Rihanna will always be that girl and this just proves it! according to an adjusted Nielsen report Tuesday (May 2), Rihanna’s Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show is officially the most-watched halftime show performance of all time!
Her big performance had 121.017 million viewers during the Feb. 12-dated broadcast. This also makes Super Bowl LVII between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles big game the most-watched Super Bowl in history.
“After a review that revealed encoding irregularities as well as issues with out-of-home measurement,” Nielsen revised this year’s original figure of 113.1 million by 2 million. Shortly after Rihanna’s performance in early February, it was announced that her performance was the second most-watched halftime show in history, with Katy Perry’s 2015 performance initially taking the top spot.
Perry’s halftime show was reported to have 121 million views back in February. However, that number has since been surpassed by Rihanna’s halftime performance this year.
