Parent page: All About the Super Bowl
There was a lot of action in the 2020 Super Bowl, other than the exciting game between Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers. The Shakira J-Lo performance was noteworthy, and Demi Lovato’s performance of the national anthem drew rave reviews. 2020 also marked 100 years of the existence of the NFL. Players from days gone by got recognition for their contribution to the game. Unfortunately, one of the football greats, O.J. Simpson, did not attend.
Kobe Bryant Tribute
Kobe Bryant was one of the greatest athletes of all time. On the 26th of January 2020, he lost his life in a helicopter crash. His death shook the world to its core. In a massive show of solidarity, both teams lined up at the 24-yard line as a way of honouring Kobe.
Demi Lovato Comeback
Demi Lovato has had a series of unfortunate events that have had an impact on her life and career. She has been quite candid about her struggle with mental illness and drug addiction. It was, therefore, great to see her perform the national anthem at the Super Bowl. What makes the moment uniquely special for her is that, ten years ago, she had predicted that one day she would perform on that very platform.
Thrilling Performance From The Players
Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers did not disappoint. By halftime, the game was 10-10. The 49ers came back more aggressively and took a 20-10 lead into the fourth quarter. Tyreek Hill delivered for the Chief’s and was a significant contributor to the 31-20 victory. It was a series of firsts for the Kansas City Chiefs. For the first time in 50 years, they were able to celebrate a Super Bowl title. Patrick Mahomes was able to score his first Super Bowl and earned MVP honours. Head coach Andy Reid took the Championship after 28 years of coaching in the NFL.
