There are always a lot of rumors flying around about potential Super Bowl halftime show performers, but no one could’ve predicted what’s coming our way next year. The show’s lineup has been unveiled and it includes not one, not two, but five hip-hop superstars.

Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, and Mary J. Blige will be in charge of headlining the upcoming Super Bowl LVI halftime show. Pepsi’s VP of marketing, Todd Kaplan, is describing the upcoming show as an epic, unforgettable celebration of the impact hip hop has today.

“The Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show has become a landmark cultural moment, bringing about some of the most iconic performances over the years… We are thrilled to bring together such an incredible array of talented, record-breaking musicians to put on a performance for the ages,” said Kaplan in a statement.

Pepsi and NFL assembled this lineup along with Jay-Z’s company Roc Nation and they’re describing the upcoming show as a larger-than-life performance of hits from the quintet’s collective catalog. For some of the artists, Super Bowl LVI hits close to home because it will be the first in nearly three decades to be held in the Los Angeles area. The Big Game will take place on February 13th, 2022 at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
