That's true, but other advertisers paid as much as $7,000,000 for a 30 second ad, so I'd say her 13 minute spot was worth SOMEthing.

Mel ... this is true. No money paid to entertainer.

I would think the dancers were paid ?

As well as the few musicians on stage were paid ? (nothing plugged in).

I think the dancers have a union and musicians have a union as well.

I would also assume/ hope that dancers and musicians are paid well.

I saw the drummer’s drum set matched Rihanna’s red outfit.

Sorry, to say I didn’t care much for the performance, and oddly neither did my cat, who was setting on my lap. He started to growl and hiss!

Chas, I don't know why I typed your name in that statement, and I corrected it to DanO, which is who's statement I was referring to. Personally, I was not excited about the halftime show, and went back to work on one of my woodworking projects until halftime was over. Sorry about the mistake and I corrected it.

As for the money, I'm working on my second $billion - I gave up on the first. wink

Gary cool

Perhaps the cat would like songs from the movie "Cats" ?

Paul, (regarding Rhiana's bit) I didn't like the half-time show either....but for maybe different reasons.
1. I don't really like that type of music.

2. I thought the amount of reverb was beyond annoying. Maybe it's my system but I have a MONSTER ($1800.00) sound system hooked up to a 75" TV and despite trying to adjust the sound quality, it still sounded (to me) like it was being broadcast from the Swiss Alps. I don't think it was my system 'cause the rest of the broadcast sounded fine. Anybody else feel that way?

Gary...."working on my second billion----" smile smile smile , loved that line; I may have to borrow it smile.

Chas, both you and I are out of her demographic fan base ( age wise) so it doesn’t matter what we think,anyways.

However, I thought it was interesting having a pregnant woman perform at such a high profile event, possibly an empowering image for women everywhere which is a good thing.

As with everything at the Super Bowl other than the game itself, everything is simply about selling you something. There’s no intention to ‘entertain’ you, merely to keep you in your seats for as long as they possibly can, while you watch a thinly disguised advertisement for Apple products (or did no one notice the similarity to iPhones with the platforms the ‘entertainers’ were on..?)

Plus, it might be noted, no one promised a halftime ’concert’, it’s a SHOW. Their words. There’s no mention of a ‘live’ performance. Yeah, Rihanna’s mic might be live at times if they got time for something spontaneous, but it’s all tracks…

Thing is, most TV show and movie ‘live music’ is equally dubbed or overdubbed, mixed post-fact, auto-tuned and corrected. Is it only the Super Bowl halftime show that gets a brickbat for not being ‘live’ any more? ‘Live’ is a thing of the past. The minute we decided that technical perfection was more important than slightly flawed honesty, actual ’live’ broadcast and movie music disappeared (about the time that digital editing and Auto-tune appeared).

Why do we expect anything different at the Superbowl?

I spoke to a friend who is a "grizzled" LA sessions keyboardist; Ed Roth. He told me the entire halftime show is completely prerecorded.

Years ago, The "Red Hot Chili Peppers" prerecorded their show. The bass player "Flea" purposely protested by going on stage with no cable. At the 7:40 mark ..RHC plays. Everything you hear is prerecorded. Even Bruno Mars https://youtu.be/dJS_fTEUKFA
