol e Joan Jett. The concert, dedicated to doctors and health workers, was broadcast live and exclusively on TikTok: it is the first time in the history of the platform. During the performance of Party in Usa he also sent a message to Britney Spears (also given the latest revelations of New York Times about the relationship with her father, her legal guardian), saying to her: «We adore Britney! ». Finally, tears on the notes of Wrecking Ball.
THE POETRY OF AMANDA GORMAN
After the inauguration ceremony of Joe Biden, another chance for Amanda Gorman to show his immense talent and his verses. Also during the pre-game, the poet played the Choir of captains, a celebration dedicated to three Americans who distinguished themselves during the pandemic. Exciting and thrilling, like hers The hill we climb.
STAR-SPANGLED BANNER E AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL
Could they ever miss the national anthem? Obviously not. This year it was the turn of Jazmine Sullivan e Eric Church who sang a very personal version of Star-Spangled Banner. There was then to follow them H.E.R who sang America the beautiful. A pinch of innovation in the more traditional part of the event.
GISELE BÜNDCHEN PRIMA FAN
Tom Brady, husband of the super model, he is in his tenth Super Bowl and the seventh title won. Practically a veteran and, therefore, it has become quite usual the good luck via social media of the model with the children. The same goes for the post-match celebrations, documented in the Instagram stories. With such a fan how can you go wrong?
THE FIELD INVASION
What does it take to move a game even more? A nice invasion of the field. A man with a style costume Borat pink entered the field running. He managed to do it for a few meters before being tackled by the cops. Social networks, of course, have been quite wild with memes.
LO SPOT DI TIMOTHÉE CHALAMET
The Super Bowl is the television event of the year, followed by over 100 million viewers. It is therefore obvious that the big brands compete to package the best spot of the various advertising blocks. This year, sorry for everyone else, but the winner is Cadillac with Timothée Chalamet e Winona Ryder. Our Timmy he took on the role of Edgar, son of Edward scissor hands, the character played by Johnny depp in the film of the same name Tim Burton. The poor Edgar he faces everyday life with one more difficulty: his sharp hands. The video went viral and there are already those who are asking for a sequel to the film.
L’HALF TIME SHOW DI THE WEEKND
It has been highly anticipated since it was announced a few months ago and The Weeknd he set up a crazy show: lights, choreography, music, nothing was left to chance. He thought about revealing some behind the scenes James Corden which, in his Late Show, showed how much his contribution was fundamental for the success of the show.
Two moments were particularly appreciated: that of the wink and that of the labyrinth.
When at the end of the evening the lights came back on in the club and you had to go and retrieve the friends lost hours before while the crowd ran to the wardrobe #TheWeeknd #HalfTimeShow pic.twitter.com/Nd4Jb3PY7h
