This year's Super Bowl halftime show was one for the ages. It featured Eminem, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg in an unforgettable Los Angeles-themed performance. Somehow, the Super Bowl 2023 halftime performance could be even bigger.
According to a report from Variety, Taylor Swift will play the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show. The game, meanwhile, is being played at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
"When the NFL announced at midnight ET that Apple Music is the new sponsor of the Super Bowl Halftime Show, the Swift-iverse went into overdrive speculating that Taylor Swift will be the performer: The announcement was made at midnight, Taylor releases her new music at midnight (er, like 99% of all major artists in the streaming age) and her new album is called 'Midnights.' ... And finally, three sources close to the situation tell Variety that it’s happening," said Bryan Bedder of Variety.
If true, a massive score by the NFL.
Like her or not, Taylor Swift is one of the biggest names in the music industry. Plus, she will pull viewers in who wouldn't normally watch the Super Bowl.
Is Taylor Swift the right pick for the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show?
Update: We've got a source-off, folks.
TMZ is now reporting Taylor Swift will not be next year's halftime performer.
"Taylor Swift fans might think their favorite musician is lined up to play the next Super Bowl Halftime show, but it just ain't true ... TMZ has learned," said TMZ.
This story will be update once an official announcement has been made.
