On Sunday, February 13, 2022, the Super Bowl will be back, and the halftime show lineup has been announced, boasting a combined 43 Grammy wins and five musicians who will take the stage together.
Super Bowl Sunday is something that thousands of people look forward to every year, if not for the actual game, definitely for all the talent and glamour brought to the stage during the halftime show.
Next year, the halftime show will host five musicians, each of which a legend in their own right, for one of the biggest halftime shows ever.
ROC NATION X THE NFL
In 2019, the NFL partnered with Jay-Z's entertainment company Roc Nation to bring the halftime show to the stage each year. So far, the collaboration has brought The Weeknd, Shakira, and Jennifer Lopez to the stage.
The partnership has resulted in a star-studded halftime show each year, but this year is truly going to be a sight to behold as five artists take the stage with a combined 19 no. 1 Billboard albums.
Pepsi has also partnered with Roc Nation and The NFL on this show to bring Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Dr. Dre, Eminem, and Kendrick Lamar to the stage to perform together for what is sure to be one of the most memorable halftime shows ever.
The artists are as excited as the fans and have expressed their excitement publicly in statements. Dr. Dre said he was thrilled to be performing the halftime show alongside so many talented musicians in his "own backyard."
Next year's Super Bowl will be hosted in Los Angeles, which most stars call home, making the performance even more special for them. Each of the performers has ties to California, either having come from there or living there now.
Jay-Z was excited to announce the show's lineup, and it is clear from the statements he has made that he is incredibly proud of each of the musicians he has booked for the show and is excited to see them perform together.
He announced the halftime show by stating how each of the artists had a tie to California and then saying how many Grammys each had won apart from some other musical achievements.
He called Dr. Dre a "musical visionary," Snoop Dogg an "icon," Mary J Blige "a timeless queen," Eminem "a lyrical genius," and Kendrick Lamar "a young musical pioneer." He also said the show would be history in the making.
Each artist is incredibly talented and successful in their own right and will perform for the first time on stage together at The Pepsi Superbowl LVI, which will be held in the new SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
