Super Bowl 2014 features two of the greatest NFL teams of 2014; the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks, who will battle for the championship.
Kickoff time for Super Bowl 2014 is 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Feb. 2, at MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, N.J. Renee Fleming picks up where Alicia Keys left off last year with the National Anthem. Often referred to as the “the People's Diva,” Fleming is a four-time Grammy Award winner and a 14-time nominee. She will be joined by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra during her performance.
For the main entertainment, all eyes will be on halftime super stars Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. That performance will definitely be quite different from last year’s entertainment; Beyonce and Destiny’s Child.
As for this year’s Super Bowl ads, they are quite different and a little bit on the mature side when compared to last year’s Mercedes Benz, Go Daddy and Carl’s Jr/Hardee’s ads, each featuring Sports Illustrated swimsuit models like Kate Upton, Nina Agdal and Bar Refaeli.
This year’s Super Bowl ads range from emotional to sexy and refreshingly entertaining. According to The Guardian, the Budweiser puppy love Super Bowl ad is already gearing up to be one of the most emotionally stirring Super Bowl ads of recent times, and is a favorite among many online viewers. Then there are the super star ads.
The Kia Super Bowl ad features Laurence Fishburne back as his “Matrix” character Morpheus. David Beckham stripping down to his underwear and perhaps much more in the H&M Super Bowl ad is like dangling candy in front of a child. Sultry Scarlett Johannson is poised to star in the Sodastream Super Bowl ad. These are just a few celebrities in a pack of funny ads making their way to the Super Bowl screens on Sunday, Feb. 2.
The Feb. 2 game will showcase not only the Seahawks and Broncos, but the most expensive tickets in the history of the NFL. As the Examiner previously reported, the best game suites equal deep pocket prices. A Commissioners Club Suite ranges from $842,000 to more than $1 million, Morning Call reports, and adds that the same suite costs $350,000 for an entire New York Jets or Giants season.
