Super Bowl LV will be held this Sunday, Feb. 7 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida. Grammy award-winning artist The Weeknd will be the headline performer for the Halftime Show, which is presented by Pepsi and Roc Nation. Now the Weeknd has revealed he will be the only performer. 

According to Entertainment Weekly, The Weeknd,  whose 2020 album After Hours is the no. 1 most streamed R&B album of all time, said in a Feb. 4 interview, "I've been reading a lot of rumors. I wouldn't bet on it. There wasn't any room to fit it in the narrative and the story I was telling in the performance. So, there's no special guests, no."
