Rihanna could perform at the Oscars and do a double after the Super Bowl | Music
The musical return of Rihanna which began at the end of 2022 with their double collaboration for the soundtrack of Black Panther Wakanda Forever could have two stellar performances in the first months of this new year. The first, on February 12 at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale (Arizona, United States) is already confirmed within the musical intermission of the super bowl. The second, at the Oscars ceremony could be very soon.
Because the name of the soloist from Barbados has begun to sound very strongly to lead the musical performances of the big night in Hollywood. For now, Riri’s songs are part of the first 15 pre-selected songs to compete for Best Song and on January 24, in the reading of the Oscars 2023 nominations we will leave doubts.
But when his name begins to appear in the pools, it is for a reason and there is no doubt that there is no better showcase to show his new musical project, the one that we have been waiting for for more than half a decade, than in two events like the Super Bowl and the Awards Oscar. “The Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world, it’s an entertainer’s dream to be on a stage like that. But it’s stressful. You want to do well. You know, the whole world is watching. And they’re rooting for you. And I want to do well,” the soloist told ET about her time at SB.
In fact, if Rihanna is finally confirmed as an interpreter at the ceremony, she would become the first woman in history to have participated in the two biggest industry shows in the US in the same year. Only one soloist achieved this milestone before: Phil Collins in 2000. Although on that occasion the legendary Genesis drummer was not the headliner of the Super Bowl break but one more artist in a choral performance.
The competition for Rihanna will not be easy since among the 15 pre-candidates for the Oscar there are other big names of international success such as Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez or The Weeknd. If all of them are part of the final selection, the red carpet of those Oscars could be one of the most valued at a cinematographic and musical level.
We will have to be very attentive to what happens with the 2023 Golden Globes because Rihanna is also nominated there and for many it is the prelude to the Oscars. For now, the organization of this event has not confirmed that any superstar (Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga also compete in the same category) will take the stage).
