Super Bowl LVI is months away, but tensions are already running high after we learned who’s going to be performing at the halftime show. The upcoming musical performance will be a true hip-hop celebration, with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, and Mary J. Blige serving as headliners.
To bring this epic performance to life, NFL joined forces with Roc Nation and PepsiCo, and their senior VP of media, sports, and entertainment said they wanted to blow the roof off the concept of collaboration with this year’s performance.
“Along with the NFL and Roc Nation, we continue to try and push the limits on what fans can expect during the most exciting 12 minutes in music; this year’s superstar line-up is sure to deliver a mind-blowing performance,” said Harter in an official statement.
The five performers have won 43 Grammys between them, and their choice isn’t accidental. Super Bowl LVI will bring back NFL’s biggest night to the Los Angeles area for the first time in almost three decades. Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg are two of the faces of the West Coast hip-hop revolution, while Lamar is one of the biggest hip-hop pioneers of his generation and hails from Compton.
Super Bowl LVI is set to take place on February 13th, 2022 at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
