Of course, it's a long-anticipated day for football fanatics, but the annual event has rakes in views from those who don't even care for the sport.

What traditionally began as a college marching band has transformed into one of the biggest and sought after gigs in the world - with many of our favorite a-listers crossing their fingers that they'll land the job.

With the likes of New Kids on the Block, Gloria Estefan, and Michael Jackson performing at the event - it soon became a tradition for high-profile acts to headline.

Fast forward to now, and several big names have taken to the stage.

The likes of Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and Prince has performed the lucrative gig.

The ads are another huge part of the event.

And, as of last year, a thirty-second advertising slot would set you back a whopping $5.25 million. Safe to say, the price has skyrocketed over the years.

This year, this price has risen once again...

A 30-second Super Bowl ad will cost companies around $5.6 million - $186,666 per second.

So it's no surprise that big-name brands pour everything into these ads...

Brand's put millions of dollars into the celebrity-studded ads.

But back to the football... on Sunday, the world tuned in to watch the highly-anticipated Super Bowl LIV.
