For many Americans, the actual football game is not the main attraction of the Super Bowl. There are entertaining commercials and the national anthem but there are viewers who will tune in just to watch the halftime show.

This year's featured performer is The Weeknd. The 30-year-old Canadian singer, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, will do close to a 15-minute set at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

The Super Bowl halftime show is expected to take place approximately 90 minutes after kickoff, which means The Weeknd is expected to take the stage at about 8 p.m. ET. An NFL half takes 30 minutes but there are several breaks due to timeouts, a 2-minute warning, penalties and other stoppages.

In 2020, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira performed at the Super Bowl in Miami with special guests Bad Bunny, J Balvin and Emme Muñiz.

The Weeknd told the NFL Network he would be performing solo.

“I’ve been reading a lot of rumors,” he said. “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.”

The Weeknd has not revealed the setlist for his upcoming performance, but there are plenty of songs to choose from considering he has released three No. 1 selling albums in the U.S.

His latest album, “After Hours,” features his hit songs “Blinding Lights” and “Heartless.”

Throughout the years, the singer has released a number of chart-topping songs, including “I Feel It Coming” featuring Daft Punk, “Starboy featuring Daft Punk,” “The Hills,” and “Earned It.”

The Weeknd has also been recognized for his talent and picked up several awards, including three Grammys, nine Billboard Music Awards, and five American Music Awards.

Fans can catch the big game on TV or stream it from the CBS Sports App.

Super Bowl LV will air at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS. The Kansas City Chiefs are looking to repeat as champions, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is looking for his seventh championship.
