The NFL has officially announced who will be performing a the Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show. Arguably the biggest stage in the music industry will feature some of the biggest and most legendary acts alive in hip-hop today. Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Mary J Blige will all be performing together on February 13, 2022. The show is also being produced by none other than JAY-Z.
With the Super Bowl taking place in Inglewood, California’s SoFi stadium next year, it’s only appropriate that they recruited a team heavily affiliated with West Coast hip-hop. Here’s what Dr. Dre had to say about the show in a statement:
The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime Show, and to do it in my own backyard, will be one of the biggest thrills of my career. I’m grateful to Jay-Z, Roc Nation, the NFL, and Pepsi as well as Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar for joining me in what will be an unforgettable cultural moment.
Among all the performers, we’re counting a total of 43 GRAMMY Awards. This is going to be one for the books.
