Reviewing Rihanna: The Hits and Misses of the Super Bowl Halftime Show

Rihanna’s highly anticipated Super Bowl LVII halftime show was met with mixed reviews, and the biggest question of the night – was her special guest her unborn baby?

Superfans praised Rihanna while critics complained about the mediocre performance. The internet has been fixated on whether she is pregnant or not. Sunday’s halftime show was dominated by a string of greatest hits from Rihanna’s collection. She opened her set with “Bitch Better Have My Money,” a hit that debuted in 2015.

The way back playback was followed by a sequence of some of their best work, most sung from a platform suspended in the air high above the crowd. Critics lambasted the star for her minimalistic choreography and complained that her show lacked energy, but the internet exploded with comments suggesting that this show was also a pregnancy announcement, which makes this a pretty daring performance that deserves a lot of credit. Either way, Rihanna has people talking.

Social media erupted seconds after Rihanna took the stage in an all-red number. People around the world began to question whether she had just announced her pregnancy, and her apparent baby bump instantly began to show.

The star’s fans marveled at the show she put on suspended in the air and absorbed her simple yet precise choreography. (RELATED: REPORT: Rihanna Teases Her Super Bowl Performance, New Details Released)

Some criticized the singer for not singing live.

Rihanna performed other hits, including the classics “Rude Boy”, “Work” and “Diamonds”, and was quickly introduced immediately after her performance.
