What Time is the Super Bowl Halftime Show? Performers, Songs, How Long & How to Watch


The Super Bowl halftime show is always worth a watch, one way or another. Don’t have FOMO! Here’s all you need on 2023’s performance.

One half down, one to go. Time to load up on snacks, plop in front of the TV, and either belt along with the performance or grumpily tell everyone you don’t know what has happened to the art of music over the last decade (don’t be that person, please).

Here’s everything you need to know about the Super Bowl performance in 2023 for Super Bowl XLII.

What time is the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2023?

There is no set time for the Super Bowl Halftime show because halftime comes at an unpredictable time. At risk of stating the obvious, the performance happens once the first half is completed. About 6-7 minutes after the first half ends are allotted for an incredibly chaotic stage setup. Shortly after that, the performance begins.

How long is the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2023?

The Super Bowl Halftime Show is typically just under 15 minutes long. It ranges between 12 minutes on the low end and 14:45 on the higher end.

Who is performing in the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2023?

Rihanna was announced as the Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show headliner in September 2022. She posted a photo of her holding an official NFL football on her Instagram with no caption to tease.

The NFL later announced officially that RiRi was the headliner.

It’s rare that a Super Bowl performance goes without cameos. Here’s who to expect as possibilites in this year’s performance:

  • A$AP Rocky (Rihanna’s partner)
  • Jay-Z (plenty of collabs between the two, plus Jay-Z is partnered with the NFL. ‘Umbrella’ is a must if he comes out)
  • Drake (several features between the two)
  • Paul McCartney (one song between the two, and McCartney would help bridge the gap between age demographics)
  • Kendrick Lamar (“Loyalty” feature, plus Lamar was on last year’s show)
  • Eminem (“Love the Way You Lie” feature)
  • Future (several features)
  • SZA (“Consideration” feature)
  • T.I. (“Live Your Life” feature)

TMZ reported that there was a list of 50 possible co-performers in September being considered, with almost everyone Rihanna has performed with being a possibility. It’s likely that at this point the list is whittled down if not confirmed, but there is no public knowledge about who she’ll have with her on stage.

What songs are being played in the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2023?

For now, we have no idea what songs are being played! That’s part of the fun of the show, isn’t it?

Here are her top-played songs on Apple Music:

  1. Needed Me
  2. Work (feat. Drake)
  3. Wild Thoughts (DJ Khaled)
  4. LOYALTY. (Kendrick Lamar)
  5. Love on the Brain
  6. Too Good (Drake)
  7. Take Care (Drake)
  8. Umbrella (feat. JAY Z)
  9. Sex with Me
  10. This Is What You Came For (Calvin Harris)

If I have to take a stab at a setlist, though, here’s what I would predict:

  1. Pour it Up
  2. Bi–h Better Have My Money
  3. Pon de Replay
  4. Where Have You Been
  5. Work + Too Good + Take Care (Drake cameo)
  6. Umbrella+Run This Town (JAY Z cameo)
  7. FourFiveSeconds (Paul McCartney cameo)
  8. We Found Love + This Is What You Came For (Calvin Harris cameo)

This setlist would start things out with high intensity on Pour It Up and BBHMM. Then it hits some classics in the middle between Where Have You Been and Umbrella. We unite some age groups with FourFiveSeconds, and close out with a slower song in Love on the Brain and a classic on This Is What You Came For and We Found Love with Calvin Harris. That’ll resonate with the pop lovers.
