Some ask when the Super Bowl starts, but you're here to figure out when the halftime show begins.LIVE: Maybe you're not a big football fan.Maybe you just want to watch Rihanna. Maybe you want there to witne s history, whether it be a viral meme moment or the next wardrobe malfunction.Whatever it might be, the is, typically, worth watching. This year, Rihanna makes that exceptionally true, when she breaks her five-year performance hiatus to take center stage at the Apple halftime show in Arizona.The Grammy-award winning artist is set to perform at Super Bowl 57, and it's unclear who (if anyone) will join her. Last year, the NFL put on a spectacle at halftime, with five artists Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem and Mary J. Blige as well as a special guest in 50 Cent, performing at SoFi Stadium. This year, Rihanna is set to fly solo but as we've seen with the halftime show in years past, there's always a surprise or two in the works.MORE:Here's when you can tune in for this year's halftime show: 8 p.m. ET (approximate time)With Super Bowl 57 starting at 6:30 p.m. ET, halftime should be ~8 p.m. ET. That's an inexact time, considering NFL games are pretty fluid. The first half should wrap up around 8 o'clock ET, however, making way for the halftime show soon after.The halftime is usually about 20 minutes, so the performance should be roughly 10 songs, some truncated and remixed. Leading into Super Bowl Sunday, the only confirmed performer for the halftime show is Grammy-winning artist, Rihanna. She was announced as the headliner for the show in 2022. This is the first time that Rihanna is performing a concert in five years.Typically, halftime shows featuring guest appearances, sometimes surprise guests. As of Feb. 6, there was no word if Rihanna will be joined on-stage by another performer.If Rihanna is the sole performer, then that will be the first time since The Weeknd's performance that there was a single artist on stage. It would also mark one of the few times in the last 20 years that there have been a single performer on stage.MORE: Katy Perry (Super Bowl 49, 2015), The Who (Super Bowl 44, 2010), Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers (Super Bowl 42, 2008), The Rolling Stones (Super Bowl 40, 2006), Paul McCartney (Super Bowl 39, 2005) and U2 (Super Bowl 36, 2002) all performed without special guests or shared headliners.That would also mark a drastic departure from Super Bowl 56, when Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar and Anderson .Paak performed at SoFi Stadium. Performers actually don't get paid for the halftime show. The NFL covers the expenses of production, and also the performer's travel costs. The performers, though, don't get a check for their work.In 2021, The Weeknd's production costs exceeded the NFL's allowance, and he spent $7 million of his own money to foot the bill for the event.MORE: The NFL announced that country artist Chris Stapleton would be offering his vocals for Super Bowl 57's national anthem.Stapleton has racked up countle s streams over the course of his 20-plus-year career, thrusting himself to the top of the country charts in the proce s.His critically acclaimed debut, "Traveller", was hailed as "encapsulating the grit of life, turning it into a hell of a journey," by Billboard. He has since earned endle s acclaim, reaching he top of the Billboard charts on four separate occasions and collecting a host of accolades.
