H.E.R., Alicia Keys and Jazmine Sullivan were trending on Twitter after performing as the opening acts of the game. 

Miley Cyrus fans, former Hannah Montana fans and fans of Abel/The Weeknd consistently made their artists trend throughout the entire first half of the game.

Drake, State Farm, Lil Baby, Lil Nas X, Winona Ryder, Brad Pitt and more also trended after their guest appearances in this year’s Super Bowl commercials. 

The most recently famed Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman, had trending time after reading a poem honoring three captains during the big game

Last but not least, another game highlight was the trend #PACKED, where people voiced their concerns over the amount of people inside of the stadium, very Covid-19 chic. 

From people saying Drake was in the State Farm commercial just to get a check this year, to people praying for Miley Cyrus to make a Hannah Montana comeback, Twitter trends have once again proved to be a highlight of modern-day society.
