Before the Windsor-born artist did the show, Canadian Dan Akroyd performed with his band The Blues Brothers in 1997 and the theme was Blues Brothers Bash.

The 55th Super Bowl will take place in Tampa, Florida on February 7, 2021.

A Canadian played in the 2020 Super Bowl and was on the winning team. He's also a doctor and helped out with the fight against COVID-19 in Quebec.
