Also, Super Bowl LV is a showdown between two of the league’s biggest stars. In his first season with the Bucs, quarterback Tom Brady is chasing his seventh Super Bowl win. Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is hoping to help the team land the Lombardi Trophy for the second year in a row.

Although seating is limited at the Super Bowl this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic—the stadium will only be one-third full—those who do attend and all of us watching from home will have some A-list entertainment to enjoy. 

Miley Cyrus will perform in the TikTok Tailgate show, H.E.R. will sing “America the Beautiful,” Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan will team up for “The Star-Spangled Banner,” and The Weeknd will headline the halftime show.
