If you’re a diehard fan of The Weeknd, you may want to know how to watch The Weeknd’s Super Bowl 2021 Halftime Show online for free. For those who don’t know, The Weeknd is the Super Bowl LV Halftime Show performer and will join the ranks of artists like Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and Beyoncé when he will take the stage at the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 7.

The Super Bowl LV, which is the 55th Super Bowl in the National Football League’s history (for those who can’t read roman numerals), will see the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs face off for the 2021 Super Bowl ring. While the game will see an exciting match between the Chiefs and Bucs’ respective star quarterbacks, Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady, viewers who aren’t NFL fans (which we’re sure there are a lot of) are likely only interested in one thing: the Halftime Show.

At a news conference for the Super Bowl LV on Thursday, February 4, The Weeknd explained how his performance will be different than Halftime Shows past. Due to the current health crisis, The Weeknd won’t perform on the field aside from a brief interlude. Most of his performance, which breaks Super Bowl tradition, will see him sing from a stage set up in the stands of the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, to limit his contact with the coaches and the players.

The Weeknd, who invested $7 million of his own money into his performance, also confirmed that he will have no special guests at his show, unlike past performers. “I’ve been reading a lot of rumors…I wouldn’t bet on it. There wasn’t any room to fit it in the narrative, in the story I was telling in the performance,” he said at the conference.

Regardless of if you’re a Bucs or a Chiefs fan, The Weeknd’s performance will be one to watch. So how do you watch The Weeknd’s Super Bowl 2021 Halftime Show online for free exactly? Well, read on to find out.
