Who is featuring in this year's Super Bowl Halftime Show?
The Weeknd, one of the more compelling and talented superstars on the world stage, is headlining this year's halftime show.
For many fans, the festivities during the main break offer more intrigue and entertainment than the game itself. A number of the world's biggest and best stars have graced this stage and The Weeknd can't wait to join the club.
"We all grow up watching the world's biggest acts playing the Super Bowl and one can only dream of being in that position. I'm humbled, honoured and ecstatic to be the centre of that infamous stage this year," The Weeknd said in an announcement on NFL.com.
Who will win NFL Super Bowl 55 Bucs vs Chiefs?
With modern marvel Mahomes slinging the pig skin, the Chiefs have been title favourites all season for good reason. He has the controls to the league's most lethal offence and defences face the unenviable "pick your poison" question of whether to focus their attentions on Tyreek Hill or Travis Kelce.
Kansas City's biggest concern is injuries to the offensive line, with starting tackles Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz both out. The Bucs' pass rushers will get some shots at Mahomes but he has had all the answers in a phenomenal start to his career. We're picking the Chiefs to defy Brady some more history and prevail by 10 points.
