Anticipation is reaching a fever pitch for the 2021 Super Bowl Halftime Show, after it was announced The Weeknd would headline the February 7 performance. Now, there’s word more superstars could be dawning the stage.
Christina Aguilera reportedly signed with JAY-Z’s Roc Nation Management, Wednesday. The rapper/entrepreneur’s company serves as executive producer for the Halftime Show. There’s a very real possibility America could witness the sultry sounds of The Weeknd paired with Christina’s booming siren song. Think of Aguilera belting out the chorus to “Blinding Lights,” or The Weeknd performing a break on the 2002 classic “Dirrty.”
But the possibilities don’t stop there.
Megan Thee Stallion, Mariah Carey, Nick Jonas and Haim are all Roc Nation clients, and each could appear on stage for a super collaboration the likes of which we haven’t seen since 2001 (Aerosmith, NSYNC, Britney Spears and Mary J. Blige).

Before we get our collective hopes up, let’s just appreciate The Weeknd’s presence at this historic event. Starting in 1967 at LA Memorial Coliseum, the Super Bowl Halftime Show became a storied American tradition. Since then, big name performers have graced the stage and that’s something he recognizes and values.
“We all grow up watching the world’s biggest acts playing the Super Bowl and one can only dream of being in that position,” he said in a statement.
“I’m humbled, honored and ecstatic to be the center of that infamous stage this year,” The Weeknd said.
Super Bowl LV is set to kick off at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, Sunday, February 7, 2021.
