The first Super Bowl in Los Angeles this century will feature a star-studded halftime show worthy of Hollywood.
Pepsi, the NFL and Roc Nation announced on thursday that Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar will perform at the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI halftime show at SoFi Stadium on February 13 on NBC and Telemundo, and broadcast live on Peacock.
The five artists have combined for 43 Grammys and created 22 Billboard No. 1 albums.
For Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar, the performance will also represent a homecoming for Los Angeles artists.
“The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show, and do it in my own backyard, will be one of the greatest thrills of my career,” Dr. Dre said in a statement. “I am 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.”
This will mark the third Super Bowl Halftime Show collaboration between Pepsi, the NFL and Roc Nation. In 2020, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira performed at Super Bowl LIV in Miami, while The Weeknd headlined the Super Bowl LV halftime show in Tampa, Florida.
“On February 13, 2022, at Super Bowl LVI in Inglewood, California at the new SoFi Stadium, Dr. Dre, a Compton musical visionary, Snoop Dogg, a Long Beach icon, and Kendrick Lamar, a young musical pioneer in his own right, also from Compton, he will take center field for the performance of his life, “Shawn” JAY-Z “Carter said in a statement. “They will be joined by lyrical genius, Eminem, and eternal queen, Mary J. Blige. This is Pepsi’s Super Bowl halftime show. This is history in the making.”
