Maybe I was paying attention to tennis, but was there any advanced buzz about the Super Bowl performers before the game? It came as a complete surprise to me that H.E.R. was there to sing “America the Beautiful.” I was also surprised by the Aerosmith-like rock arrangement! It was a good performance though, her voice is beautiful and I was pleasantly surprised by how well the song worked with that arrangement.

For the National Anthem, country star Eric Church performed with Jazmine Sullivan. Jazmine killed it. Eric Church… uh, did not kill it. Jazmine was tasked with saving that white dude. Jazmine’s beautiful white suit was by New York fashion house Area, and supposedly her look was a tribute to Whitney Houston.

And here’s the pre-recorded segment about racism and BLM where Alicia Keys sings the Black National Anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”

Also, what did everyone think of Hologram Vince Lombardi? I didn’t mind the “voiceover” aspect of it, but the actual CGI/Hologram Lombardi was kind of freaky. The technology hasn’t been perfected, you guys, we’re still dealing with the creepy Uncanny Valley situation.
