Some watch the Super Bowl looking for a great football game, and others come for the new commercials, but a large portion of Americans also come for the Pepsi Halftime Show! Once the second quarter reaches an end and the teams prepare for the second half, attendees and home viewers are treated to an epic performance from some of the hottest artists around. Some legendary talent has graced the Super Bowl over the years, including Prince, The Rolling Stones, Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Michael Jackson, and most recently, The Weeknd! But now, it’s up to a new roster of talent to take on the performing duties!

On September 30, 2021 it was announced that Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar would perform at Super Bowl LVI on February 13. These five stars are some of the biggest names in hip-hop and R&B, and this will be the first time all of them will be performing together! Dr. Dre is one of the most notable producers of hip-hop, and the other four artists have collaborated with him numerous times, with Snoop and Eminem being personally mentored by him. Combined, the five have 44 Grammy awards, with Eminem’s 15 making up almost a third of that total, then Kendrick with 13, Mary J. Blige with 9, and Dr. Dre with 7. With each having a wealth of popular discographies, it’ll be interesting to see which songs are selected for the performance. I’ve heard rumors that Mary J. Blige will only have one song, and that it’ll be a solo effort, and that “California Love”, a famous song from Dr. Dre and Tupac, will be heard. I’m sure Kendrick will also be able to showcase some of his hit songs from his album “DAMN.”, and I think Snoop Dogg will mostly just be there in a supporting capacity as an artist. Either way, it’ll be a must-see for sure!

Super Bowl LVI will be held in Los Angeles, as the LA Rams get to take on the Cincinnati Bengals in their own So-Fi Stadium at 6:30 ET. The game will be held on NBC, as will the halftime show! So, be sure to grab your snacks and stay tuned for another grand finale to an exciting and unpredictable NFL season!
