Washington [US], February 13 (ANI): A documentary surrounding the making of the 2021 Super Bowl Halftime Show starring singer-songwriter The Weeknd is coming soon.
As per Variety, Showtime has announced that it will air ‘The Show’, a 90-minute feature documentary that will focus on the making of the 2021 Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show, featuring the ‘Starboy’ singer.
‘The Show’ is being helmed by Emmy nominee Nadia Hallgren and will be produced by the Pepsi in-house content studio and Boardwalk Pictures. The documentary will premiere later this year.
Nearly 100 million people around the world tuned in to watch The Weeknd’s halftime performance, and the upcoming feature documentary will take a look at just how much work went into those 13 minutes: hours, days, and months of collaboration among first-time Halftime Show executive producer Jesse Collins, executive producers Roc Nation and many more to pull off one of the biggest musical productions amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The singer had hit the stage in Tampa Bay, Florida, and performed hits including ‘The Hills’, ‘Can’t Feel My Face’, ‘I Feel It Coming’, ‘Save Your Tears’, ‘Earned It’, and ‘Blinding Lights’.
The singer was dressed in a glimmering red blazer, a black button-down shirt with matching trousers. The stage was lit with lights and the stadium sky filled with fireworks as the star performed a medley of hits backed by a choir, violinists, and masked backup dancers.
While fans were anticipating a celebrity guest to take the stage with The Weeknd, the singer stayed true to the promise of his solo act and was not joined by any surprise celebrity performers during the show. (ANI)

While announcing her bundle of joy’s arrival, she wrote in an Instagram post on Tuesday,”Gus is here.”

‘I’ve had to find another way’: Judi Dench on maintaining successful career despite eyesight loss

Published

By

Washington [US], February 28 (ANI): Oscar-winning British actor Judi Dench, on Saturday (local time) revealed about maintaining her successful career despite experiencing eyesight loss.
According to People Magazine, the ‘Philomena’ star recently appeared in a London-based charity event where she disclosed her condition, caused by age-related macular degeneration.
The 86-year-old actor also talked about how she used to memorise her scripts ever since she stopped being able to read.
“You find a way of just getting about and getting over the things that you find very difficult. I’ve had to find another way of learning lines and things, which is having great friends of mine repeat them to me over and over and over again,” Dench told.
“So I have to learn through repetition, and I just hope that people won’t notice too much if all the lines are completely hopeless!” she added.
The ‘Iris’ actor also revealed in an interview that she hates being labelled as a ‘national treasure’ as it reminds her of her age.
“For one thing, it’s a terrible label. So dusty, so dreary. For another, it relegates me to being an 86-year-old woman. Whereas in my mind’s eye I’m 6ft and willowy and about 39.”
People Magazine reported that Dench went on to explain that she feels suffocated by the title.
“Do you know what it’s like? It’s like they’ve picked me up and put me inside a little glass-fronted cabinet. Then they’ve locked the door so I can’t get out,” she told. (ANI)
