Rihanna's comeback is the event of the year, as she gears up for a 13-minute Super Bowl Halftime performance. It's the first time the singer would take the stage, following a hiatus post-ANTI era in 2016, and it's all music fans can talk about.

Here's everything we know about the much-anticipated performance.

Rihanna's physically fit and ready to take the stage following the birth of her first child with A$AP Rocky last year. She said it took a while for her to get back into the zone because of how long it was since she performed professionally. Plus, there was also all that residual baby weight.

Representing Immigrants Worldwide

The 34-year-old is excited and terrified to return to the stage, considering she is representing immigrants. Her halftime trailer featured children from her Island, with a text bubble describing her life as a singer. Rihanna said she was an island girl with a dream before becoming a billionaire.

Where And When To Watch The Performance?

The performance would take place at the State Farm Stadium in Arizona at 23:30 GMT. Rihanna would perform for only 13 minutes, although the break would last for 30 minutes. Ad breaks would take up the rest of the 17 minutes.

The Show Would Have Most Of Her Hits

Rihanna said there are 39 versions of the setlist because it wasn't easy to narrow a 2-hour set into 13 minutes. With more than 10 top ten hits on the Billboard Hot 100, it's easy to see how this posed a dilemma.

Who Else Is Coming?

Which guest star would surprise fans?

Another big question on everyone's mind is: "Who's the guest artist for the night?" Although Badgal Riri can handle a 13-minute set alone, Super Bowl Halftime shows are famous for bringing out unexpected performers.

Surprise Performances Color The Halftime Performance

During Madonna's headline, she brought out M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj (fans hope Minaj would come back with Riri). Beyoncé and Bruno Mars shared a set with Coldplay. And last year, we had Hip Hop royalty at the So-Fi stadium, from Dr. Dre and Mary J. Blige to Eminem, 50 Cent, and Snoop Dogg.

Expect The Best

Rihanna said the team is working overtime to deliver an unforgettable performance. The singer is ready to stand by whatever verdict the public gives hence her involvement in every aspect of the production.
