Rihanna, Ne-Yo, Keri Hilson to Headline Super Bowl Events
Iconic classic rockers the Who may be headlining the Super Bowl XLIV Halftime show, but R&B will also be part of the weekend's festivities. Among the artists that will be performing around Dolphin Stadium in Miami, the site of this year's big game, include Rihanna, Ne-Yo, Keri Hilson and tween heartthrob Justin Beiber.
Rihanna is bringing her 'Rated R' hits straight to South Beach. The Bajan singer will headline the Pepsi Super Bowl Fan Jam on Feb. 5, two days prior to the Feb. 7 kick off. Usher's protégé Beiber will perform alongside Rihanna at the free Pepsi-sponsored event.
Two songwriters-turned-superstars will command the crowd at ESPN The Magazine's NEXT event on Feb. 6. Grammy Award-winning singer Ne-Yo and Grammy-nominated singer Keri Hilson are putting on their show at the storied Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel. Athletes and celebrity guests will watch the 'Knock You Down' collaborators underneath a custom-made, 25,000 square-foot, clear-top tent on the oceanside property. Producer and former A Tribe Called Quest member Q-Tip will supply the music by deejaying the evening's festivities.
As previously reported, Ludacris will be hosting events in conjunction with the launch of his new top-shelf alcohol, Conjure Cognac. As Super Bowl XLIV approaches, expect to hear more on performers and parties.
