Super Bowl 2024 line up rumours: Miley Cyrus tipped as favourite to perform

The Super Bowl final isn’t just popular because of the NFL game but also for its much-anticipated halftime entertainment.

Each year, millions tune in to watch the Super Bowl halftime show, with stars putting on breathtaking performances. This year, Rihanna took to the stage in a red jumpsuit and revealed to millions of viewers that she was expecting her second child. In the past, The Weeknd, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Prince, and Madonna have performed.

Although the Super Bowl 2024, which is being held in Nevada, is still six months away, excited fans are already speculating which celebrity will perform at the event.

Miley Cyrus has recently emerged as the new bookies’ favourite, becoming the frontrunner ahead of other popular choices such as Harry Styles and Jack Harlow.

The Super Bowl 2024 is being held on Sunday, February 11, at 6pm local time (2am UK GMT).

So far, no celebrity has confirmed an appearance but who are those being whispered about in rumours?

Harry Styles

In the past few months, several fans have speculated on social media that the Super Bowl 2024 halftime show could be headlined by Harry Styles.

The 29-year-old former One Direction star and Grammy award winner hasn’t spoken publicly about it or confirmed any news. However, it hasn’t stopped loyal fans of the As It Was musician calling on social media for Styles to agree to next year’s slot. He hasn’t announced any tour dates for 2024, so it looks as if his availability is good.

Taylor Swift

Another star many fans are hoping to see at the Super Bowl 2024 is Taylor Swift. Although Swift hasn’t addressed the rumours, there has been plenty of talk in previous years about her making an NFL appearance. Some fans are hoping 2024 could be her time but there have been reports that said she has declined the opportunity.

She recently released her international tour dates for 2024 and some fans may be dismayed to see that she is touring Japan around the same time as the Super Bowl.

However, the actual day of the Super Bowl event, February 11, is still clear in her tour diary.

Miley Cyrus

According to a tweet earlier this year, Miley Cyrus is another contender. Having released the single Flowers and subsequent album at the start of 2023, a Super Bowl appearance might make sense.

However, like the other stars on this list, Cyrus has kept quiet about any upcoming Super Bowl performance, so at this point it is just rumour.

Jack Harlow

The singer made his chart breakthrough with his second album, Sweet Actionin March 2020.

The singer’s debut studio album, That’s What They All Say, was released on December 11, 2020. The album remains the singer’s most popular and successful album, with platinum records in the US and Canada.

He is a newly emerging rap artist and constant talk of his work has caused his odds to fall. He doesn’t have any tour dates in the diary for February.

Lil Nas X

Lil Nas X already appeared in a Super Bowl advert in 2020, so could a halftime performance be next? Fans hope so and are calling for the Old Town Road star to perform at the 2024 Super Bowl.

Lil Nas X hasn’t confirmed any 2024 performance or tour dates, so his diary is free in February at the moment.

Who is the bookies’ favourite?

The odds are ever-changing on the headline act but, according to Betway, Miley Cyrus is the unexpected frontrunner at the moment.

The superstar singer released her new single, Used To Be Young, after the success of catchy hit Flowers earlier this year, and now bookies have placed her as the favourite to star in the halftime show, with odds of 6/4.

Harry Styles is the second favourite, with odds of 5/2.

Jack Harlow is just behind, being backed at 5/1 and, although Taylor Swift is considered a rule out because of her Eras tour, Betway is still backing her at 6/1 to take to the stage.
