The Pro Bowl got everyone hyped for the Big Game happening next Sunday! Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada was the place to be as it's also the home of the Las Vegas Raiders. It was a battle of the conferences, AFC vs. NFC for an all-star game. Fil-Am and Bay Area native, Sibley Scoles hosted the Red Carpet event and dance crew Jabbawockeez took over halftime entertainment. Sibley held it down pre-game with interviews and an inside look behind the scenes.
There were a couple of changes in the format but one thing stayed the same. The anticipated halftime show with none other than the Jabbawockeez! It was a full out production that included a marching band, NFL cheer teams, and dope choreography. The cool part of it was how the Jabbackwockeez involved all the cheer team and band in their set.
After the performance, the second half kicked off and ended with the AFC beating out the NFC with a 41-35 win, making it their fifth straight. Raiders' pass rusher Maxx Crosby was the Defensive MVP and Chargers QB Justin Herbert was the Offensive MVP. This all leads to next week's main event.

The track fits her energetic vibe and the music video showcases her insane dance skills. It “talks about the kind of love that leaves someone with nothing – the kind of love that fizzles out as quick as it blazes,” AC revealed in her online press conference. AC aimed to show a different side of herself as a singer and songwriter, working with Jonathan Manalo and Trisha Denise on the track creating sassy lyrics like:
Whatever you'll say
I don't wanna hear it, I don't wanna
Your love is a game
I'm never gonna miss it, never gonna
Can't believe I wastеd, so much time on you
Gave you evеrything I have
The release of AC's “Fool No Mo” makes her the first artist to be launched under the newly-established Star Magic Records.
