2024 Super Bowl Rewind

2024+Super+Bowl+Rewind

The super bowl game is a highly anticipated event where millions of people watch and attend. February has the most entertaining event for people all around, bringing together people from all backgrounds to enjoy a simple football game. While many enjoy just the football game, this event has something for everyone. From some of the best advertisements of the year, the halftime show, and celebrity guest appearances, the super bowl hosts a great reason to gather around with your friends and family for a fun night of food, laughs, and fun times. 

This year the super bowl game hosts the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. With a throwback halftime performance from Usher. The most watched celebrity guest attending the super bowl is Chiefs Travis Kelce’s girlfriend, Taylor Swift. Taylor Swift has been known to be a good luck charm and steal the attention from the cameras. Since attending the past games of the Chiefs, many look forward to seeing her on the big screen during commercial breaks. 

This year the super bowl started off very slowly, ending the halftime with the score 10-3, giving the 49er’s the lead for the second half. Many plays were not executed completely, making the team dependent on field goals. Finally, it was in the fourth quarter that the Chiefs had a comeback and got a 13-10 lead in the third quarter. The competition rose with both teams pushing to outscore one another before the time dwindled down. The fourth quarter ended with scores of 19-19 from both teams, inducing an overtime lasting almost an hour, for the Chiefs to come out with the lead and win with a score of 25-22. Many fans were upset and were rooting for the 49er’s to win. 

When students at WHS were asked, 39% said they wanted the 49er’s to win while 22% said they were rooting for the Chiefs to win. On the other hand 40% of people said the thing they were looking forward to most was Usher’s halftime performance. Usher brought out guest appearances from Alicia Keys, H.E.R, Lil Jon, Ludacris, Will.i.am, and Jermaine Dupri. Alicia Keys left the crowd stunned with their intimate performance starting off with a broken note. Usher performed many throwback songs and dance moves that excited the crowd and left them in awe of his discography. 

This year, the Super Bowl had a total of 123.7 million views and was one of the most watched Super Bowls ever and one of the most popular TV programs in a long time. Coming off previous television events like the Grammys, and Olympic games in previous years. This is one of the most watched television events in years.
