There are a number of milestone moments in the career of any musical artist. Headlining the NFL's Super Bowl halftime show is right up there with the best of them.

The likes of Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake and Coldplay have brought their magic to the event over the years. Dr. Dre, Eminem, 50 Cent, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar combined for an unforgettable show in 2022.

The National Football League have opted to resort back to one main headline name this year, though don't be surprised to see a special guest or two appear along the way.

Here is everything we know about the 2023 Super Bowl half-time headline act.

Who will headline the Super Bowl half-time show in 2023?

There had been rumours that Taylor Swift was set to take to the stage in Arizona. Unfortunately for fans of T-Swizzle, that is not the case.

Instead, it will be 9-time Grammy Award-winning superstar Rihanna who will be headlining the first ever Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show in February.

The Barbadian is likely to combine a mix of new music and old-school classics when she takes to the stage, with fans already busy knocking up their dream setlists on social media.

Which special guests will perform?

Rihanna has worked with some huge names over the years, and we expect to see a few of them arrive on stage with the 34-year-old in February.

We're very confident that Jay-Z will make an appearance. The 52-year-old has worked with Rihanna on some of the biggest hits of her career to date, with "Umbrella" and "Run This Town" almost certain to be on the setlist.

Drake could also feature. The Canadian collaborated with RiRi on "What's My Name?" and "Work", two songs which are likely to be strong contenders for a spot in the set.

Could we see Eminem make an appearance at the Super Bowl halftime show for a second consecutive year? The rapper's appearance at the 2022 Super Bowl went down a treat with NFL fans, and after featuring on "Love The Way You Lie" and "The Monster", it's likely we could be seeing him again this year.
