    Let’s discuss set list opinions on the choice etc. here instead of in the AOTY thread.

    Personally I like Abels music but I think he should definitely have at least one guest with him

    FYC
    AOTY: After Hours, Fetch The Boltcutters, Folklore, Future Nostalgia, K Bye For Now, Magdalene, Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial, Punisher

    He’s going to have to bleep so many words out.

    He’ll do his more family-friendly commercial songs with a bigger emphasis on After Hours.

    Blinding Lights
    In Your Eyes
    Starboy
    I Feel it Coming
    Can’t Feel My Face (maybe)

    I think BBTM and Kiss Land stuff will be ignored. CFMF may be the only one to show up in the setlist from those album(s).

    Ariana or Doja as guest?

    Really interested in his setlist because he’s got like 3 songs without any prominent cursing in them.

    Rihanna turned down Superbowl twice, due to the Colin Kaepernick issue, but only sell-outs would give in to NFL. Suits him great.

    Highly acclaimed by all critics with 88/100 metascore

    I see Ariana as he has more songs with her. Also I know this isn’t happening but I love Earned It and In the Night so I wish he performed one of those but the only songs we’ll get from that era are The Hills and CFMF

    We will see. He’s just not a commanding performer to me. Bruno, Beyoncé, JLo and Shakira are all universally lauded entertainers. Singing won’t be an issue since most Super Bowl performers lip sync nowadays, so we are saved from his screechy tone and off key singing. But I mean, as a performer and entertainer? Just a big pile of meh! This will be a halftime show that will rely more on the visuals. Also who the hell will he sing to? A virtual audience? The nfl players only? I doubt COVID will be over by then. A mass vaccine will be available in April at the earliest. Congrats to Abel, and like I said earlier this year whomever is the next Super Bowl headliner, they’ll have a lot to prove because Shakira and JLo killed it this year!

    I would invite Doja TBH. Ariana and The Weeknd is totally too slow for comfort. In Your Eyes is such a fun synth track!

    This is great news! The Weeknd has done a great job at his live performances so far; I love how he adds little vocal inflections to his songs and tweaks them slightly every time he performs. He also has so many bangers from the After Hours era that he can perform here (I expect to hear all 3 songs in the “80’s trilogy”), plus from past era’s like Can’t Feel My Face and Starboy (though he may have to censor that one quite a bit). In terms of guests, I’d love to see Doja Cat join him so that they can perform In Your Eyes Remix together: plus Doja’s a great live performer too and has done a great job at her recent performances, so I think she would be a great guest pick.
