This is a remarkable team! Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, and Mary J. Blige performed in Super Bowl LVI’s right before halftime concert.
The performers played simultaneously on the same Sunday, February 13, at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, just before a stoppage in the match featuring both the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams.
The program began with “The Next Episode” as well as “California Love” by Dre and Snoop. The rapper 50 Cent subsequently produced an unexpected cameo to sing his smash “In Da Club.” Blige then sang “Family Affair” as well as “No More Drama” already when Lamar hit the stage with “Alright.” Following that, Eminem enthralled the audience with “Lose Yourself,” and Dre and Snoop completed the spectacular performance with “Still D.R.E.”
In September 2021, the NFL revealed that Dre, 56, Snoop, 50, Lamar, 34, Eminem, 49, and Blige, 51, will lead the halftime performance.
“The chance to play at this show, especially in my own hometown, is the greatest joys of my career,” Dre remarked at the time.
Jay-Z, whose Roc Nation label cooperated with Pepsi and the NFL for the third year in a row on the halftime show, previewed the appearance at the time.
“Andre Romelle , an unique musical innovator from California, Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., a Long Beach veteran, and Kendrick Lamar, a youthful musical revolutionary from Compton, will take deep center for a once-in-a-lifetime event,” stated the rapper, 52. The Pepsico Super Bowl Halftime Concert is now underway. “We’re seeing the forging of history.”
Snoop said earlier this month to The Associated Press that performing at the Super Bowl was a “dream come true,” particularly since he got to share the experience with his buddies.
“We’re all connected. “We’re all one,” the “Bang It As Though it’s damn hot” rapper said. “When you truly think about it, it’s what the globe needs to acknowledge — that we have to have to join together rather than divide or separate.”
Snoop planned to take on the mantle of past Super Bowl performers like Nelly, Sean “Dolly” Combs, Travis Scott, as well as Queen Latifah.
“I’m honestly assuming I’m dreaming because I literally can not comprehend they’ll allow a true hip-hop performer on the platform in such an NFL Super Bowl,” he said. “We’re simply going to have to wait for that time and put something fantastic together, do what we’re renowned for, and contribute to the legacy.”
Concerning probable anxieties, Snoop believed that he would not be concerned until viewers’ responses began to pour in.
“I won’t comprehend it until it occurs,” he said. “I’m in the zone when it’s occurring.” I’m sticking to the script, being laser-focused, on target, sounding nice, looking good, and feeling good. I want to deliver a fantastic presentation. After the event, I’ll be apprehensive about viewing it to see how others respond. But that’s nothing when I’m going through it.”
