The National Football League announced that the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show will see performances from “five epic hitmakers”: Dr. Dre, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, and Snoop Dogg. Together, these five artists have a total of 43 Grammy wins and 22 No. 1 Billboard albums.
“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,” Dr. Dre said in a statement.
“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.”
The upcoming halftime show will be held at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, marking the return of the event to Los Angeles for the first time in almost thirty years. It will be broadcasted by NBC and Telemundo and streamed live by Peacock on February 13, 2022.
