The NFL has yet to announce exactly who will be performing at the halftime show for Super Bowl 57 at State Farm Stadium in Arizona, but many believe the league dropped a major hint last night.
At midnight, it was announced that Apple would be the new sponsor of the Super Bowl Halftime show, which previously belonged to Pepsi. The news itself didn’t offer any hints regarding who might be performing on February 12, but the time of the announcement seems to have many cluing in on this year’s plan.
The announcement from the NFL came at midnight, which just so happens to be when pop musician Taylor Swift always drops her big announcements. Swift also has an album coming out later this year, leading many to believe that the Super Bowl would be the perfect place for her to promote her new tunes.
The league curiously dropped the news at midnight — something that’s been associated with Swift for YEARS. She’s put out albums twice since 2020 that were released at that time, and she’s sung the word “midnight” hundreds of times in her tracks.
Swift is also set to release a new album next month … titled “Midnights.”
Several media outlets have since come out and reported that Taylor is expected to be officially announced as the Halftime Show performer sometime soon.
Of course, this news is not yet official. But it didn’t stop social media from assuming it was a forgone conclusion and acting accordingly.
