Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar have been chosen to perform at the halftime show of the next National Football League (NFL) Super Bowl, to be held in Los Angeles on February 13, 2022.
The NFL and Pepsi, sponsor of this show, recalled Thursday in a statement that this Super Bowl will have great significance for Los Angeles because it is the first to host the Californian city in nearly 30 years.
In addition, Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg are originally from Southern California.
“The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl half-time show, and to do it in my own backyard, will be one of the biggest thrills of my career,” noted rap legend Dr. Dre.
The Super Bowl halftime performance is a truly global event that attracts as much attention as the game itself.
The Weekend headlined this show in February 2021 in a performance that had to be adapted to pandemic restrictions and did not garner good reviews.
Very different was the result obtained by Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, who with a very Latin bet and with guests like J Balvin or Bad Bunny triumphed in the Super Bowl of 2020 just before the coronavirus paralyzed the planet.
Maroon 5 (2019), Justin Timberlake (2018), Lady Gaga (2017), Coldplay (2016), Katy Perry (2015), Bruno Mars (2014) and Beyoncé (2013) complete the recent list of Super Bowl performances.
