Fireworks, jockstraps can’t save The Weeknd’s Super Bowl halftime show

TAMPA, Fla. – The Weeknd's Super Bowl halftime show opened with a blast of songs and chorale artists that caused it to feel like the pop star was acting the hero us all. Be that as it may, The Weeknd was no deliverer on Sunday night. 


All the projection screens, firecrackers and light shows on the planet (and there were A LOT) couldn't save us from a not terrible, but not great either execution that disappointed. The Weeknd is a brilliant entertainer and as much a visionary as any advanced craftsman with regards to exhibiting popular music on a sound and visual scale. 


Yet, his specialty didn't coordinate the scale he was performing on Sunday. The sound (not his flaw) was horrifying, best case scenario. The initial exhibition of "Starboy" set up for a wearying set. It didn't help that The Weeknd conveyed the early pieces of the exhibition on his shoulders alone, supported by projection screens, backing vocalists and artists that blurred away from plain sight.

Things improved when he moved behind the stage and performed "Can't Feel My Face" while emulating the light and mirror impacts of his new recordings. It's the place where The Weeknd works best, at the focal point of confusion that catches your creative mind. 


The Weeknd immediately got back to the stage where he stood his ground from a singing viewpoint during an exhibition of "The Hills." Still, it felt a piece quieted contrasted with ongoing Super Bowl exhibitions from any semblance of Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, or Lady Gaga. Moving methods a great deal with regards to a show and that is not The Weeknd's brand name. 


In any case, he got things during the last bit, heaps of swathed entertainers (that is his most recent contrivance all things considered) wearing (um) athletic supporters on their faces (Note: They were really gauzes as a component of The Weeknd's "Twilight" trick yet still...), to go along with him on the field during "Blinding Lights," the tune the NFL and CBS had installed in our minds for quite a long time. Firecrackers followed, however you were left actually pondering those athletic supporters gauzes (Because how should you not?). 


Tragically, the Weeknd's presentation wasn't pretty much as noteworthy as the pageantry and condition would recommend. His resume looks like a star, yet The Weeknd's Super Bowl execution didn't satisfy everyone's expectations.
