    Superbowl performers do not get paid!

    NewsThursday 27 February 2014
    The superbowl is probably the biggest event that have millions of eye balls looking at them.
    Artists such as Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Paul McCartney played in front of that huge audience to be compensated with no money at all.
    The Superbowl has never paid any performer other than the players. Players salary may go up to $92,000 when they are on the winning side and $46,000 on the loosing side.
    One of the reason is that performers would receive much more in result of performing at the Superbowl, such as an increase in Youtube plays, music purchase, and overall creates interest. 
    The NFL Director of Programming Lawrence Randall said: "We’re putting someone up there for 12 and a half minutes in front of the largest audience that any television program garners in the United States.  It’s a pretty good deal.  It’s the famous win-win for both parties."
