Each week there will be a special custom opening featuring landmarks and vistas from the host city and  introduce that week’s musical artist for the halftime show, which will be presented commercial free, courtesy of Genesis.

Part of the special agreement will be a unique musical performance to close each halftime show, by a different artist each week. In week one, Boyz II Men will perform a special tribute to Aretha Franklin in Detroit with special guest Tori Kelly. On select Monday nights, these performances will take place live, on the field, during halftime of the Monday Night Football game.
