With the Super Bowl 50 and the 58th Annual Grammy Awards taking place in just a few weeks, it's only right that CBS starts promoting both events. The network has a big month ahead of them since they'll be hosting both TV events just a little over a week apart from each other. So they put Stephen Colbert, Rihanna, Phil Simms, James Brown and Jim Nantz in one commercial to get fans excited for both events.
Nantz, Brown and Simms will be the NFL announcement team during the game and of course Rihanna will be at the Grammys so the commercial catches them squaring up for which event will take place first. Colbert plays the funny referee and flips the coin to of course the Super Bowl going first. Rihanna responds with, "I'm worth the wait." The commercial is short but sweet and the first to many more to come, we are sure.
We won't know who'll be playing in the Super Bowl yet nor do we know who will be performing at the Grammys but it should be a huge night for both events. The Grammys nominees have been announced though and that has gotten fans very excited. According to the NFL site, Coldplay will be performing during the Super Bowl halftime show but what bumps it up a notch: Beyonce will be joining them! The Associated Press confirmed last week that the songstress will be performing during the halftime show and of course, the beyhive went crazy! If you all can remember, Beyonce headlined the 2013 halftime show and was joined by her Destiny's Child bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. The show was so great that everyone blamed the outage on her electrifying performance. Let's hope it's just as good this year!
